Description

Enjoy a gondola ride and admire the beautiful scenery of the Maokong mountains before visiting the lush, green landscapes of Bagua tea plantations and the fertile backdrop of Thousand Island Lake nestled in the upper reaches of the Feicui Reservoir on this full-day tea culture trip.

Begin your day trip with a visit to Bagua Tea Plantation, one of the largest and most photographed tea plantations in Taiwan. Marvel at the grandeur of emerald green tea gardens amid fresh mountain air. Later, stroll through the rows of tea plants and have the chance to pick tea leaves during the harvesting season, all set against the backdrop of the majestic Qiando Lake (Thousand Island Lake), a man-made lake noted for its crystal water, peculiar-looking caves, and verdurous mountains.

Afterwards, indulge in a cup of Taiwanese tea within the cozy atmosphere of an old tea house and learn the precise technique of steeping the perfect pot of tea from an expert. Wrap up your day by riding on a gondola and be swept away by the spectacular surroundings of the Maokong mountains. As you slowly journey your way to the highest peak, take in the incredible view of the high mountains, forested valleys and sightings of ancient Daoist temples.

The 2 best highlights of this experience: the traditional tea ceremony class; and the stunning view (I htink it was 1000 island lake??) we stopped on the side of the road to take in. The tour was on time and we did many things. The guide and driver were excellent. The lunch was sub-par but perhaps if I had chosen other items on the menu it would have been better.

Our tour guide, Tai, was extremely knowledgable and helpful in ensuring our needs were met. He spoke English extremely well and because my girlfriend and I were the only clients that day, we pretty much decided how the tour went. This meant that if my feet were too tired from other parts of my vacation then we will do less hiking. If I read a great place for pineapple cake, we took the time to research it and if it was close by, we went and picked some up. It was worth it to just have our questions answered by a person who lives here.
