Ci'entang, Nantou County

(70+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Hike up the hillside all the way to Ci'entang, a nine-story pagoda. Climb the stairs to the top floor for sweeping views over the lake, which sits down in the valley below. Breathe in the fresh air on your way up, and admire the untouched nature on both sides of the path. After you've absorbed the view, ring the centuries-old bell--engraved with several designs--which you'll find inside the structure. Use our Nantou County vacation planner to arrange your visit to Ci'entang and other attractions in Nantou County.
