Dasyueshan National Forest Recreation Area, in Taiwan’s central region, is home to diversified ecological resources. It is home to notably rich birdlife, and the chances of encountering the Swinhoe’s Pheasant, Taiwan Bamboo Partridge, and members of other Taiwan endemic species are high.
Dasyueshan, at an elevation between 2,000m and 3,000m, is home to giant Taiwan Cypress and Taiwan Red Cypress trees. Throughout the year thick cloud and mist linger, and when walking through the forest visitors can feel that they are immersed in phytoncides.
Once an important forestry center in central Taiwan, many forestry-related remnants have been preserved. Dongshih Forestry Culture Park, for example, preserved many early days timber processing sites for the visitors to reminisce.
