At Alishan National Forest Recreation Area you, can hike in the scenic mountain surroundings, and take in nationally renowned views, enhanced by the area's unique climate. Covering an area of 1,400 ha (3,459 ac), Alishan rests 2,200 m (7,217 ft) above sea level and has a climate that stays fairly constant all year round, with an average temperature of 10.6 C (51 F) and a humid, cloudy atmosphere. A draw for those looking to escape the heat of the summer, this temperate weather also allows for some picturesque photo opportunities, observing seas of clouds and distinct Alishan sunrises.

The village harbors souvenir shops and indigenous dishes to sample, and nature-lovers can take strolls into the wild, with a 4 km (2.4 mi) trail dedicated to bird-watching. The weather can get very cool year-round, so be sure to bring along something warm to wear no matter when you visit.

  • We stayed overnight at the Alishan tourist in the area so there is no train, antique cherry blossom gardens. Magnolia gardens, pool, two brothers Very cold weather provides excellent all evening and morning. Well worth the trip up the mountain for nearly 3 hours.
