GiGi Wu, a Taiwanese woman, whom she fondly addressed herself as the “Bikini Climber”, has shockingly died after freezing to death following a fall. She was leaving on a 25-day hike when she floundered 65 feet down a ravine in Central Taiwan’s Yushan Mountain.
Wu is quite famous on social media and has a massive following for documenting her travels, sharing photos of herself on mountaintops in bikinis.
Gigi Wu usually wore hiking clothes to scale the mountains, only changing into a bikini once she reached the top.
In an interview with local channel FTV last year, she said she had scaled more than 100 peaks in four years.
“I put on a bikini in each one of the 100 mountains. I only have around 97 bikinis so I accidentally repeated some,” she said.
When asked why she did it, she replied: “It just looks so beautiful, what’s not to like?”
