    Shihba Luohanshan

The Eighteen Arhats Mountain, collectively known as the three major volcanic landscapes in Taiwan with the Huoyan in Maoli and Jiujiufeng in Nantou, is situated in Liugui District, close to the 5km mark of the Provincial Highway No. 27.

The mountain, consisting of limestone with interstices of varying sizes, is easily sculpted by rainfall over time and shaped to look like 18 arhats striking different martial art postures with different facial expressions. Owing to the spectacular landscape described previously, the mountain is dubbed the Mini Guilin of Taiwan. The area features a variety of landforms, ranging from free-standing mountains to cuestas, steep cliffs, U-shaped valleys, canyons, meanders, tributaries, and dry valleys, which contribute to a rare combination that presents great educational value.

Given that the Eighteen Arhats Mountain is designated as a nature reserve, permits from the Pingtung Forest District Office are required to enter the mountain, so please remember to apply in advance. Visitors are recommended to spend one to two hours exploring the place.

Under the bridge is a clear little stream that is suitable for water recreational activities. In addition to the sounds of insects and birds, visitors might even find footprints belonging to Taiwanese macaques!


It is located at the 52km marker on Taiwan Provincial Highway No. 28, near Sinwei and midway of the six tunnels on Liouguei Rd.



Traffic Information

The intersection of the new and old paths is the beginning of Jioulong Baoshih. From there, enter the old route of Taiwan Provincial Highway No. 28. On the trip, visitors will be able to see the deep and mysterious Sixth Tunnel of Liugui.

    I haven't been in, I'm just passing by This year, I specially picked the sweet root season to go to the stream to take pictures of the sweet root Looking at the many gravel trucks moving on the stream bed, the scenery of such a piece of sweet roots is gradually lost. 2022-09-18

    It's a beautiful place, the weather is cool, but the parking lot is relatively small and there may be no place to park on holidays🥹 There is a sign in the tunnel, please do not enter. I still see tourists entering. I feel that the soft soil and rocks are a bit dangerous, so don’t make the headlines of the news! There are coffee shops and souvenir shops. An ice cream is 40 yuan cheap, delicious and rich, and a cup of latte is 110. I think it is not so ok compared to the price.

    2022.03.01 The tour group came here early the next morning no other tours feel good It takes less than half an hour to go around It's just that the magnificent Eighteen Arhats Mountains don't know where to go to see them After going around, you can sit down and drink a cup of coffee to watch the Naonong River It's just that the Laonong River is so dry Worried about the lack of water again in summer~
