I write about my travels all the time. When I write for this site I delve into my discoveries, feelings and learnings. For most, a journal is the place to hold both kinds of memories. You’ll want the details of what you did and where but at the end of a trip, it’s also nice to have a journal rich with the meaning of your travels. I found the journey to Mt Hehuan in Taiwan soul inspiring. Mountain climbing is something you have to experience for yourself, and once you have, it’s unforgettable.
Mt Hehuan means mountain of harmonious joy in Chinese. And you will totally experience this joy when you reach the top. When I was there, the weather was surprising good albeit windy. The sky was vibrantly blue, forming a stark contrast with the passing white clouds. At the top, the actual scenery is far more beautiful than a photo can depict. One should really should pay a visit to witness and enjoy the spectacular view and feel the sense of joy.
If you have not hiked Taiwan’s mountains, you have not truly visited Taiwan. Why? A whopping 70% of Taiwan consists of mountains. Only after you’ve experienced this side of Taiwan, one that is well-endowed by nature, should you think about coming home. The majesty of the mountains is a wondrous thing. It’s at moments like these that you suddenly feel so tiny and lost in the majesty of mother nature.
