Alishan's Sea of Clouds
Alishan is known for it's beautiful views of sharp rocky peaks jutting out of a sea of fluffy clouds. In the morning you will be enthralled by this incredible view as you recognise it as it is said these cliffs are what inspired traditional Chinese ink painters in their realistic portrayals of mountains shrouded in mist.
The forests of Alishan, with their wonderful old cedar trees and pines, present a sharp contrast to the tropical palms and banana plants of the plains around Chiayi.
A beautiful volcanic island surrounded in clear blue water is what you will find at Green Island. Green Island was once known as Huoshautao whose literal meaning is "fire-burning island."
