The more local, the more international! Joint effort by public and private sectors to make "Danlan" an international brand
In October 2023, the Tourism Administration, MOTC and the Taiwan Thousand Miles Trail Association once again extended the "Memorandum of Cooperation on Public-Private Partnership for the International Promotion of Danlan National Greenway" first signed on September 8, 2020. As a result, the two sectors continue to jointly promote Danlan National Greenway, combining the cultural characteristics of northern Taiwan with the spirit of environmental friendliness. It is hoped that with the protection and support of people in Taiwan, the Greenway will become an important attraction driving the recovery of Taiwan’s green tourism in the post-epidemic era.
The Danlan century old long-distance trail is one of three national greenways approved by the Executive Yuan as a promotion priority in 2018. Since being initiated by the Taiwan Thousand Miles Trail Association in 2015, Taiwan Trail Day has been held every year since 2016, when the heads of local county and city governments and relevant central ministries and councils gather together and go hiking. Currently,tThe Danlan Platform meeting has been held every three months or 28 times in total, bringing together public and private parties, who work to build and promote the trail, which has become the first long-distance pilgrimage trail in northern Taiwan. It attracts people from all over the country and is the best hiking route in Northern Taiwan, combining concepts such as paying tribute to the mountains, mountain experiences, environmental education, cultural excursions, hiking sightseeing, and eco-tourism.
