A Ride to Luchang 鹿場 A Village in the Clouds, Nanzhuang, Miaoli, Taiwan

Luchang 鹿場 is translated as “Deer Field”. A high-altitude village that sits atop a 916-meter above-sea-level mountain. It is located in the mountainous and stunning  Nanzhuang, Miaoli, here in Taiwan. A haven for Cyclists, Mountain Hikers, Travelers, Adventurers and Nature Lovers. Cycling up to this place reminds me again of the movie, “Warriors of the Rainbow” / “Seediq Bale”. A Taiwanese movie that’s based on true historical events. Check out my RELIVE ride. Perhaps, this spot was once, one of their hunting grounds, hence the name “Deer Field”. I’m talking about the Atayal 泰雅 people to be specific, a certain group of Taiwan Aborigines here in Miaoli. Aborigines have been here thousands of years before the arrival of Han Chinese people. Guess what? They’re actually related to Filipinos and to other numerous  Austronesian people like the Malays, Indonesians, Maoris(Hawaii & New Zealand), etc.  To Filipinos, our closest genetic relative are the Amis People of Taiwan.…

The Yongheshan Loop 永和山水庫, Sanwan Township, Taiwan

Check out my RELIVE! ride. Yongheshan is roughly translated as”Mountain with a wing ” or, “Wing Mountain”. We, as Filipinos, simply call it “Sanwan”, because it sounds like the famous name of a Saint/City (San Juan) in the Philippines. Sanwan is translated in English as “Three Bay”. It’s a bit mountainous and it’s part of Miaoli. The Yongheshan loop is in fact, a bit intimidating to accomplish for the uninitiated. This Mountain serves as the training ground for cyclists. Both rookies and veterans that are just nearby, frequent this place. Some folks come here to hike or to observe nature. If you’re fond of viewing Sakura flowers, then try to visit them while they bloom during winter. White(rare) and pink varieties can be found in here. I’m writing this blog to serve as a guide for those who are not yet familiar with “The Yongheshan…
