  • It is a part of the central Mountain, refreshing and pleasant to go to summer, in addition to enjoying the nature of the atmosphere, but also to see the Cloud Sea Oh, very good, but may need to bring cold clothing

  • Located almost in the center of the entire northern Taiwan, the Shenmu Mountains are magnificent and the trees are towering, which is a beautiful scene worth exploring. From the county road to the Aleppo road, the path of the long and tough winding, more deepen the division and the world of the isolation of absolute beauty, hope that you love to protect this beautiful forest.

  • The head of the camp is at least four minutes from the start of the mountain in Hsinchu, and the road is winding, and if it is not often the driving path (and the road line is not ripe), the advice is to travel to the tourist agency, from the travel agency to the tribe. The division is a community of communities that share accommodation, refreshment, shopping, and their forest (SHENMU) trails, after arriving in the house, put your baggage in the room and take a tour around the environment with a tribal dinner (vegetarian meal), and later in the late meeting of the people of the division of Dallas. The idea of their tribal camps and the organization structure (the mass is a communal system), through the Division of power, the elderly can retire at ease and let their children rest in peace, and in fact, the ideals of the society, the money of the community of justice, will go away from the escape tribal experience of another social model, It's also a spiritual holiday. The night is unaffected by the light, you can look up at the Milky Way galaxy, the path is the tribal and living symbiosis of the economic source, visitors for the beautiful forest, to increase the income of the tribe, so that the interests of the tribe and the forest in order to allow the sustainability of the camp.

  • 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.
  • Breathtaking. Worth the long drive to get away from the city.
  • 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.
