Alisan is beautiful. We saw the Shenmu, which are trees that are on average 800 to over a thousand years old. Our minsu owner/guide drove us up to Alisan, and we purchased train tickets to go further up to the mountain to view the Shenmu (literally translated to sacred woods). As it was a rainy day, our guide took us... More

The views of the mountains were just breath taking. The clouds at the mid of the mountains feels like you are in heaven. The driver who took us says that he sees this view of cloud first time though he has been there multiple times. Grateful for the fantastic views. Remember to take a bus up to the forest of... More

Nature is beautiful. And you can see the awesomeness here. The only thing that you have to tackle is the big tour group. Very difficult to get good shots without them in background. Sometimes they do not queue to take photo. Do not be angry with them. We are here to appreciate the nature.

Ali mountain is impressive and the sunrise (depending on the weather) is something to behold. Altho not easy to get to, nevertheless, the options to get there are plentiful : bus, Alishan railway, private vehicle. The visitors' center is well staffed with friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people. Food, souvenirs and commercial endeavours were kept well away from the beautiful forests.... More

Alishan provides different type of scenary as you make your way up the altitude. The mist amid the tea plantations, mountain ranges enhance the mysterious feel to the place. Absolutely beautiful

The air is fresh and it gets cold in the morning. One can stay out of Chaiyi instead of Alishan as there is no entertainment for tourists in Alishan and accommodation were limited and so is ability of getting food when one gets hungry after dinner time. There is a convenient store for those who wants to make purchases for... More
