This is one of the all-time classic Taiwan hikes, and for good reason. Pingxi’s crags rise dramatically from the forest and are the perfect adventure playground for visitors from Taipei.
Pingxi is famed for is annual sky lantern festival. An enchanting spectacle where hundreds of lanterns are released into the night. They may look pretty in the photos, but the sky lanterns of Pingxi leave an unpleasant stain on the landscape around this charming railway village.
