Taipingshan National Forest Recreation Area

Situated in Datong Township of Yilan County, the vast 12,631-hectare Taipingshan National Forest Recreation Area ranges from 500 to 2,000 meters above sea level. Tianguer and Dowan Creeks, two tributaries of Lanyan River, wind through high mountains and rift valleys. With a mean annual temperature of 11-12ºC, pure white snow falls during cold winters, while summers are cool and pleasant, making Taipingshan a vacation destination for all seasons.

The Sanxin, Nanhuda and Snow mountain ranges surround high-altitude southwestern Taipingshan. The northeast monsoon and ocean breeze from the Pacific pass directly through these mountains, which stretch from the northeast to the southwest. As the monsoon and ocean breeze advance, moist wind brings in abundant rainfall and pervasive fog year-round. Unpredictable fog and masses of clouds permeate the area, and light mist spreads throughout the clear sky, producing a sense of poetic beauty, especially in the early evening immediately following rain. Taipingshan has ten major attractions and eight nature trails to sightsee, of which, the most famous are Ciouchihze, Taipingshan, Maosing and Cueifong Lake. Ciouchihze is a valley famous for its calcium carbonate hot springs. The elegance of Ciouchihze allows visitors to have an exceptionally enjoyable time. Since Taipingshan’s Primeval Forest Park is at once magically charming yet surrounded by a bare atmosphere, it is often referred to as “Heaven on Earth.” Together with its surrounding forest and waterfowls in mist, Cueifong Lake, the largest alpine lake in Taiwan, makes for a picturesque landscape. Distinctive natural resources unique to the area can be found along eight trails. Visitors can go down Maosing by following along the 2.7-kilometer “Three-Tier Waterfalls Trail” and visit each of the magnificent waterfall’s three tiers: upper, middle, and lower. A 900- hectare pure Taiwanese beech forest is situated at the end of the 3.8-kilometer “Beech Trail” near Cueifong Lake. The golden hue of early spring and late autumn, the silhouette of bare branches in winter, and the advection frost of this rime landscape are spectacular and world renown wonders.

Taiping Mountain National Forest Recreation Area
Taiping Mountain has ever been called as "Minou", which means dense forests in Taiwanese and it was the cradle of primeval juniper forest originally and known as Three Largest Forest Farms of Taiwan together with Ali Mountain and Basian Mountain. Then it was transformed into Taiping Mountain National Forest Recreation Area until 1982 when the government of Taiwan ended logging industry.

在土場收費站收入園費,全票$200/人, 半票$100/人, 另收自小客小型車$100/輛, 過收費站後若不中停還要再往上開約半小時才到太平山莊停車場, 中間沿途有鳩之澤溫泉,見晴懷古步道,還有一處可觀賞雲海的步道及幾處小景點(可惜要趕時間搭蹦蹦車,故沒停下來慢慢走慢慢觀賞), 太平山莊有小木屋可供住宿(但假日都須提早訂房, 大小房型收費不同),山莊中有一間景觀咖啡簡餐廳可觀賞雲海, 另有一間中餐廳(有賣桌菜, 也有賣便當$120/個), 園區最大賣點的蹦蹦車(來回票,時間車次/座位數都固定,沒站票也不能超賣,須當天現場買票不接受預定)全票$180/人, 優待票$120/人, 從太平山站到茂興站單程約20分鐘,在茂興站週圍有3條森林步道, 每條都只300-500公尺, 停留的1小時內可3條全數輕鬆走完,享受充滿芬多精的森林浴, 步道內有許多日治時代砍伐巨型檜木後留下的型狀奇特的樹頭樹根, 可拍照留念。太平山莊階梯的最高點有一處鎮安宮, 原本是日治時代建立的神社, 後改建祀奉鄭成功, 等搭蹦蹦車若有時間可沿著階梯走上來看看。若開車經太平山莊停車場可再沿著平元林道再往上開到翠峰湖, 可惜這次要趕下午赴礁溪飯店泡湯的入住時間, 無法前往,真是殘念!另, 原路回程下山的道路險降坡及髮夾彎很多, 且午後山路又易再起濃霧,能見度很低, 若車速太快,又剛好遇到雨天或霧大, 道路濕滑,過彎時若看不清楚, 當成直線直開過去就可能會衝過頭到對向車道甚至衝落邊坡出事故(來搭蹦蹦車不要來玩碰碰車,來玩樂不要來玩命,有彎過去是藤原拓海, 彎不過去變成用命填海就慘了!),道路速限只25KM/HR,為防煞車過度磨耗及連續煞車高溫失靈, 建議打入低速檔(L檔或2檔,勿用D檔)在合理速限開(但也不要慢到當路隊長僱人怨!), 就當沿路欣賞山景+多吸點新鮮空氣撈本好了(因門票貴,且重點是要快快樂樂出門, 平平安安回家!)來過3次只住過1次太平山莊,四季感受的美感不同,值得再來!

2021的第一天剛好上山看日出遇到初雪❄️那天的景色讓我永身難忘,銀白色的世界如詩如畫!前往太平山的路不好走,加上入園前有管制,還要記得帶雪鍊不然有些地方就無法再上去了!可以看太平山森林遊樂區的臉書粉絲頁,常常有即時公告現在園區最新狀況!想要賞雪的人要算好時間才能玩得盡興!山上保暖工作非常重要,想吃泡麵的話,泡麵的熱水在太平山莊裡面有提供,還可以有泡泡麵的地方! 推薦「翠峰湖」步道,來了一定要走完,雖然因為下雪有一段下坡步道有些溼滑,一定要穿防滑的靴子或鞋子,運動鞋很滑!已經看到很多遊客滑倒了!但是走到後面你會發現景色和前面完全不同!非常漂亮,不虛此行❤️

太平山國家森林遊樂區的住宿非常難訂,要來此渡假的你需要有相當大的耐心坐在電腦前和它熬。 當看到紅槭艶艷,晨霧濛朧時,所有辛苦都化為烏有! 住宿房間內部整體0K,4人房房間面積不大。 早餐是採自助式的,菜餚內容不咋滴,如果以它不算便宜的房價來算,早餐的內容是貧乏的。 目前太平山國家森林遊樂區的嘟嘟火車已經開啟,坐車繞著山走,沿途的風景十分壯觀如同走進山川的山水畫般,心靈享宴很是豐富。 如果太平山國家森林遊樂區的服務人員能夠多一點笑容😊,多一點服務精神那這趟旅行就滿分了💯!(我一直覺得很奇怪納悶:為什麼只要冠上國家什麼遊樂森林啦賓館啦...等,服務人員的服務精神就特別低,跟4星5星飯店的服務人員簡直天壤之別?可它住宿費用也不便宜啊!)。
