Let’s trekking up Bitou Jiao hill!
After getting off the bus, you guys walk a little ahead and turn to the left hand side and you will see a small elementary school, where we had the picture below, this is also the road leading to the top hill.
This is the Bitou Elementary School. It should be the most beautiful school in Taiwan, I think :D, its view right to the sea.
It takes about half an hour to 45 minutes to reach the peak, but the higher up, the wider the view. This road was tiled, with clean and solid handrails.
Going a little further, the road was divided into two recesses, one reclining into the observatory, one going up to the lighthouse. Unluckily for us at that time, the road to the lighthouse is temporarily closed because of the stone landslide, so we went the road continue to the observation deck.
In addition, there is a road leading down to the beach near the sea, here some indigenous people often fishing.
Continue to walk in the small coastal road. This road is only about 2km long. The view here is so amazing. If you guys have a fly-camera, this place is total with you.
The way up the highest point of this mountain.
..then here it is.
From here, we can look down at the fishing village of Bitou fishing port.
Reaching the top hill is seemly you guys finish this Bitou Jiao’s journey, you guys might take a rest before walking down the hill. Hope you guys enjoy trekking Bitou Jiao and hope this review useful for you all.
