    Zishalishali Trail

The Zishalishali Trail sits in the Maolin Eco Park and can be accessed by the butterfly-sighting trail in the park.

Zishalishali is a word in the Lukai language, meaning “a place with abundant shell ginger.” Since mountains did not have proper names back then, the indigenous people would refer to them with trees or other plants growing in a mountain to identify them.

The whole trail is 3.7 kilometers long, and it takes 50 minutes to walk through it. However, only the first 2.1 kilometers in the Maolin Eco Park is open to the public. The trail is also part of an important migration destination for purple crow butterflies in winter, in addition to having an abundance of bird and insect species. Visitors are hence strongly advised against disturbing the migrating butterflies or destroying their habitat.

Visitors are recommended to spend one and a half hours here. They can park their cars in the Eco Park’s parking lot. They are advised against destroying the surrounding environment when watching butterflies.

    "Yue Tao" Rukai language ~ ㄙ Mile (transliteration); Chinese transliteration ~ Shali; Zi ~ means a lot, Zisha Li Shali ~ is an area that emphasizes many moon peach. There used to be no place names on the mountains, and the aboriginal ancestors went to the mountains to cultivate Take place names based on the trees or plants you see growing in the area. This is the reason why the Zishali Shali Trail got its name. The trail is located on the industrial road behind the Maolin District Office, with a total length of 3.7 kilometers. Currently, a general trail of 2.1 kilometers is temporarily open. It leads from the entrance with the scent of flowers in Qili, and walks easily to the Butterfly Trail. There is a viewing platform in the middle to enjoy the panoramic view of Maolin (tribe). , Zhuokou River, along with the emerald mountains of the Central Mountains, as well as squirrels, five-colored birds, chicks, and soaring doves in the sky…etc. Maya: Maolin meaning) watch the magnificent view of the Zhuokou River and the Anonong River, and the whole journey takes about 50 minutes from the end point to the Purple Butterfly Garden in the ecological park, rewarding you with private memories of a lifetime. The 1.6-kilometer forest walking trail is temporarily closed to tourists (there are two Maolin Stations at the end point and the foot of Liugui Dajin Liwang Mountain). The bridge was broken and the road collapsed due to the 88 floods, and the Zishali Shali Ancient Trail gave residents the hope of urgently contacting the outside world and asking for help, and provided the only life-saving path for the relief materials to be carried back into the tribe on foot. The open section of the Zishali Shali Trail is currently the best trail for agricultural use, ecological butterfly viewing and physical and mental health. Visitors are invited to enter and do not barbecue, camp, or harm farmers' crops. From the Maolin National Scenic Area Management Office, Tourism Bureau, Ministry of Communications

    Very easy to walk Very suitable for the elderly and children And there are many butterflies The road to admire the butterfly walk is relatively large If the other road has more steps but not steep And there are plenty of stone chairs along the road to sit on It takes about 1 hour to go back and forth

    Every year from November to February, when the purple monarch butterflies overwinter, be sure to come and experience the scenery of the flying butterflies.
