Taiwan’s online celebrity mountaineer Chan Chiao-yu (詹喬愉), nicknamed “Tri Fish”, shared a photo of herself and another fellow hiker at the Qika Moutain Villa in Xueshan on Thursday.
If you take a closer look, however, you will realize that the other hiker is none other than Foxconn founder Terry Gou (郭台銘).
The photo immediately led to a heated discussion among social media users and received more than 10,000 likes in half a day, with many praising the two featured, “the strongest combination!”
詹喬愉分享與郭台銘在雪山的合照，並寫下「朝下一座高峰邁進吧！Let’s climb the next summit！」
In the photo shared by Chan, she wrote “Let’s climb the next summit!”
Hashtags such as “short-legged fish climbs the peak” and “climb the mountain without a peak” were also included in the post.
As can be seen from the photo, Chan and Gou point to something in the same direction.
The funny photo also showed Gou relaxed with his arm thrown carelessly around Chan’s shoulders, which contrasted strongly to his public image of being a big-shot CEO.
Social media users also left messages commenting, “Gou will be cover the maintenance fee for the entire mountainous areas now,” “You can often meet famous people while climbing mountains; the trick is to recognize them,” and “Wow! The two of you can represent the two leaders of Taiwan!”
It is understood that the photo was actually taken during the Labor Day holiday.
Gou and his wife, accompanied by their daughter went climbing the snow-capped mountains together.
In fact, conquering the mountain top of Xueshan had been a post-graduation goal planned by Gou’s daughter in primary school.
Afterward, Gou’s wife happily sent a message in her personal Instagram account celebrating her daughter’s success in obtaining an official certificate for finishing the difficult feat.
Currently, Chan has more than 93,000 followers on Facebook, which is quite popular among social media users. She often shares photos of herself climbing mountains and frequently interacts with fans online.
