On cloud nine

Your route through this bicycle-friendly country begins on its eastern, less touristy coast, where the mighty cliffs descend into the sea and the religious temples – which you are free to visit – soar up to the sky. You then head toward the mountains in the south, an area known for its scuba diving and coral reefs. After that, your route takes you upward – as far as 3,300 meters! In fact, in late afternoon, you will sometimes be biking above the clouds pierced here and there by mountain peaks – an unforgettable sight. And your trip ends on a high note with Taroko National Park and its breathtaking gorge, Taiwan’s most popular natural attraction, followed by a 75-km-long descent by bike! In terms of the food, the night markets are well worth a visit, and in terms of the people, the Taiwanese are cheerful and friendly. Lots of reasons to feel like you’re on cloud nine!
