  • Description

    EIGHT MEN OVER SIXTY -- ONE OF THEM ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE -- MADE A 25-MILE TRIP TO CONQUER 15 MOUNTAIN PEAKS IN TAIWAN. THE EXPEDITION BEGAN AT A SCENIC RESORT KNOWN AS GREEN LAKE WITH 29 SONS AND DAUGHTERS JOINING THEIR FATHERS IN LIMBERING UP EXERCISES.

    PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES ARE COMMON IN TAIWAN AND 12 DIFFERENT TYPES OF SUSPENSION BRIDGES WERE ON THE ROUTE TO THE PEAKS. THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS MADE THE TREK IN CASE OF DROP-OUTS OR INJURY, BUT THE EXERCISE WENT SMOOTHLY. THE HIKERS' ROUTE TOOK THEM TO ONE MOUNTAIN PEAK WITH AN ALTITUDE OF 3000-FEET. SOME OF THE HIKERS WORE COOLIE HATS; OTHERS CARRIED UMBRELLAS TO SHIELD THEM FROM THE SUN.

    THE TREK TOOK THE HIKERS 12 HOURS, FROM THE GREEN LAKE TO THE I-LAN RAILWAY STATION. THE HOMEWARD TRIP WAS CONSIDERABLY EASIER - THE HIKERS TRAVELLED BY TAIN. THIS IS OFFICIAL FILM.
