    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.

Besides eagles, Longtoushan is also popular with tourists, who are attracted by a weaving mountain trail that looks like a miniature Great Wall of China. It only takes half an hour to walk through the hiking trail, but you can also walk for another 30 minutes to the Duonagao Suspension Bridge, where you can appreciate the scenery of the valley below.

Longtou Mountain is often seen in groups of eagles circling the cliffs or soaring along the valleys, hence the original name "Eagle Valley". The trails in the Longtoushan Recreation Area should be considered special among the tourist attractions in Taiwan. It's worth a visit because of the beautiful scenery. At the end of the wooden walkway, you can connect to the Dona High Suspension Bridge. Due to the long-term invasion of the more fragile rock formations by the Zhuokou Stream, the river channel is gradually curved. Under the continuous erosion and accumulation of the stream, the precious circulation hill topography is gradually formed. Because the rugged mountain looks like the appearance of a dragon spitting out pearls from a distance, it is named Longtou Mountain and has become one of the famous scenic spots and landmarks in Maolin District. Today's visit, there are not many tourists, the weather is comfortable, and the whole journey is completed. The views on both sides are excellent and it is worth a visit.

There are a lot of people on holidays, and cars can be parked at Longtoushan Recreation Area The trails are well planned and suitable for family outings. The only downside: the toilet is messy. Starting from the square, it is divided into 2 trails: Wangfu Cliff and Dona Suspension Bridge This time I chose to live on the Donna Suspension Bridge, about 1.5 hours back and forth (take pictures, take a break)

In the Longtoushan Recreation Area, there is a boardwalk known as the Taiwan version of the Small Great Wall, which is one of the famous scenic spots and landmarks in Maolin District. The distance of the boardwalk is not long, except for the need to climb up the steps before climbing the boardwalk, in fact, the steps of the boardwalk are not particularly difficult. Longtoushan Trail can overlook Wangfu Cliff, Dona Bridge and Dona Suspension Bridge. Go straight along the boardwalk until you reach the end point, which is the pavilion. Of course, you must not miss the Dona Suspension Bridge. This is a must-see attraction when you come to Longtoushan Recreation Area. The whole journey takes about two hours to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. The scenery along the way is quite beautiful and the view is wide. It is a recommended attraction. (20211120)

In the central square of Longtoushan Recreation Area, follow the signs of the Small Great Wall, you will be able to reach the trailhead of the Small Great Wall Trail, and then walk for about ten minutes to reach the first resting platform, followed by a comfortable and easy-to-walk wooden trestle trail Then, the landscape of the Small Great Wall is right in front of you. Because the wooden plank trail is located on the ridge, all the way over the mountains and ridges, it is really like walking on the Great Wall with full marks. The scenery is beautiful and the vision is vast. Going forward, you can go to the Dona Suspension Bridge, full of aboriginal people. Style and totem suspension bridge, you can see the majestic beauty of the valley from the bridge, and the breeze blows slowly, making you feel at ease. You can clearly enjoy the panoramic view between the dragon's head and the dragon's spine, as well as the scenery of the Shuangxi flowing water in the canyon under the bridge, which will make you admire Taiwan again This beautiful scenery.
