Wish upon a lantern

Half day tour - ( a low to medium intensity activity). The tour company sends a driver/guide to picks up the passengers at hotels around Taipei city and drives them to Pinxy. At Pinxy we write our wishes on the sky lantern and release it in to the air - free to climb and drift away. All day long tourist send lanterns out while an active railway sends trains passing by at the locations the lanterns are being lit. We were told the sky lanterns were originally used to inform locals who were hiding in the mountains. These days the lantern lighting has become a tourist activity. It is the only legal area to send lanterns in to the sky in Taipei. After the lantern lighting activity we drive around five minutes to see a waterfall. A little bit of walking is involved crossing a bridge. If you are physically able, you are given the time to climb down to the base of the hill to get a spectacular view of the waterfall. Then we drive back into the city.

Great morning tour

Does what is says on the tin. We go to the old train tracks and write on our wishes on a lantern and then let it off. We then set off to the waterfall and suspension bridge. It's all very beautiful and although the tour starts off early you'll be thankful afterwards because tour groups crowd the place later in the morning and afternoon and you can wait a long time for the lantern etc. I met lovely people during the tour as well and spent the rest of the day with one girl. Definitely recommend this tour!
