A woman whose love for mountain climbing in swimsuits led to her moniker “Bikini Hiker” has died after a fall during a hike in Taiwan, BuzzFeed News reports.
The Taiwan Times reports that 36-year-old Gigi Wu had been hiking alone for a week when she fell down a 65-foot valley on Sunday. Bad weather prevented search and rescue helicopters from reaching her three times. It wasn’t until midday on Monday that local firefighters were able to search for her in the valley. By the time authorities got to her, she was dead.

In her last post, a photo uploaded Thursday, she wrote she was “celebrating today.”
