Bathing in the forest - Dasyueshan Forest Bathing Trail

2020/07/15
Hiking in the Forest Bathing Trail

A flat route for easy walking, the natural trail winds its way through a mixed forest of Taiwan Red False Cypress, Taiwan Cypress, Taiwan Hemlock, and broadleaf trees.

If you’d like to see the forest scenery of Dasyueshan but don’t have much time, the Forest Bathing Trail in the Dasyueshan National Recreation Area is well worth visiting. The route is flat and easy for walking, and makes its way through a natural forest composed of a mix of Taiwan Red False Cypress, Taiwan Cypress, Taiwan Hemlock, and broad-leaved trees. Most sections of the route are paved with planks, with steps made out of sleepers, and dirt slopes. The beautiful natural scenes appear in front of you as you make your way along the track.

Entering the primitive forest trail, groups of cypress trees more than 500 years old are seen everywhere along the way; breathing the moisture in the air rich in the unique aroma of cypress and stretching freely fill you with the beauty of life. Through the dense leaves and tree branches with the light partly hidden, it’s a scene from a fairyland. On the sides of the trail, there’s rich vegetation as well as various species of birds, such as Timaliidae and Black-throated Tit. It’s also one of the few places in Taiwan to provide good observation of Taiwan Whistling-thrush, Little Forktail, and Plumbeous Water-redstart. Take a break here; listening to the mountain birds singing around you will be an unforgettable memory.

Previously named Anmashan Lodge Loop Trail, it is near the Anmashan accommodation area; the entrance is at the 43K of Dasyueshan Forest Road and has a total length of 3km. Because it’s flat with little elevation change, the route only takes about 70 min. It’s highly recommended to travelers who are visiting the Dasyueshan National Recreation Area for the first time.
