Please note that the staff members of Xiangshan / Puli Visitor Centers will examine the post to see if everything is in place. The prizes will be given on a first come, first served basis, at a limited number. Each Facebook account is entitled to just one prize.
Sun Moon Lake route:
30km-long, rather hilly especially from Jioulongkou to Yunping. We suggest the cyclist park his or her car (for free) at Xiangshan Visitor Center Parking Lot, and start the journey from there (clockwise). The cyclist is requested to take one photo respectively at Longfeng Temple, Wenwu Temple, and Xuanzhang Temple, with his or her bicycle in the photo. The photos must clearly show what the locations are.
