Explore this tropical region in an adventure that will take you on a loop around the island, starting and finishing in the vibrant capital of Taipei. You will ride southwest through the Yushan National Park, passing by the foothills of Mont YuShan (Jade Mountain), Taiwan’s highest mountain standing at 3.952m asl. After reaching the southern parts of Taiwan you cross the mountains and follow the stunning east coast back north, before turning inlands into the Taroko National Park, taking on one of the longest climbs in the world, cycling from sea level up to 2.600m asl.
