The “Leave No Trace” program originated in the United States, and has been adopted by Taiwan’s Forestry Bureau. We strictly follow the Leave No Trace program, as we strongly believe in the importance of the seven major principles. The aim is to make people aware of our collective responsibility to take care of our natural environment through the minimizing of harmful behaviors, helping everyone have a better mountain experience.
“To sustain healthy, vibrant natural lands for all people to enjoy, now and into the future.”
The Leave No Trace Seven Principles:
- Plan Ahead and Prepare
- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
- Dispose of Waste Properly
- Leave What You Find
- Minimize Campfire Impacts
- Respect Wildlife
- Be Considerate of Other Visitors
