Let’s go… Island Hiking + Camping down South!!! Where its warm ;)
We are heading down South for an awesome hike around an island. Avoid the insane sea of travelers during Chinese New Year and come with us over to Dayushan Island, where we will hike around the island, go camping, check out some spectacular nature, watch the sunrise, fly Chinese lanterns, visit an ancient village, the She minority people, have a bonfire party on the beach, and more!!!
Signing up for the Mudcastles trip? Let us know. This one is right after and in the same area, so it’s easy to hop on both.
