    Zishalishali Trail

"Zishalishali" is a phrase from the indigenous language that means "a place of many shell ginger trees." The trail’s name came from the early indigenous residents. When they took this path to attend their farming work in the mountains, they encountered numerous shell ginger trees on the road.

The trail entrance is located beside the industrial road behind the Maolin District Office. Although it has a total length of 3.7km, currently only 2.1km of the trail is open to the public. Visitors will be able to smell the orange jasmines at the entrance, appreciate dancing butterflies at the midpoint, and take a rest at the trail’s scenic platform, which provides a wide view of the Maolin Tribe, Zhuokou River, and the lush green Central Ridge. Squirrels, Muller’s barbets, and young chickens scurry in the forests, and crested serpent eagles explores the sky above. Visitors are welcomed to come and enjoy the chirping of birds. In addition, be sure to visit the Maya Pavilion, with "Maya" meaning "Maolin" in the indigenous language, to appreciate the magnificent view of the Zhuokou River and Laonong River converging together. Visitors should arrive at the purple butterfly park after about 50 minutes of walk. Zishalishali is the most ideal ecological hiking trail for those seeking better health. However, BBQ and camping is prohibited on Zishalishali, and in addition, visitors should not break into private farms along this path.
