Thanks for your interest in signing up for the Parkbus Taiwan service between Taichung and Aowanda National Forest in Nantou County!

Join Parkbus Taiwan for an amazing day out hiking and exploring the stunning landscapes of Aowanda National Forest. There are a total of 6 trails located inside the national forest and all are suitable for beginner and novice hikers. Three of the trails can be linked together to create a fantastic day out and one of over 10km of hiking (including out and backs). The trails vary in length, difficulty and accessibility providing visitors of all skill levels something to explore.

At around 2 hours south of Taichung, this park is no longer accessible on public transit. This makes it a perfect Parkbus Taiwan destination. 

Due to the timing of the departures for this event, passengers in Northern Taiwan (Taipei, New Taipei and Taoyuan) can also participate in this event by taking the Taiwan High Speed ​​​​​​Train service and arriving at Taichung High Speed ​​​​​​Station before 8am. 

Parkbus Taiwan will offer direct, reservable and same-day return bus service from Taichung.
