We explore the Aowanda National Forest Recreation Area in the mountains of central Taiwan, which is blessed with natural resources such as maple forest, cherry blossoms, birds, waterfalls, and thick woodlands all intertwined with one another. It is absolutely worth visiting all year round. Take a stroll along the landscape trails with their changing colors in different seasons, walking in the woods in a spirit of freedom, enjoy the forest’s phytoncides. We even arrange a night excursion to most fully experience this enthralling and diverse ecological environment.
Feel the direct contact with nature, and aim to walk barefoot over the verdant grassland, relax in an idleness with a lovely picnic out in the open air, and taste the wonderful flavors of local ingredients. Round off this very special forest healing journey by gathering fallen branches and leaves scattered on the forest ground, create your own flowers-and-grass portrait collage, let the forest inspire you to write a letter to your future self, and allow yourself to reposition and find fresh motivation in your life.

The Waterfall Zone Trail lies beside the retention basin and has a total length of 1km. It starts at the Taipower retention basin, which was used for water resource management. The trail goes up under the shade of lush trees along the retention basin, and it takes about 30 minutes’ easy hiking to reach Aowanda’s Flying Waterfall and Double Waterfalls.
In the forest filled with pine trees, enjoying the breeze, lights, and shadows, people can either stand or lay down to spend a relaxing afternoon and keep the little memories of everyday life in the forest through our five senses.
