These seven visitors carried out different journeys in the East Rift Valley according to their various interests and preferences. Two of these visitors went hiking in the mountains and forests to listen to the friendly stories of local aborigines and Formosan Black Bears. Three of them rode electric assistive bicycles across the junction of the Eurasian Plate and the Philippine Sea Plate to feel the shock of the creation of the earth. The other two visitors explored rural life to experience the hard work of farmers and taste the abundant commodities from the East Rift Valley. Finally, they stepped into the tribe together and experienced the wisdom of local indigenous life.
At the end of their journeys, they experienced the essential spirit that the locals want to transmit, which includes the lessons that the mountains and ocean are always there, human beings interact and live with the natural environment, and the sincerest interactions are among people.
