Sacred Mother Trail
Have you ever seen a dessert this big? I bet you haven't!
The Sacred Mother Trail is composed of two parts. This first, on the front, is an industrial road that links Wufengqi Waterfall to TungTien Bridge. The trail begins after passing TungTien Bridge, where you will be astonished by this lavish feast of nature. Stepping out of the forest, the majestic Wufengqi Mountain unfolds before your eyes: the layers of ridges covered in dark green look just like a "Matcha Mountain" from a distance. Formed by the extraordinary power of nature, this mountain cannot fail to impress. Why not take China Airlines and come taste the dessert mountain?
Transportation: Take a bus or train to Jiaoxi Station, then take the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle and get off at Wufengqi Scenic Area.
Mt. Hehuan Main Peak Trail (Maya Main Peak Platform)
Here, you can reach for the stars!
Located on the main peak of Hehuan Mountain, Maya Platform offers a stunning view. The name Maya originated from its similar appearance to the Maya Temple. With no light pollution, Maya Platform is also famous for being the highest stargazing spot in Eastern Asia. Maya Platform presents its distinct charm at different times of the day: sunrise and sunset during the day and a starry sky at night.
In just one place, you can see the earth bathed in the gold of the sunrise and surrounded by the Milky Way — a magical moment you can't see in the city. Next time, come visit and wish upon a star.
Transportation: Take the High Speed Rail to Taichung Station, then take the bus and get off at Puli Station. Then get on the Qingjing Farm Shuttle to Qingjing Farm Station, and take the bus for Wuling and get off at Hehuan Mountain Station.
