The Gash is an enormous crag located close by the village of Song Lin 松林, which lies on the road between Bamboo Temple 筇竹寺 and Fu Min 富民 and can be reached on the C63 bus. Be careful as there are 2 different C63 buses, who knows why they have the same code, as they go to different places??? The C63 that you want to take departs from the bottom (about 40m from the railway tracks) of Hong Shan Dong Lu 红山东路 at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm and returns on a similar schedule, taking between 1 and 1.5 hours. You could also catch the bus at Hei Lin Pu 黑林铺, but then make sure it is the correct C63…… Once you have reached Song Lin village 松林 (bus terminates here) you must take a right turn up the hill and walk for about 2km, past a brick factory and then upwards towards the crag. There is a left turn onto a dirt road, off the main tarred road that you are walking along, which leads all the way up to the crag. If you miss the turn onto the dirt road you will wind down and right into the valley and village below the crag. The crag is visible from the road and so finding your way should not be too difficult.
