Fa Peng Teng (花瓶頂)


31 Jan 2010


Trip Description

This route is not difficult at all but it is not frequently visited by hikers. Therefore, the down-hill portion of the path is a little bit confusing. You don't need to climb tall mountain, you can still enjoy a excellent sea view if the weather is fine. For experienced hikers, it is a leisure half-day trip.
