  • We recommend going to the RV on the road is uneven,. This is the second visit the last difference is opened the beautiful scenery to take photos and new areas that have a lot of room and facilities. However, on the room phone signals are relatively weak. Part of their diet is very delicate and delicious, specializes in pretty, millet wine is good to drink. Siem m, from above about five hours after it is recommended not to rain later, the road is slippery and not slip.

  • Even if I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, I came to arrogant, and days a very good night, and saw a lot of great scenery, and the giant wood was more than enough to amaze amazing. The warrior pan is very delicious, the breakfast has the full sense, eats the rich mountain to see the giant wood is very good. Even after the rainy season a lot of falling stone, the road along the road is very Britain, once hit the car main face are stiff. Mountaineering is also along the way a lot of mud 濘 Road, luckily wronged I wear palladium waterproof shoes, down the mountain washed shoes on the clean slip.

  • So cold in the winter. No heater in the room. Very beautiful area with big Holly tree
  • This place is so remote that expectations run high for an exceptional experience. Unfortunately, and despite beautiful sceneries, I left Smangus wondering if it was really worth the trip.
  • 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.
  • A good place for a back country trip. Though it's not as countryside as I thought.
  • Beautiful to see.
