    Wanshan Tribe

The Wanshan Village is located on Kaohsiung County Highway No. 132 in Maolin District. The entrance of the Tribe is 7 kilometers away from the Maolin District Office. The Village was previously referred to as the Mandaulan Tribe in the Japanese colonial era and known among the indigenous tribal members as Oupunphuo.

Originally situated 1,475 meters above sea level at the bottom of the Wantoulan Mountain, the Village used to be the most remote indigenous community in Maolin District. However, due to poor road conditions, it was moved to its current location in 1954, leaving behind slate stone houses and a mysterious group of stone sculptures that depict the love story of Gubatsaeh.

Visitors are recommended to spend 30-40 minutes looking at slate stone houses and the catholic church below the Village.
