A short hike to Mt. Qixing ends perfectly! Everyone loves the hiking event and wants to join it every year

 Don’t feel sad for the make-up day. A short hike to Mt. Qixing in 2023 ends perfectly today (September 24). 700 lucky people joined the event and enjoyed the happiest weekend in nature. People can take any trail to the top. They hiked from 7:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., climbed to the summit, and received a hat exclusive to the event. Hikers of all ages enjoyed the exciting event and received great souvenirs. The event was unforgettable and they want to join the event every year!

 The Geotechnical Engineering Office, Public Works Department, Taipei City Government stated that a short hike to Mt. Qixing has become one of the most popular hiking events. More and more people sign up for it every year. Over 12 thousand hikers joined the event, hitting a record high. It is expected that over 15 thousand hikers will join us next year. We designed a souvenir cap this year to make the event special. Combined with the features of Mt. Qixing and Taipei Grand Trail, the cap is very popular. Hikers receive this cap when reaching the top. The cap will travel with hikers through nature and will stay deep in their heart.

 Lots of people brought their family and friends to this event. Some hikers have acquired the Taipei Grand Trail Completion Certificate every year. Rookie hikers are less experienced in hiking but they hang in there and climb to the top step by step because the event was exciting. While climbing to the top, hikers can feel a sense of achievement they never felt before and how happy it was to take a short hike to Mt. Qixing!

 Geotechnical Engineering Office pointed out that taking a short hike to Mt. Qixing is an important hiking event in Taipei, which will be the first city in Taiwan that has an iconic hiking event. When tourists from other countries, and other counties and cities in Taiwan visit Taipei, Mt. Qixing, the tallest mountain in Taipei, will come in their mind. This event shows that Taipei is a lively city, leads the hiking trend in Taiwan, and encourages more people to embrace mountains and forests in nature.
