I am fortunate enough to live in a place where the nearest hiking spot is a mere 20 minute bus ride away.
Dakeng Forest Recreation Area (Taichung, Taiwan) is a place of spectacular beauty.
With 10 different trails to choose from there is endless exploring to be done, and ample photo opportunities too…
I have only ventured up and down trail 9 and 10 so far, the easiest of the lot (gotta start slow). I plan to tackle all of them this year though, and my goal is to get out into nature at least once a month.
It makes such a refreshing change from the bustling and often smoggy city. Not to mention the exercise is great for my mind and body.
The fresh air and stunning sights are healing in themselves.
