Taiwan's Interior Mountains

click on photo (taken from "Rock")

Taiwan is a mountainous island, the island has been rated the world second most highest mountains after Himalayas. They have atleast a dozen mountains 3000 meters high (see list below). Most of the mountains are very steep and jagged which make climbing difficult but downhill MTB is a paradise.....
To find a good blogger on Taiwan's Interior mountains is not an easy task unless you know Chinese. For me I have the same problem but after searching for sometime I came across this wonderful blog.
Today's featured blogger "Rock", who is also a MTB rider will take you on his quest into the interior of central Taiwan's mountain by hiking. His blog photos are rich in color and will show you the toughest challenge that one can take. The blog is in Chinese but the pictures will tell a thousand words. Click on the photo to access to his blog, beware the site will take time to download.
