Product Number: PBTW025-0525
From Taipei

☀️☀️☀️ Trail Rating: Hard ☀️☀️☀️

Welcome to nature. There is no concrete jungle here. Only the lush forests and rugged mountains make up the landscapes of this remote corner of Hsinchu County. Join Parkbus Taiwan as we set out to hike the famous Syakora Historic Trail, one of Taiwan's famous National Trails.

Trip Overview

Guests will hike 24km along the entire famed Syakora Historic Trail, an ancient communal road for the local Atayal indigenous tribe. Built by hand during the Qing Dynasty by the local Atayal people, this trail was then modified as a guarded road during the Japanese Occupation Period. In addition to the fascinating historical significance of the ancient trail, the scenery along the way is even more beautiful. Surrounded by towering trees and a bamboo forest, this trail features suspension bridges, scenic viewpoints, and rich ecology.

Our guest and guide will spend almost the entire day hiking the famous Syakora Historic Trail. The Syakora Historic Trail straddles Jianshi Township and Wufeng Township in Hsinchu County. This is a bucket list hiking experience among many hikers in Taiwan. Along the way, hikers will experience a trail rich in historical and cultural significance, as well as the stunning scenery of the surrounding mountains and forests. 

From the pick-up location at Taipei Main Station, guests will take private transportation to the trailhead of Syakora Historic Trail. Starting off from Wufeng Township, guests will hike as a group and pass through unique historical sites and abandoned buildings from a bygone era. Guests will cross over suspension bridges in the midst of beautiful and dense forested valleys. The Syakora Historic Trail, meaning "black heart stone" in the Atayal language, has been designated a National Trail in Taiwan and is a remote thru-hike.

Guests are expected to prepare their own breakfast, lunch, and snacks on the trail. Guests will also be expected to bring sufficient water for the day, as there are no water sources available along the Syakora Historic Trail. 

Upon completing the trail, our private transportation will pick up guests and transfer the group back to Taipei Main Station.
