Overview
Teapot Mountain (茶壺山) truly is a photographer’s paradise. A lush green landscape blankets the mountainside. Deep hues of blue from the ocean add an incredible background to this scenic hike. Start your trip climbing the steep steps above the historic town of Jinguashi (金瓜石) as we see more of the coastline open up. End as you look at the iconic and uncanny teapot-shaped rock outcropping. As we finish your camera will be full of gorgeous photos, and your legs burning with satisfaction.

Thanks to Dustin for a great adventure to central Taiwan’s Yuanzui Mountain! Overall, this was an amazing way to explore the views Taiwan has to offer and the beauty of the outdoors with a great group of people.

We booked TAO for a 2 day girls trip and it was absolutely fantastic! Leading up to the trip the communiciation was excellent. They really helped us figure out the best trip that would work with our time frame. They were right on time to pick us up at our airbnb and kept everything running smoothly!

I went on a Takao Gorge ON trip with 3 other girls with Ryan as the leader. Ryan communicated with us a few months out about every detail, even to the time he picked us up in Taipei city for hiking from our Airbnb. Ryan is very responsible, personable, and fun! The gorge hike was beyond our expectations. One of us was uncomfortable with heights, but Ryan guided her through her fears. To top off our love for TAO, TAO supports eco-friendly tourism and regularly cleans up the local community. I will definitely be recommending TAO to others and coming back for another hike if given the opportunity. 10/10!

We recently went on a 2D1N hike to climb the East and North Peak of Hehuanshan. Dustin was a fantastic guide and spent time before the trip Skyping us to give us an overview of the 2 days. We were picked up from our hotel in Taipei and driven the 4 hours to the mountains, stopping for lunch on the way. TAO provided our tent and other essential camping supplies that we didn’t have with us. The first day was a short 3 hour hike to the campsite and Dustin made sure that we had frequent stops as it was our first ever hike above 3000m. The campsite was a great experience and we were lucky enough to see an incredibly clear sunset and sunrise the next morning. The hikes to the two peaks on the second day were fun and we found Dustin easy to talk to as he shared his experiences of Taiwan with us. After the hikes Dustin drove us to our next hotel in Beitou, the service from TAO was outstanding throughout. Overall, it was a fantastic experience made even better by a knowledgable guide who spent a lot of time making us feel comfortable and who was easy to talk to and get on with. I’d highly recommend TAO for any of your outdoor trips in Taiwan and am looking forward to booking with them again in the future! Thanks again Dustin!

Went on a river tracing trip with Dustin and had an amazing time! Dustin is highly experienced, knowledgeable and fun. Felt we were in good hands :) River tracing was one of the best things I did while I was in Taiwan. Making your way through crystal clear waters in pristine jungles, climbing through falls, and sliding down natural water slides.
