Hi everyone we are the CAVA Community Taipei!!
We organize trips that are REALLY FUN, give back to the community and help the environment at the same time. Our mission as an organization is to preserve Taiwan’s wonderful natural places and care for our living, breathing planet. To do this we will hike Section 4 of Taipei Grand Trail, taking in some of Taipei’s most enchanting forest trails and spectacular views.
