Where I stayed
High Speed Train to Taipei
Tough 7 hours hike across the sand dunes of Gangzai via Nanren to Jialesui. The walk on the sand dunes is not an easy one and takes time ( alternatively you can walk or drive along the river delta ( sand dunes ) on a road. First half of the trail from Nanren is pretty easy on small stones on a visible kind of trail. In this way you walk until an abandoned army station. From there it is tough going - no more visible trail, only on big stones, small stones and rocks and across driftwood logs in the thousands. About 400m before you reach the end of the trail and the Coastal Park you will see a white building belonging to the coast guard. A small road leads to the station and can be used by bikers and hikers who do not want to climb the rocks on the final stretch. The road also leads to Jialeshuei.
