    Pulai Stream Xitoushe War Road

The trail entrance can be found in the Baolai Hot Spring Park in Liugui District of Kaohsiung. The trail is the namesake of the Pulai Xitou Tribe that found itself situated at the watershed separating the Laonong River and the Baolai River. At the beginning of the 20th century, a Japanese anthropologist came across the relics of the Tribe, which also included the battlefield trail. The trail was built circling up the Meilong Hill to transport construction materials for a fort on the top in the Japanese colonial era, which was used to regulate the indigenous activities. The trail then became known as the Pulai Xitou Tribe Battle Field Trail now, serving as a reminder of history.

Visitors are recommended to spend an hour here. The trail is three kilometers long, and the pristine environment alongside is protected with ecological engineering methods. Said methods help to preserve a wide variety of plants on the two sides of the trail, including bamboos, Acacia confusas, Thymes, and plums.

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.

    A few-hundred-meter trail where you can overlook the township from, don’t miss it when you were here.

    #Kaohsiung# Six turtles# Pulai Xitou Society Battle Road The name of the trail comes from the discovery of the ruins of "Pulai Xitou She" by Japanese anthropologists during the Japanese occupation period. Pulai is the old name of Baolai, and Xitou She is located at the watershed between Yanong River and Baolai River. It was a settlement of the Tsou people a long time ago. . This battle route is said to have been built during the Japanese occupation. , The purpose is to build the Meilong Mountain Fort to control the activities of the local aborigines. The battle road is built along the ridgeline of the Meilong Mountain, and the coolies are mobilized to pull the gun barrels and building materials to the top of the Baolai Peak, which is of historical significance. . At present, the entrance of this trail is located in Baolai Huashang Hot Spring Park. It is about 3.5km back and forth. There is a slight climb but not very steep. Quite spectacular and perfect for a visit. . There is a viewing point in the battle road, and you can see the big collapsed wall next to the Baolai settlement, which is only separated by an Anonong River. 50m, the disaster also interrupted the Nanheng Highway, and the prosperity of the Baolai Hot Spring Area fell to the bottom of the valley. . In the past 13 years, this large collapsed wall is still barren. Every year during the flood season, the heavy rain still carries a large amount of soil and rocks to the riverbed, which continues to threaten the safety of the residents. The most recent serious disaster was the heavy rain in August last year. Baolai No. 1 Bridge, the only external road in the above area, has been closed for warning and turned into an isolated island on the road. Recently, the new Baolai No. 1 Bridge has been completed. The new bridge reduces the piers of the river and raises the bridge deck, so that there is more abundant water passage under the bridge. Should be able to face increasingly extreme climates.

    The wooden plank road is very new and easy to walk; there are mainly bamboo forests on both sides of the trail, and there are tree shades; the trail is up and down, and the slope is not very steep, but it may be a bit difficult for the elderly; the trail is not very long, if you are afraid of walking If you don't move, you can refer to the map and decide the route you want to take. On the way, you can overlook Baolai Stream and Yanong Stream.

    There are many stairs at the first entrance, and the rest are very gentle and easy to walk.
