What We Love:

Begin at Lintian Mountain Forestry Center, a once thriving logging town in lush mountain surrounds that has fallen into abandonment in recent years, but which remains a fascinating place to see the traces of a thriving Chinese cypress lumber industry: disused machinery and tools, an old timber railway and Japanese-style architecture from the days of occupation. Continue to the Butterfly Valley where over 30 of the colorful creatures flit between camphor trees, waterfalls, steep valleys and magnificent views. A delicious lunch is provided then a chance to taste the freshest high-quality milk as you sit outdoors at Ruisui Pasture. The tour ends on a sweet note, with a visit to Hualien Sugar Factory. A popular stop to sample all manner of flavored popsicles and ice cream and to visit the neat rows of Japanese-style bungalows built for workers during the Japanese occupation.

A well-preserved discontinued lumbering area depicting the lumbering industry during the Japanese occupation. In it you find many old buildings, a discontinued railway line, a stage, a cafe and an old railway locomotive. Very peaceful and full of greenery, it sits on top of this mountain. Here, you can find very big timber exhibits, some sculpture, artworks, tools and machinery, documents and an auditorium in the compound. Understand this compound once had a population of 2000 with 400 to 500 household.


Nice place to learn something about the past, building are mostly renovated and include wood carvings. All is in Japanese style. Make sure to walk one of the trails for a great view.
