Situated at the altitude of 3,275 meters, Wuling is the highest point in the mountain highway of Taiwan. The magnificent steppe and beautiful scenery attract bike riders in droves. Misted over by clouds and haze, surrounded by waves of mountains, this is the place where you could bring your dear bike up to the highest road and wander about in the embrace of the land. This is also ranked as one of the most romantic things by bike riders! Of course, it’s not that easy to go up Wuling for its oblique slops would require a pair of sturdy legs!

Introduction

Many people have had the fond memories of climbing trees when they were little, but to it is quite another matter to climb up on a giant tree that equals to a 38-story building. The Redwood Forest located in the north coast of California possesses of trees as old as over 2,500 years. A mature forest can be divided into 5 layers, undergrowth, forest floor, understory, canopy and emergent layer. Emergent layer is occupied with the highest trees/woods in the forest with most of their branches growing side ways, interweaving into a luxuriant leafy world. It is estimated that 60% of the presently-known species live above the emergent layer.  

▲Setting up a tree hammock is a vital skill for tree climbers.

For tree climbers, this place is a sacred ground because high up on the emergent layer, one could vividly experience the aerial view and the vivacious ecosystem in the mid air. The mammoth tree is so tall that you may even need to set up a tree hammock for the night. Night climbing on the other hand, is another challenge. If you wish to spend the night on the tree, but you can’t bring any lighting tools, you will need to rely on other sense such as hearing, touch and smell rather than sight. These senses will be provoked to the maximum, you may “feel” a flying squirrel glides through next to you or a feline gently steps on the fallen leaves somewhere under the tree. Our body can reunite and communicate with the Nature.
