【18 Arhats Mountain /Liouguei Tunnel】
Eighteen Arhats Mountain is a range of over 40 conical peaks. The mountain's unique gravel geology is highly permeable and prone to erosion. As a result, the mountain has a remarkable shape, with steep, sheer-sided cliffs. The mountain is pierced by Liouguei Tunnel, which was used during the Japanese occupation period for transporting timber.
【Tengjhih National Forest Recreation Area】
This subtropical forest area is situated deep in the mountains of southern Taiwan. Planted Taiwan cryptomeria and mixed stands of common cryptomeria and natural broadleaf trees are the dominant species here. The forest also provides an excellent habitat for an array of plant and wildlife species, making this a good spot for birding, butterfly watching and other natural explorations. Hiking trails, waterfalls and lovely sunrise views further add to the forest's attraction.
