Hiking in Taiwan is unlike any hiking I've ever done. For one, the climate is lush and tropical so the plant growth is thicker and greener than most hikes I've seen.
Secondly, the trails are much more manicured than your average walk in the woods. There are fountains and wood sculptures as well as stone monuments to figures such as Confucius.
Thanks Taiwan for a lovely and fulfilling (and just plain filling) hike. I can't say the health benefits outweighed the caloric content, but I will say the bar for an enjoyable hike has been set pretty high.
