The Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade Torch Relay has began its journey through the host country as it heads to the event starting on August 19.
The domestic leg of the Relay will see the flame visit all of the country's 22 cities and counties.
One of the first stops in the country was to the summit of Mount Jade, which at 3,952 metres above sea level is the highest point of Chinese Taipei.
It has also travelled through Penghu so far.
“As the torch travels throughout Chinese Taipei, it is an opportunity for the country’s residents to be a part of the 2017 Summer Universiade,” said Oleg Matytsin, the International University Sports Federation President.
“This event is the biggest that Taipei has ever staged, and second only to the Olympic Games in terms of world sport.
"It is my hope that, through the Torch Relay, residents will feel connected to this great event.
“I am now looking forward to arriving in Chinese Taipei for the finale of the Torch Relay and the beginning of the Universiade."
The torch will now go on to Kinmen and Lianjiang before visiting the other 19 cities to complete the tour.
The flame is set to burn until August 30, the date of the Universiade's Closing Ceremony at the Taipei Stadium in Taiwan.
Following the opening leg in Turin, the flame has also been to Napoli, the Italian host of the 2019 Summer Universiade.
It has also visited Thai capital Bangkok, host of the 2007 Summer Universiade, and South Korea’s Daegu, where the 2003 edition was staged, before making its way to Taipei.
The 2017 Summer Universiade will be the largest international sports showpiece that the country has ever staged.
It will feature 21 sports and be held in venues across Taipei, Keelung, New Taipei, Taoyuan and Hsinchu.
