The visit of Sixty Rock Mountain for the Orange Daylily (aka Golden Needle) flower sea is one of main goal of this trip. We missed the flower season two years ago, so it’s definitely very important for all of us. Lucky us to have a sunny day with a lot of flowers. Basically, farmers would save some field for sight seeing to let the flowers widely open to form the flower sea to attract people. Other remote (not by the roadsides) field would harvest to dry or sell freshly which you won’t see any flowers. One of famous dish is golden needle flower spare rib soup. Actually, it’s fine to eat the dried one as snack.

We stopped by a small coffee shop by the roadside to have a cup of coffee. We ended up to buy a lot of dried golden needle flower from the store once we know she is also a Hakka. I bought some golden fruit for my mom as well.

We loved this spot, and although less than half was in bloom and we were at the end of the day, the whole place was poetic

We're very lucky to visit Sixty Rock Mountain during the second week of August while the lilies were in full bloom. No words to describe the beautiful and majestic scenery we saw! Mountains after mountains of golden lilies! Expect to hike around one hour, at leas,t from the parking lot at the look out tower. One setback was that there's no restroom! It's a long drive from nearby cities by definitely worth it!

Sixty Rock Mountain, pronounced as “Liu-Shi-Dan Shan” in Chinese.

It’s all season welcomed while the flower season is from July to late September.

The flower there is Daylily, pronounced “Jin-Chen Hua” in Chinese. The flower could be cooked or made as tea, and even as herbs. But there’s one thing should be noted that once the flowers are blooming they are not eatable.

There are many ways to get there. You could take trains from Taipei to Fuli Station then order a taxi directly to this location. Or you could just rent a car.

For me, this time, I drove on my own from Kaohsiung. It took me almost 5 hours to there. However, it’s worthy.

I spent 3days there, enjoy the fresh air, kind people and comfortable b&b.

And of course, I took a lot of photos there.

Since the way to the mountain isn’t dangerous for driving the sedan or suv. It’s totally fine for solo trip or family trip.

After getting back from there, I can’t wait to make my next trip there again!!

If you wish to join the daylily season and catch the magnificent view, July to September are the month that fix the season. Shuttle bus are provided tru Hualien gov and will announced tru their website. To check detail you may refre to "Hualien Tourist Service" website with english version, or search tru google with chinese input "六十石山金針花季" and view for d latest info.
Road to the top of hill are narrow and rugged, you may also drive up there but sure quite hustle as everyone are chasing there. But overall worth it, you can get magnificent astonishing view up there.

The view is definitely you can't get else where. A nice breeze and stunning views on top of the mountain. If you happened to be there around the season, get a private driver and drive u up to the mountain. The road coming from hualien is something you won't want to miss!

This place is famous for it's day lily. It could be very warm under the sun in summer time. I was bit disappointed since it was an off season time, so not much flowers there. but it was nice to have the view. it's easy to go there with scooter. plan the trip well, I wouldn't go there off season just want to see the view.. better to do something along the way.. is it worth.. ? well, if right season with a lot flower would be wonderful..

Our guide map said the blooming season is from December to February. After driving dangerously steep slopes, the view opened up to: twigs. More precisely, burnt twigs. Everything was closed. Still nice view of neighbouring mountains though.

You need either a private local guide or drive to reach here as it is not so easily accessible by public transport. Why is it a secret garden ? Because during summer times the golden orange jin-yin-hua flowers will be in full blossom and the whole hill top will be covered with them.

It is like walking into a beautiful picture which has orange yellow flowers lining up the mountain surrounded by clear blue sky. This is not a popular tourist destination hence it is not crowded and you get to enjoy this nature beauty all by yourself with so much personal space.

There are some shops that will make dishes out of the flowers and they are tasty!! So organic. Definitely a place to go for nature lovers/ explorers.
