Visiting Taiwan and Alishan National Park

Visiting the The Alishan National Scenic Area, Taiwan

The post comes from Dave Weatherall on his top travel site: That Travel Blog. In it he tells you all about the National Park, how to get there, what to do when you do and how much you should expet to spend.

I’ll let Dave take it from here: “The Alishan National Scenic Area was the most magical and memorable place I have visited in Taiwan during my 6 months on the island. From its picturesque sunrises and sunsets, Japanese-built trains, peaceful hiking trails with sacred trees, and the production of Taiwan’s internationally-famous tea. Alishan is definitely not to be missed.

With an average of 2500 meters above sea level, the Alishan National Scenic Area lies in the eastern mountains of Chiayi County. In the winter, the air is cool and thin with temperatures as low as 5°C at high elevations. In the summer, it can get a slightly humid with temperatures between 14°C and 24°C. My girlfriend and I arrived in January and it was about 8°C!
