    LiTao

    by luckymiffy Updated Mar 1, 2008

    LiTao is on the South cross-island highway. Go to Taitung from Tainan or Kaohsiung, you could choose this way, risky but worth seeing. In the small aboriginal village Litao, people set guest houses for visitors who like to go hiking. It's really a good choice for you.
    The villagers count on agriculture, for instance, cabbage and strawberry. donot expect people will be nice to tourists coz I didn't feel anything about it. I guess they still have to work hard for filling belly. However, the owner of guest house is polite. No worry about it.
    It's still suitble for drivers to come, as the traffic is a big problem for backpackers with only legs. the bus is offered and you could take it from Tiatung city. the bus goes twice a day.

    shoot in February.  the cherry bloom is nice.

    Lu Yeh High Land is now also a famous place for the hang glider. Many people fly the hang glider at the weekends here because of its steep cliff at 368 meters high and the wide flat ground under the feet.

    Hung Yeh village is a beautiful and peaceful village in the mountains. This is a aboriginal tribe. They are famous for the hot spring and the baseball teams. Even without these, we thought it was wonderful for us just to walk in this village to enjoy the moment of the peaceful life.
