[edit] River Tracing L

**You need to register for this daytrip option before July 28th 10:00 UTC**

River tracing is a mix of hiking and bouldering, but in a river bed. It's a pretty wet activity and a nice way to cool down in the hot and humid taiwanese weather. This activity takes place on the Meihua river (梅花溪).

These are the things you should bring with you:

  • A set of clothes you don't mind getting wet in
  • A set of dry clothes
  • A towel

The guides will provide you with helmets, a life jacket and non-slip shoes.

All valuables and electronics should stay at the venue. You will be jumping from rocks to rocks inside a river. You will be able to leave some stuff in the bus, but we cannot guarantee their integrity.

Here is the plan for the daytrip:

  • 7:45 - Departure by bus from the venue
  • 8:30 - Arrival at the river
  • 9:00 - Arrival to the upstream location
  • 9:00 to 12:00 - River tracing
  • 12:00 - Lunch
  • 12:00 to 15:30 - River tracing
  • 15:30 - Return to the parking lot
  • 16:30 - Return to the venue

The lunch offered will be noodles. Please note on the registration page your dietary restrictions.

This activity is physically taxing. You will be climbing, hiking in a river bed and jumping for an extended period of time. Please make sure that this is the kind of activity that suits your physical limitations. You must be older than 10 years old to participate in this activity for insurance reasons.

This activity is potentially dangerous. You will have to sign a waiver for the river tracing company insurance saying they are not responsible if you get hurt.
