臉書上一名許姓山友(許武祥)和吳昶志山友,從九月四日至九月二十日,十七天完成這趟中央山脈大縱走,平均每天行走逾11個小時(每日平均19公里)。負重控制在6公斤內,四天補給一次,總共補給了四次才完成這次的縱走。許姓山友在也分享他的體重,縱走前約76公斤,完登後體重竟掉到66.9公斤。

In a recent Facebook post,  mountaineer Wu-Hsiang Hsu wrote that he set off on Sept. 4 with his friend Dylan and walked more than 11 hours on average to complete 19 km per day. It is noteworthy that they tried to keep their loaded hiking packs weight at 6 kg and obtained their supplies four times during their journey. Hsu had a dramatic weight loss from 76 kg to 66.9 kg after he completed the whole route.

中央山脈大縱走路線則是由北一段起點南湖大山勝光登山口,至最後一座百岳卑南主山後,從高雄藤枝森林遊樂區出來。途中經過「死亡稜線」和無數斷崖,是一條非常具有挑戰性的登山路線。

The northern head of the central range trail starts from the hiking gate of Nanhu Mountain and ends at Tengjhih National Forest Recreation Area in southern Kaohsiung. The trail features the Mt. Jhongyangjian dead crest and many cliffs, marking itself one of the most challenging trails in Taiwan.
