It is an excellent side to gain knowledge about nature and ecology. The area includes over 770 hectares of virgin forest, and at an altitude of approximately 1500-1580m, the region is rich with bird life and other fauna. It is also filled with juniper trees, which is unusual for the tropical South Taiwan.

Travel Trips

It is difficult to do justice to Tengzhi on a one-day trip for many reasons, for example, many animals do not come out until the evening. For people planning to visit Tengzhi, it is advised that you arrange a two-day itinerary that includes visits to other sites around Liugui. The trip from the guest house to the lookout tower covers a total distance of 1.8km, and the hike takes about 2-3 hours.
