Ancient track on Kinmen's Mt. Taiwu perfect for autumn hiking

Taipei, Oct. 24 (CNA) With the season turning to autumn, the government of Taiwan's outlying Kinmen County is stepping up promotion of an ancient trail on Mt. Taiwu, the highest in the county, as part of ongoing efforts to boost tourism.

Caicuo Ancient Trail (蔡厝古道), dotted with numerous granite steps, is an old trail formerly used to connect Shamei (沙美) and Shanwei (山外) villages separated by Mt. Taiwu in the eastern section of Kinmen Island, the county government said in a recent press release.

In ancient times, traders carried baskets loaded with toufu and fresh vegetables on a stick over their shoulder along the trail to sell their wares. That explains its other name Toufu Trail, said the local government.

Kinmen started promoting the Mt. Taiwu hiking tour along Toufu Ancient Trail last year, officials at Kinmen Tourism Department said.

With Caicuo Old Trail as its main feature, the tour is designed to attract hikers and ancient trail fans from Taiwan and mainland China with the chance to experience rarely seen natural and cultural landscapes in Kinmen, the officials said.

The trail has already been featured on the popular television travel program, "Made In Taiwan" on CTV, which visited Kinmen for five days in August to document it, the county said.

Former county government resident artist Tsou Chia-che (鄒佳哲) was commissioned by Kinmen County Government to paint a mural featuring Toufu Ancient Trail at Caicuo tourist center last year and returned to lead a group of reporters and hikers along the trail in early October.

On the three-hour walk from the trail entrance to the peak of Mt. Taiwu the group visited cultural spots from the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, as well as more modern attractions.

At the top of the mountain, Tsou once again sketched the beauty of the trail and a wonderful bird's eye view of Jinsha Township, the department said.
