Secret forest closest to Taipei metro area - Neidong National Forest Recreation Area
Would you like to get close to nature and the forest? You can get there in the time it takes to listen to an album.
Located in Xinxian Village, Wulai Township, about a 50-minute drive from Xindian District, New Taipei City, Neidong National Forest Recreation Area is the national forest recreation area closest to Taipei metro area, and
Neidong Waterfall is considered the most spectacular waterfall in Taiwan.
Enjoying plentiful water resources contributed by Nanshi River and Neidong River, the area has nurtured luxuriant forests that support an incredible richness and diversity of plant and animal life, and has thus become the representative of the ecological environment of primitive streams and canyons at low altitude in northern Taiwan. Strolling along the friendly walking trail, one can admire the magnificent scene of the mighty current of Neidong Waterfall in the close distance and breathe in freely the negative ions, well reputed as air vitamins, together with the magical phytoncides in the forest. In addition, bountiful ferns, birds, butterflies and other wildlife resources can also be discovered. When it comes to spring and summer as the frogs begin to croak boisterously, the name of “croaking valley” is hence justified. Visitors can carry out a variety of natural and ecological observations all year round before they travel to Wulai to take a Wulai log cart, visit the old street, have a hot spring bath or join a tribal and cultural experience program. A trip to Wulai is fruitful, varied and healthy.
