Woot! Discover the hidden attractions in Taiwan! Welcome to Nantou (南投) city. Nantou is located at the center of Taiwan and it is the second largest country of Taiwan surrounded with countless magnificent hills and mountainous attractions for tourists’ destination. Likewise, this city is also well-known in their oolong teas plantation as well as grape wine production.
Calling for all nature lover and traveller! Today let me bring you to one of my favourite landscape scenic in Taiwan Nantou, the Bamboo Sky Ladder (竹山天梯).
It was the day we refresh ourselves in the morning and get along our identity to meet the Taiwanese Media and Bloggers in Nantou City. Yes! This is me representing Singapore! Woohoo~
We kick-off our smooth journey from Taichung city, travelling via the premium coach and it took us about an hour to reach Nantou City. Hence, tips for traveller, it is recommended for you to rent a car or scooter while travelling in Nantou.
After a long ride, we finally reached the entrance of Ladder Scenic Area (梯子吊橋風景區)! However, this is not the full destination yet! It is the starting point leading to the Bamboo Sky Ladder. We still have another 1.5 hours of walking distance for us to reach the main landscape attraction at the peak of Bamboo Sky Ladder, right above the Taiji Canyon (太极峡谷).
From the main entrance to Taiji Canyon, you will have to climb a thousand steps of stairs, passing through the dreamy bamboo forest and take across at the earth god temple. While exploring the Bamboo Sky Ladder, you will encounter stiff and slippery stairs. Although the journey is going to be exhausted but it’s definitely a worth walking journey as you will experience the “Heavenly View” once you reached the top of destination.
Standing on the horizon sky bridge and admiring the most stunning panoramic was one of the peaceful moments in life. I am glad that this perfect scenic experiencing has overtaken the distances and times spent in this journey. For your info, the length of the sky ladder bridge is 136 meters with 208 steps and the difference of height is around 20 meters. The Bamboo Sky Ladder open daily from 7.30am to 5pm (Last ticketing at 4pm).
Wonderful place for photo shoot!
