In the geographic center of Taiwan lies a “forest treasury” in the mountains called Nantou. This interior part of Taiwan’s Central Mountain Range undulates with green and is aptly named Gaoshan (“high mountain”) County. Sun Moon Lake is synonymous with the landscape of Taiwan and here you can take a boat trip around lake and see the small island of Lalu in the middle of the lake. Ascend the Ci En Pagoda in Yushi Township and take in the whole vista of Riyue Lake. Qingjing Farm, which is beautiful and scenic at all seasons of the year, is an excellent place to have fun with the whole family. Slowly strolling through the vast grasslands, watching the sheep shearing demonstration while tasting fresh dairy products makes you feel like you are in the wide fields of Switzerland.
