Alishan Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Alishan is known throughout Taiwan for its beautiful morning views of jagged peaks jutting out of a sea of fluffy clouds. Just about every visitor to Alishan will make the short train journey on up the mountain to the prime sunrise-viewing location of Chushan. By the way the sunset at this popular resort is also pretty amazing. Alishan was first discovered during the early years of the Japanese occupation (1895-1945) for its abundant cypress forests. These cypress forests are also worth to explore.
