    Nostalgic hike brings back memories as Central Cross-Mountain Highway turns 60 (2020/06/29)

    Do you remember when the Central Cross-Island Highway opened to the public? If you do, perhaps you were one of the many National Youth Corps members who visited the route on a hiking trip with your classmates. With its spectacular views of Taroko National Park, it's one of the most beautiful areas in Taiwan. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the China Youth Corps organized a special hike down the highway, and FTV presenter Windy Duan got to join in the fun.

    The Central Cross-Island Highway was the first highway to connect Taiwan’s east and west coasts. Now known as Provincial Highway No. 8, the stunning mountain route is celebrating its 60th birthday. Windy decided to take it on by foot.

    I’m sure lots of viewers have driven the length of the Central Cross-Island Highway. But have you ever walked it? I hadn’t. But for many that’s a big memory.

    To celebrate the highway’s 60th, Windy joined the China Youth Corps on a nostalgic trek across the breadth of the country. Decades ago, many fifth and sixth grade classes hiked this route over three days, crossing from the Kuan Yun Youth hostel in Hualien, to the Swallow Grotto or Yanzikou in Taroko National Park. The 40-odd kilometer route passes some of Taiwan’s most fantastic beauty spots, and hosted many China Youth Corps excursions.

    Those trips would of course feature dancing in the evenings – definitely a highlight for lots of kids.

    After you’ve walked it, it feels like you’ve walked through 60 years. It’s so moving.

    Windy says there’s something special about walking the route with your own two feet. The highway has a special place in Taiwan’s history, but an even dearer place in many people’s hearts.
