Hey hiking friends,

Anusha here.

This week is about my hike to Mt. Xinan, Shishan Xiu Lake, and Shishan in southern Taiwan, Kaohsiung.

This is a hike with:

  • Camping by the stunning Shishan Xiu Lake, aka Xinan Ghost Lake (but it's not haunted).

  • Epic views of Jade Mountain, Mt. Beidawu, and other 100 Peaks in Taiwan.

  • Beautiful forest and wildflowers.

  • Steep slopes, especially for those who are looking for challenges.

I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoy this hike. This trail is also part of the Central Mountain Range South Section 1, which takes at least one week to finish.

Take care, and cheers!
