“Shan” means mountain in Chinese. A-Li Mountain is the centerpiece of the Alishan National Scenic Area. The area is massive and offers much more than a single hike up to the mountain’s peak. In all, the area is a natural wilderness preserve clocking in at 415 square kilometers, and produces Taiwan’s internationally-renowned Alishan tea.
The mountain area holds a fantastic reputation in the minds of the Taiwanese, famous for such pleasant things as idyllic sunrises, high-quality tea, spring cherry blossoms, hiking trails, ancient forest and much, much more.
Daily vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner are included, except lunch/dinner on the free day in the city. Lunch will take place during the day activities across the entire Alishan National Scenic Park area. You will have the chance to try some of the Taiwan Aborigines cuisines (vegan) as well as the local Taiwanese delicacies.
Things To Do
Blessed with abundant rain and mist-covered peaks all year round, Alishan is home to the rich forests of precious trees. Some of the famous trails are the Giant Tree Trail, Fenqihu Forest Trail, Eryanping Trail and Sakura Trail. The landscape here changes dramatically from season-to-season. A trip to Alishan is always a soothing one. As you hike along the winding forested trail, enjoy a natural forest bath, breathing in phytoncides released from the natures and taking in negative ions to relax and refresh your bodies and souls. At the end of the trail, you will find the peace, solitude and tranquility of the outdoors.
Alishan Tea Plantation
Alishan Oolong Tea is the perfect introduction to Taiwan’s acclaimed high mountain oolongs. Grown in the lofty heights of between 1,000 and 2,000 meters, the tea is famous for its outstanding aroma and flavour, boasting fresh notes of spring flowers. As Alishan tends to be wet and cold all year round, it happens to provide the perfect conditions for tea production. The fluctuations in temperature between day and night result in tea trees growing at a slow rate, accumulating more flavor. Their leaves turn out to be surprisingly soft and make some very fragrant tea that will lift your mood and stimulate your senses with every sip. The soothing and invigorating Alishan Oolong Tea is no doubt an everyday must, whether as a perfect first drink of the day or as a lovely afternoon treat.
Sunrise Yoga on the Mountain
As the golden hued rays of sunrise break over the mountains, everything is vibrantly brought to life by a warm touch of morning sunshine, and myriads of mist-shrouded peaks peek out from a sea of cotton-like clouds. Inhale deeply and exhale gently. Fill your lungs with the fresh morning air, let the sunshine caress through your fingers, arms and face, feel the flow and energy gently transmit through your entire body. When the mountains are waking up from their sleep, take a quiet moment to celebrate beauty, joy and tranquility.
