Dasyueshan National Forest Recreation Area
This national forest recreation area is located at the back of the south-westerly main ridge of the Xueshan mountain range. From the high point of Xiao Xue Mountain, the ridge stretches to the southwest, including Anma Mountain, Chuanxing Mountain and Xiaolai Mountain, down to the Xiaolai Creek gorge at around 1000 meters in elevation. Due to encompassing different elevation zones the area has a richly diverse forest and has 218 plant species, with the hemlock spruce and Japanese Anisetree the main tree species. The warm, temperate, and frigid forest zones each have their own distinctive appearance. This area was a major logging center in earlier times.
