Songluohu - 松羅湖

Songluohu 松羅湖 is a kind of swampy lake set in a small basin and surrounded by mountains on all sides. It’s a tremendously beautiful place and in some ways very similar to Jialuohu 加羅湖 which is also in Yilan. They are both great places to hike and camp and both can easily be done in a weekend.

We set off on Saturday morning and took the number 9 towards Yilan. It’s a great road to drive on, especially since most of the Taipei to Yilan traffic now goes through the Xueshan tunnel. And the views of the Yilan plain towards the end of the road are spectacular (weather permitting!).

At long last, after a busy month for all of us, we’ve finally been able to sit down and put the finishing touches to our final video! The last stage of voting begins on the 1st of October and runs until the end of that month. After that it’ll be a tense wait until the 15th of November, when the winners of the million dollar prize will be announced.

Hopefully by putting this together, we’ve been able to inspire more people to get out there and enjoy the best parts of Taiwan, it’s moutains, rivers and jungles. And we’d all like to thank everyone for their continuing support especially all the people who helped us out all the way on the trip.

Cheers! And enjoy!
