6 Unique Ecological Wonders of Taipingshan National Forest / 太平山六大生態奇觀

Taipingshan National Forest (太平山國家森林遊樂區) wasn’t always a picturesque and well-maintained protected area and its troubled past provides a significant contribution to the cultural fabric of the region and country.

The area is an ecological enchantment that offers visitors a chance to experience geothermal activities, primary and secondary forests, high-mountain lakes and other natural attractions.

太平山並不總是風景如畫且自然水土保持良好,太平山有著動蕩的歷史和過去,為太平山地區和台灣的文化做出了重大貢獻。不僅如此,太平山還擁有獨特的生態構成,隨著涼爽的氣候、沿海天氣模式和高海拔而演變。因此我們認為太平山是一座具有極大生態魅力的園區,讓遊客有機會體驗地熱活動、原始和次生森林、高山湖泊和其他自然景觀。
