Xitou Forest

Taiwan Highlight Xitou Forest

Between Sun Moon Lake and Alishan, lies this gem. It’s a valley surrounded by three mountains, it’s cool and the forest is lush and rich and did I mention it’s cool (16C). I especially liked the ‘Forest Trail’, where you’re amazed by hundreds of tall trees.
