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. Around the area, you'll also have the chance to take in the region's historic narrow gauge railway and its accompanying wooden station, the largest of its kind in the country. 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. Alishan National Forest Recreation Area is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Chiayi County Edition.

  • 步道維護得很好,也可以利用遊園巴士做點對點的接駁。在森林群木中散步,很是愜意。希望水土保持要再加強, 台灣的神木倒了不少。 
  • 雖然落雨有不便,但去到這個森林區就令人驚嘆大自然的魔力,可睇到比平時高幾倍甚至十幾倍的樹,心曠神怡。幸運地有本地導遊吳導一同遊覽,很有趣,認識更多阿里山的歷史,樹木與鐵路與阿里山人的關係。 
  • The place is not short of amazing but we were unlacky as far as the weather which was cloudy and rainy so we missed a lot of the sceanary.
