    Longtoushan Leisure Area

    Longtou Mountain (Longtoushan) can be found near the 12km mark of Kaohsiung County Highway No. 132 in Maolin. It covers an area of about 22 hectares and is surrounded by mountains on three sides. Longtoushan, literally Dragon Head Mountain in English, features a rare landform shaped by a river flowing through the region to resemble the shape of a humongous dragon lying on the ground, with the mountain range as its spine. Over time, the river sculpted the mountain and eventually cut it in half, making it look like a dragon spewing out pearls from afar and winning it a nickname “pearl-spewing dragon.” The mountain is also known as the ‘Eagle Valley’ for a large eagle population occupying its cliffs and valleys.

    Duona Village’s Stone Slab Houses

    The Douna Slate Stone House Hub can be found in the Douna Village in Maolin District. It is a specialty of the Paiwan tribe, whose people built slate stone houses together using slate stones collected directly from the Wenquan River nearby. While the body of the house is usually built with slates of lighter shades, which are susceptible to corrosion by wind and rain, the floor and roof are usually made from heavier slates of darker shades, which are more resilient than light-colored slates. In addition, some slate stone houses feature Deinagkistrodon totems on the top or sides of the door, which signifies the owner’s social status, which is either a tribal chief or a highborn.
