About Eryanping Trail
Eryanping Trail is one of the popular tourist spots near Alishan. You will be amazed to see the sunrise or sunset in this area if the weather is nice. The trail passes through bamboo groves and a tea plantation area.
After a long hike at Mount Yushan, I decided to visit the Eryanping trail before heading to Sun Moon lake.

Where to stay
I searched for a homestay/inn which was near the trail and found the 53 Backpacker Inn for the budget travelers. If you prefer a much nicer homestay, you can go to 53.1 Homestay which is on the opposite side of 53 Backpacker Inn.

The host of the homestay was hospitable. They were nice and friendly. The room was neat and clean. Breakfast was good. The tea appreciation session with the host was great.

I woke up early and headed to the trail to see the sunrise. It looks like a scene in a suspense movie walking alone on this trail in the foggy and cold morning.
