    Pulai Stream Xitoushe War Road

Baolai was originally named Pulai. Xitoushe is located where the waters divide between the Laoning Stream and Baolai Stream, and was originally inhabited by the Zou tribe. The war road is about three kilometers long and is elevated around 450-500 meters high. The amount of time it takes to walk the total distance is approximately one hour. This road was built along the ridge by the Japanese people during the Japanese Colonial Period so that military supplies could be transported to the peak of Baolai, allowing a fort to be built on Meilong Mountain, with goals to suppress fierce armed resistance from local aborigines.

The road is not very steep and chairs are available along the path for visitors to rest if they are tired. The route is suitable for all ages to travel on. It is lined with rich plants, including bamboo grooves, acacia, thyme, and plum gardens. It offers views overlooking Baolai Stream and Laonong Stream and beyond.

There’s a saying that

The war road was built because during the early Japanese Colonial Period, the aborigines attempted to resist the Japanese people. The Japanese people came up with an intelligent idea and transported ammunition, mortars, and other weapons along the ridge at night, turning the path that was originally used by the aborigines into a military road. They also built a gun emplacement on Meilun Mountain opposite Xitoushe in preparation for an attack. However, the aborigines still tried to ambush the Japanese people along this road.
