On Saturday, We went to Galaxy Cave trail, we saw the beautiful Galaxy Cave, we wash hand the spring water, the cool spring water is quite different to regular running water, we receive lots of beautiful gifts from nature, we shouldn’t destroy them.

Maokong uphill trails, climbing trails
12/19 Teng Fu, Cheng Lin & Yu Hsuan

Teng Fu experience
On Saturday when we came Maokong Crossing trail, this trail is uphill, along the road is only one pavilion for rest, it’s very hard to get up, then downhill when we are on the way back which is much easier ,it tells if no good leg muscles, it’s unable to climb.

Yu Hsuan Reviews
On Saturday, we climb Maokong uphill trail, the way is to keep uphill, of course, it is to keep the downhill on return, it’s very tire. We also went to Uphill trail which in opposite of MingDeGong temple, the pavilion is suitable for overlooking WenShan district, because you can see Taipei 101, Dai DENG FU invited us come here to celebrate on the New Year eve!

Cheng Lin experience
On holidays, our team went and climbed the Maokong Uphill and Zhanghu trail, the scenery here is very nice, a lot of the cosmos. To climb the Galaxy hole crossing hill, I think my classmate is right, it really is better to climb the Maokong as easier, all uphill along the road, and only a pavilion, still feel a little bit tire, this trail is really with higher challenge. There are many facilities on Zhanghu trails, like the musical instruments which is very romantic.
