This weekend we shot down to Chiayi straight after work for a fantastic 2 day excursion in the mountains near Alishan. The scenery and hiking were second to none taking in a beautiful peak (Luchushan 鹿屈山) with views of a snow-capped Yushan, an earthquake created-lake (Shuiyang Forest 水漾森林) and an enormous cave, fittingly called the thousand people cave (Qianrendong 千人洞).

Typically during the winter, northern Taiwan is cold and wet but the southern part tends to stay drier and is always warmer. So with the weather in Taipei being so terrible at Chinese New Year, the only thing we could do was head to Kaohsuing, rent scooters and see what we could find.
