Ci'entang, Nantou

(4.2/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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 vacation planner to arrange your visit to Ci'entang and other attractions in Nantou.

  • This one is a bit of a hike. It takes a while to get up there, but once you get to the top you pretty much have the palace to yourself and it is stunning. Amazing views from the top.  more »
  • Definitely worth the walk uphill to get to. Beautiful architecture and commanding views of the surrounding area. Amazing that Chiang Kai-Shek had it built as a tribute to his mother.  more »
  • Sun and moon-Tan tourist visitors. But far from the best vantage point. Did not undergoing renovations when I visited, but I put in for it.
