    Tengjhih National Forest Recreation Area

The Tengjhih National Forest Recreation Area is located in Baolai Village of Taoyuan District. It covers an area of 770 hectares and spans 1,500 to 1804 meters above sea level. The national forest recreation area boasts diverse high-altitude tree species, including maple, cypress, cherry, plum, and Taiwan red pine; it is said to be the most well-preserved natural laurel forest in Taiwan. Besides towering trees, visitors can also find a wide variety of flower species in the park, which present changing scenery in different seasons, attracting tourists to come back again and again throughout the year. Moreover, temperatures in the park do not fluctuate much, with the annual average staying at 17℃, making it the best summer resort for hiding away from heat and helping it gain the moniker “Mini Xitou of the South.”

Besides hiking trails for different levels of visitors, the observatory is a must-see place for visitors, from which they can gaze at Mount Jade, Daguan Mountain, Xiaoguan Mountain, North Dawu Mountain, and Mount Pinuyumayan on the horizon. In brief, the Tengjhih National Forest Recreation Area offers a wide selection of activity choices ranging from forest therapy, hiking, flower viewing, and bird or insect sighting. It is also one of the best places for ecological education.

    A "Fujieda National Forest Recreation Area", which may be closed and difficult to come back to in the future, was closed for 12 years and reopened at the end of last year because of the previous Morakot 88 typhoon, which caused damage to many trails in the park. The road is damaged. At present, in this troubled scenic spot, only 500 people can enter the park on the opening day, but the reservation must be completed online. If you get a spot, it is not easy to enter the park. Because there is no parking lot in the park, you need to connect to the park. Cars can only be parked in Sakura Park recently. Now there is a section of road that is damaged (18k), so the connection is made. The barge can only be placed here. To go around the "Fujiexia Forest Trail", there are many uphills along the way, and the average person's foot strength may take about 40 to 50 minutes. The air in the park is really good, you can absorb phytoncide, and you can walk to strengthen your body. There are 4 main trails to enter the park. The easier one is the tree sea trail, then the begonia trail, and the next is the spruce trail, the most difficult. It is the Xishihua Trail, and everyone can choose what they can do to make arrangements. In the end, you still have to take the Fujieda Forest Trail back to the original connection point!

    2022.04 Visit here again after 20 years. This year, the park is finally open, but there are only 500 places per day. You will receive a text message notification after you make an appointment online. The main road in front of the gate is still undergoing renovation works. The car is parked in the parking lot of Erbaoshan Cherry Blossom Park. It costs 100 yuan per person to take a shuttle bus to/back to the control point. After getting off the bus, walk 1 km under the Fujizhi Forest. Walk to the gate to buy a ticket to enter. There are 4 trails in the Fujieda Forest Recreation Area. The best route to take is that the Sea of ​​Trees Trail is a flat road. If you want to reach the 1804-meter triangle point on the Fujieda Observation Deck, you must take the Begonia, Xi Shihua or Spruce Trail. I passed a section of Begonia Trail from the Spruce Trail and climbed to the 1804m observation deck, and then went to the Xishihua Trail in a counterclockwise direction to connect to the Shuhai Trail for about 4 hours. It was past four o'clock in the afternoon when I returned to the gate, and the shuttle bus stopped at three in the afternoon. I drove, and it started pouring rain, and the top of the mountain was cloudy and foggy. I was worried that the mountain road on the return trip would be muddy, difficult to walk, and dangerous. I asked if there were street vendors at the gate who were local people, willing to pay 100 yuan per person to drive us. After the road was repaired, it was taken from the control gate to the parking lot of Sakura Park. After getting in the car, I saw the driver driving up and down the mountain road with a big collapse. I am really grateful to the driver for his willingness to run this dangerous mountain road and take me down the mountain to save 2.5 kilometers.

    2022.03.27 Entered the park, fulfilling a 30-year dream. It is far and mysterious to the people of Taipei. At present, due to the collapse of highway 18K, please consider it well. It's good to have a local shuttle service. The traffic part consists of 3 parts, you have to drive -----> stop at the Cherry Blossom Park ------> 18K landslide ------> Fujieda entrance. Because of the collapse, it was a pleasant driving experience to open the Fujieda Link Road to 16K Cherry Blossom Park. Sakura Park has a shuttle bus for 100 yuan to and from (the official website has an appointment), which is fair; I forgot to load the memory card and turned back halfway, so I took the shuttle bus, but this is right, I would rather stay in Fujieda for walking time. From the 18K collapse to the entrance of Fujieda, you can walk on the trail (

    Remember to make an appointment online first. The car can be parked at the shuttle bus at the Pingtung Forest Management Office (100 yuan per person) or walk all the way to the road collapse. The more formal way is to walk around the road collapse and go down the Fujizhi Forest Road. It takes about 40 minutes to get to the entrance of the park. There is also a private delicacy connection on site, but the safety is questionable. The park visitor center provides drinking fountains, toilets, a small amount of cooked food, instant noodles and dry food. It takes about six hours to go around the entire park and go back and forth down the Fujieda Forest Road. You can decide the mileage yourself.

    Due to road repairs, you can only drive to Sakura Park, you can walk or take the public shuttle bus ($50) to 18K, then walk 1.1km of hiking trails to the toll station, on the return journey, you can take the residents’ shuttle bus ($50) to 18K, then You can take the public shuttle bus ($50) to Sakura Park, of course, you can also walk, but the residents' shuttle bus is driving very fast on the road under construction, which feels very dangerous, and the government should manage it. There are 3 routes to enter the scenic spot. The viewing platform is the highest point, which is very easy to walk. On the return journey, go to the visitor center to eat the black wheel and drink coffee, and reserve your strength to walk back to the Cherry Blossom Park.
