  • 自新竹開車至司馬庫斯約為 2.5小時, 由於擔心路況不佳, 故開了AWD車款前往. 已經在事前確認各自單向停止上/下山的時間, 如抓對時間上/下山, 則可以減少很多與對向車會車的機率. 如針對低底盤的車子, 不建議上山. 司馬庫斯神木群 hikking 總長約為 4-5hrs (依照每人腳程不同時間亦不同). 全家大小皆適宜散步前往. 步道上 2月底可以看到櫻花. 如要規範一天的行程很趕, 建議規...  more »
  • 個人真的的覺得要開3.5小時的車,到一個山區景點住宿或走走,真的建議不必是斯馬庫斯. 光是山區開車的時間就要2.5小時,後面的坡度又過陡,路面雖然都已經鋪過鋪面,但很多也都破壞了,然後看到的景色只是一般的山區景色,有少許的櫻花,個人覺得開車去武陵農場或是阿里山住宿遊玩,甚至是新竹苗栗山區露營的經驗,都是有得住有得走有得看,且都比這邊來的好玩多多了. 另外,斯馬庫斯是由一群泰雅族人的家,雖然他們願意...  more »
  • 一天司馬庫斯行,讓我對司馬庫斯印象深刻,一日遊真的很趕,建議可以住在司馬庫斯,這樣才可以好好認識這上帝的部落,建議可以從山下帶些食物上來,不然可能又要吃泡麵了,還有司馬庫斯的路況並不會很好,底盤低的車子千萬不要上來會撞到底盤,建議開車來要中途休息一下,下坡請用低速檔,這樣剎車以及引擎才不會過熱。  more »

  • It's an absolutely beautiful place. Difficult to get to, especially if driving, but worthwhile. If you're going by a motorcycle (125 cc. is enough, BTW), be sure to tank up to the brim at the foot of the mountain in Jianshi. You might buy an extra liter of fuel for safety. Be careful on the road and leave before noon to get there early. The trail to big trees (巨木) is a long but easy one—10 km total should take you a few hours. Again, it's good to go there before noon. A lot of people enter the trail early in the morning so you may choose to go about 10:00. There's another trail to a waterfall, which is shorter but far more difficult. Might be good to avoid it in rainy weather. I'd recommend 3 days 2 nights, with he last day spent in Cinsbu Village (鎮西堡) on the other side of the valley.
  • Beautiful place for a relaxing walk to the top to view the majestic cedar trees. Cool clean air
  • Nice but too many busses full of people.
  • Yaya Qparung (Tree of Mother) is not just old and large, it has a distinctive shape that resembles a giant with two strong arms, protecting Atayal people for hundreds of years. Smangus is special not only for the mountains and forests, it lives a socialism ideal. They share the land and food and raise their children together. This is not an ordinary tourism attraction. They are not running a business here. They are protecting the mountains, the culture, and the life style that is passed by the ancestors, as a legacy of human. Join them at the church at Saturday night to share their stories and passions. That's the best part of this trip.
  • This is a really cool place to go to for hiking and exploring the mountains. Tried some local bee liquor and hiked to a few supposedly sacred trees. I would go back, but it's not easy to get to.
