Dalai Tribe Ecological Tours


Dalai Tribe’s “breathing houses”

Dawadawang, a northern Paiwan tribe that’s over a century old, is known for its stone houses. Made with stone plates, these beautiful houses are the best examples of indigenous people’s amazing architectural skills. It is said these organic houses can “breathe,” and they do reflect many an aspect of the Paiwan culture and wisdom of life. The old Dalai tribe is an ecological treasure land itself, and therefore Dalai ecological tours have become a major tourism item over the last few years. The residents hope to promote their tribal culture from rather different point of views!
