Essential Endemic Tour

Tour Information

As Dasyueshan is the best birding sites for endemic birds in Taiwan, it is the only and the best place we can visit in Taiwan. No matter you have one weekend or only a short window before or after a business meeting, we can find some good endemic species for you.

This itinerary is design for birders who has at least 1 day 1 night or longer. We can meet one day ahead in Taichung downtown, therefore we would have a full day. If you only have one day, please check our 1 Day City Tour Package.

How to meet in the first day

In this case, we can meet you in the airport, Taipei city or Taichung city in the first day in the afternoon. If we still have time, we can do some birding on the way to Dongshih township, this would be counted as 2/3 day. For the budget-limited clients, we can meet in the early morning in Taichung to save that.

How to drop off in the last day

In the last day, it would be counted as another 2/3 day as long as we don’t use any hotel, but we have to drop you off anywhere (Taichung HSR is recommended) by 1900, otherwise you have to pay extra money to compensate the cost of car rental and the accommodation of the guide.
