Lets continue with wonderful taiwanese mountains. Sometimes the beauty looks totally unnatural :). Perhaps no one needs more recommendations for visiting Taiwan. It does not matter, if you will visit Taroko national park or some other one, beautiful nature can be found in each of them. Pokračování z taiwanských hor. Některá místa vypadají opravdu kýčovitě, ale je to asi ta nejlepší pozvánka a motivace pro Vás vycestovat také na Taiwan a vidět tu krásnou přírodu

Back to heaven. I am happy to share next batch of photos from incredible taiwanese moutains. Amazing twisted trunks of mountain junipers, ancient rhododendrons, cloudy peaks…. No more words needed, enjoy! Zpátky do taiwanských hor! Představuji další sérii fotek z překrásných taiwanských vrcholků.

Taiwan is the worlds fourht-highest island, with the highest point at Jade mountain at 3952 meters. Almost 70% of island is covered by mountains, what an amazing island! Finally we spent 5 days on trek in Taroko national park and it must be said that it was a wonderful time. It was 5 days of hiking in unspoiled nature, wild forests full of ancient trees.

Hwa Fong – Conifers – part 4

See this amazing gallery of conifer bonsai trees from Hwa Fong exhibition. Really exceptional juniper and pine trees. What we like about these trees is the taiwanese styling, which is very different from the japanese style, but it looks much more natural and final result is very close to real junipers in nature.

Hwa Fong – Shohin bonsai stands – part 2

The exhibition Hwa Fong was interesting by presenting large trees or shohin size trees, almost no middle size. Exactly how we like it :). I would like to share few shots of shohin stands.
