Gaomei Wetland



Gaomei Wetland located on the south of the mouth of Dajia River is a land mixed with both sand and soil textures and comes in 1,500 acres. That explains why it has complicated yet rich wetland ecology and possesses the largest group of Bolboschoenus planieulmis in Taiwan. Due to diverse geographical features, the species of its ecology is quite abundant. Every year around fall and winter, large flocks of migrating birds would come here for either short or long stay over the winter, serving as the best spot for bird-watching.

    We stayed on the bridge. The wind was super strong. It was an incredible experience. There wasn't much else to do. Our visit lasted about 20 minutes. Glad we made the pit stop though.
