Basianshan Forest Recreation Area

Posted Date:2021/08/13 2014

Introduction

Anchor
Basianshan Forest Recreation Area boasts lavish forests and cozy weather. Abundant in natural resources and ecology, it was among the three largest forestry areas in Taiwan during the Japanese colonial period.
The area was once home to many lumbermen at the peak of forestry industry. It was in fact a well-functioning community with a school, a hotel and a  shrine. Hence, the area is now left with an intriguing  forestry culture.
There are three forest trails in Basianshan Forest Recreation Area. Beginning from the parking lot of Basian Villas, the first trail climbs uphill along Shiwen River. The second trail goes down the staircase to the dam, and the third trail passes through the woods and a bamboo forest to the remains of the Japanese shrine and the elementary school. Whichever route you pick, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the river, observe the nature and immense in a forest bath. If you feel like taking on a bigger physical challenge, you can hike Basianshan or Xinshan.
When leaving Basianshan Forest Recreation Area, you can also stop by Guguan nearby for a hot spring bath and taste a special local refreshment, white pine juice ice.

    Too bad the buses only go on weekends and only two trips per day. An excellent half day spent trekking to the beautiful bamboo forest. Also the "celestial sounds" trail is a little known trail which...

    林場遺跡,適合半日遊

    Traveler rating:4 2020-08

    八仙山森林遊樂區曾經是台灣主要的林場,距離谷關不遠,停止伐木後轉型成森林遊樂區。園區內以八仙山莊及生態池為中心,往上是森林步道,可以依據自己的體力、時間選擇是合的長度、難度。我們選擇半日遊行程,經過茂密翠綠的竹林走到佳保台,這裏還有一小段林業鐵路遺跡,以及展示用的運木火車。八仙山莊往下沿著十文溪谷是天籟步道,可以走到十文溪、佳保溪合流處再折返。八仙森林遊樂區開放遊憩面積不大,雖然沒有阿里山那麼多奇...

    夏季避暑的森林遊樂區

    Traveler rating:4 2020-10

    這是一個中海拔的森林遊樂區,離台中市都會區大約1個小時的路程,非常適合夏日出外踏青避暑,(台中市民擕身份證件有門票優惠),園區內有多條森林步道可供健行,是夏日的不錯旅遊景點。

    景緻優美

    Traveler rating:4 2019-11

    位處谷關附近,除前往八仙山主峰之外,園區內步道不長且難度不高,大約半天可以走完,適合全家,相對遊客人數不多,也因此多了一分額外的幽靜閒適,園區內亦有八仙山莊大小木屋等提供住宿,11月初溫度舒適(11-25度左右),群山環抱,值得造訪。
