  • Don't call yourself visited Taiwan if you have not visited here. This place is cool and fresh in air, good hiking paths and camping ground! Sure, it's a bit hard to approach here, but hey, don't you wanna go outdoor and enjoy the world!
  • If you’re looking for a bundle of different easy hiking trails that range from 1km to 4km, this is the right place. The whole area is nice and neat with spectacular mountain views. It preserves all kinds of original plants and wildlife where you could find along the trails. It’s easy to jump from one trail to another so you probably can spend all day here. There’s a hot spring near by the grand entrance where you can boil eggs and corns if you’re hungry after hiking. I recommend this natural spot if you visit Yilan and have enough time to spend.
  • I went to this place for travel on August 21, 2021. I still remember that the air was so crisp, and the view was magnificent. I enjoyed the moment when I took a stroll in the mountains. If you went to this place, I recommended that you have better indulge yourself in nature. You will find that everything is wonderful.
  • Cuteness overload. The scenery is gorgeous and the bong bong is so cute. Will come back again for sure.💕
  • Nice view although we only have limited time to roam the place due to traffic in Taipei but I still amaze to this place.
