Hiking to Forget Your Worries

in hike •  2 months ago

On my recent hike over the weekend I went to an really enchanting place in central Taiwan, somewhere that I've been wanting to go for ages. There isn't an official English name for it but it roughly translates to Forget Your Worries Forrest. Here's glimpse of it.

I started off my hike at 1650m above sea level, literally in the clouds. Then I ascend up the mountain, nearly crawling on tree roots, still damp from the morning dew. A bit further on I passed by some tea plantations. Taiwan produces some of the best tea in the world, particularly when it is grown at this altitude and above. I come across a rare spieces of local bird, and finally arrive at this serene part of the forest. The tranquility here really makes one forget about all their worries. I hope you enjoy my video.

Beautiful nature in Taiwan! Didn't know it was so green! Great video! Perfect place to forget any worries! 🤩


Taiwan is a mountainous country and have lots of mountains higher than 3000m so the locals love hiking. Still learning to use my Go Pro, I actually thought I took a lot more videos in the forest, but turned out I didn't switch on record properly until I finished recording!!!!


Really? I didn't know that!

I'm sorry to hear that! Well, but you learned and it won't happen to you anymore! It was still a great video and you got your go pro just a couple of days ago!

Taiwan is stunning, its in my wish list to visit. Such a beautiful island!


Philippines ain't bad either!!

Wow!! Rough translation or not, if you can't forget your worries, there, you can't anywhere! Simply stunning :)

Thank you for sharing this @livinguktaiwan :)


Luckily we got there quite late in the afternoon so wasn't packed with people and we were able to enjoy the quietness and listen to the birds chirping away. Apparrently it gets very busy during the day.
