Day 76 – Luye to Luo Shan

Full on day and the boys are still up playing BeyBlades. 60kms of cycling with 600m of climbing and that doesn’t count the side trips down into river gorges, swimming at waterfalls or hikes up mountains. 

The cycling day started with a 20kms bike path that ran along the river. The river is to the right of the die in the below picture. 

Most of the time the bike path is on top of the dIke. 

We decided to investigate the river bed.

And hop in the water. 

It was like the first day cycling in Taiwan. I couldn’t stop taking pictures. The scenery was so special and made all the more spectacular by the storm clouds. 

There is a waterfall close to our camp ground (our first official campsite, but we are the only campers), so the boys and I decided to check it out. 

We went for a swim in a rock pool below the waterfall to cool down after a 3km climb.

This is as close as we got to the waterfall. We tried rock hopping, but it was slow going and we were running out of daylight. 

There were wooden stairs, but they had fallen into disrepair and had wood rot.

There was a trail on the other side of the waterfall, but after going up 500m it still wasn’t getting any closer, so we gave up due to the lack of light and headed back down the hill.
