about Alishan - Giant Forest


Perhaps you have heard of the famous Alishan and its high-mountain teas, but now you want to know what makes this place so popular. A trip to Alishan is all about the beauty of nature and the plentiful gifts it bestows. After a winding trip up through the lush mountainside, you will reach Fenqihu, a quaint village stop on the Alishan Forest Railway that was once an important transit point for the logging industry. A traditional railway bento box for lunch, crisp mist hugging the trees, and the sound of the mountain silence. This is Alishan.

Wonder in amazement at the astonishingly tall thousand year old trees of Alishan National Scenic Area and then witness the serenity of the open skies as you stand above a sea of clouds on the mountain summit. And as the day comes to a close, a trip to the tea plantations for a taste of exquisite oolong and green teas will be the perfect accompaniment to a beautiful sunset.
