Misty afternoon on Bamboo Mountain March 28, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Flora/Plants, Other Countries, Taiwan.
If you have awakened one early morning before the sun peeks over the horizon, you may just experience a fairyland type of mist that embraces the ground and shifts ever so slowly from one corner of your eye to the other.
Over at the peak of Bamboo Mountain, about an hour’s drive from Taipei, is a coffeehouse that is no stranger to the mist that comes and goes the entire day.
At about 2,500 metres above sea level, the temperature hovers around 50 degrees Fahrenheit. When you overlook the land below from the verandah of the double-storey coffeehouse, it gives you a surrealistic impression of what Mother Nature has hidden from a lot of people’s view.
There’s only one thing you can do when you are there, with the mist swirling around you – enjoy!
