Shihding Huangdidian Hiking Trail
The area
Neighborhood: Shenkeng / Shiding / Pinglin District
Tea fields planted in steps, with a mountain of verdant tea gardens, are a characteristic and unique sight of Pinglin. The Pinglin Tea Museum Periodically hosts various tea-related theme displays alongside exhibitions, experience showrooms, tea art classrooms and other spaces for introduction of the tea industry with its domestic and foreign culture to tourists. Pinglin Old Street preserved the most down to earth appearance of its hundred year history, including its old stone houses and traditional mom and pop stores. The well known Shenkeng Old Street is famous not only for stinky tofu delicacy but also “four Shenkang specialties”, green bamboo shoots, black pig pork, white tofu, and pouchong tea, planting the delectable image of Shenkang Old Street deep in one's mind. The unique “stilt houses” architecture can only be seen in Shiding, developed by locals to solve the problem of limited spacings. Well known souvenirs blend local features into handmade noodles, combining tea fragrance into noodles and adding new flavors to a traditional taste.

This place was a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Taipei.

The trail itself is a subway, bus, hike out from the city, but so worth it.

It's a challenging trail - lots of steps, some steep ledges, etc., but the views, challenge, and exhilaration make it worth it.

We went on a weekday during China's national week, so I was scared it would be overrun with Mainland tourists. To our surprise and luck, the trail was entirely empty.
