Ali Mountain Range
Ali Mountain (or Alishan, ā lǐ shān 阿里山), located in the northeast part of the Jiayi County (or Chiayi, jiā yì xiàn 嘉义县) in Taiwan Province, is actually the general name of the eighteen hills including Zhu Hill (zhù shān 祝山) and Tower Hill (tǎ shān 塔山) which is the highest peak of Ali Mountain with the height of 2,663 meters. The scenic area is famous for its “five rare sites” including the Sunrise (rì chū 日出), the Ali Mountain Forest Railway (dēng shān tiě lù 登山铁路), Alishan scared tree (ā lǐ shān shén shù 阿里山神树), the Grand Sea of Clouds (yún hǎi 云海), and the Flamboyant Cherry Blossom (yīng huā 樱花). All of these wonders and beauties make the Ali Mountain a vital tourist destination for the tourists, and there is a saying that the one who does not visit the Ali Mount cannot experience and enjoy Taiwan Province really.

Sun Moon Lake

Sun Moon Lake
The Sun Moon Lake (rì yuè tán 日月潭), located in the middle of Taiwan, with an elevation of 748 meters above sea level, is the only natural big lake in Taiwan (tái wān 台湾). The southern part of Lalu Island (lā lǔ dǎo 拉鲁岛) is shaped like a new moon, and the northern part is shaped like a sun; hence the name Sun Moon Lake. Sun Moon Lake sits at an altitude of 762m in the mountains of Nantou County (nán tóu xiàn 南投县), in central Taiwan. With good weather year-round, accessible sights and tons of outdoor activities to offer, it’s not surprising it's one of Taiwan's most renowned tourist destinations.
