Stephanie spent most of her life in a small town near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After traveling through Europe during University, she fell in love with the excitement of travel, and with the challenge of living in a new country. An interest in Chinese culture and language led Stephanie to her current home in Taipei, Taiwan, which she uses as a base for travels throughout Taiwan and the rest of Asia. In addition to writing for My Several Worlds, Stephanie writes about her travels and adventures on her website, http://www.thewanderingdragon.com. When she’s not busy writing, Stephanie spends her time playing music, and planning her next adventure.

    Great photos and a terrific read, Stephanie. I love that you’re doing all of these incredible hikes in Taiwan. I don’t go on hikes very often, but you’ve certainly inspired me to get a move on!

    Great views from those peaks! Although I was hoping there would be a throne to sit on at the top lol…

    I’ve done Huangdidian myself and I enjoyed the hike. Yet it is not one of my favourite hiking experiences in Taiwan. Some of the hikes which have left really deep impression on me are: Chahushan/Banpingshan in Jinguashi (in November – this is definitely THE hike to do in November), the Jiajiuliao trail (Sanxia to Wulai), Hsiaotzishan (Pingxi), the Sandiaoling Waterfall trail, and Shisunjian/Shulungjian (Pingxi).
