For quite some time I’ve had this trail on my to-do list. But because of certain logistical issues, I’ve made it a low priority. That all changed after a message from a friend about a trip he was organizing.

Last year I found out about the Liugui Security Path – 六龜警備道, and I’ve been wanting to hike it ever since. At over 53 kilometers in total distance it’s said to take 6~8 days to complete. I only had two days, so my plan was to hike the portion from Tengzhih to its end near Maolin village.

Last year’s post about getting stuck in the mountains during a thunderstorm brought to mind the time I was stuck deep in the mountains on a riverbed while it was raining. I’d like to follow up with that story, which may have been even more dangerous.

A couple weeks back I hiked BaCengBaMoShan 巴層巴墨山 and really enjoyed the area, especially the watermelon river. While researching that hike I learned of WaiMaLiBaShan 外麻里巴山.

Every year I have a bunch of pictures that I rarely look at. I decided that this year I wanted to look through them all, choose the most interesting and those that have meaning to me, and drop them in a post. But that sounded boring. Who’s really going to look through them? Not even me. So a short video seemed a lot better. Maybe I’ll get a couple views now.  😆

At the top of a massive landslide you’ll find DaWuCang 大武藏山. It’s not a particularly popular peak by any means; there isn’t even a marker for it. Most people just pass it on their way to other prominent peaks. But last week I made it my main objective.

XinZhiShan 新置山 is a small mountain that sits directly behind Laiyi 來義 village in Pingtung. I’ve driven by it countless times and have always wanted to hike to its modest 619 meter peak. The end of last January, I decided to give it a try.
