MODERATE HIKES IN TAICHUNG COUNTY

Walks listed with the most recent at the top. There might be some overlap between moderate and challenging hikes.

MOUNT DONGMAO (東卯山)


The fifth highest of the Guguan Seven Heroes, Mount Dongmao is a thoroughly enjoyable day hike in Taichung’s Heping District. Despite the trail’s relative ease, it doesn’t hold back on the views.

MOUNT MALUN (馬崙山)

At 2305m high, Mount Malun is the second highest among Guguan’s Seven Heroes, but despite its lofty nature, it’s not a difficult climb. The long trail climbs gently (well almost gently), through different types of forest landscape and past the remains of an old logging village.

MOUNT WU WO WEI (屋我尾山)


At 1796m above sea level Mount Wu Wo Wei is the third highest of the Guguan Seven Heroes. There are two routes to the peak, and since this post details the harder of the two, you can expect to have the peaceful forest to yourself for most of the walk.

MOUNT POJINJIA (波津加山)

View on the climb up to Pojinjia The fourth highest of the Guguan Seven Heroes, Mount Pojinjia is a steep, but straightforward climb that rewards all of your hard work with the occasional spectacular view over distant cloud-capped peaks.


This is currently an unpaid side passion project and I will continue doing it just for the love of it, but of course if you like what I do and feel inclined to chip in a few dollars for transport and time then I would appreciate it immensely. You can find me on either Ko-fi or Buy Me a Coffee.
