Lalashan Sacred Trees (拉拉山巨木群)
－The only one in Northern Taiwan! 75 hectares of giant trees more than one thousand years old.
－Go forest bathing among Formosan cypress and Formosan Hinoki trees to absorb the refreshing phytoncide.
Lalashan is the former name of Daguanshan. It became known comparable to Alishan for the massive number of sacred Taiwan red cypress trees found in 1973 by professors of Chinese Culture University. Since then, it has been a popular tourist attraction.
In 1986, the government officially listed Daguanshan as “Lalashan Nature Reserve” which encompasses Shangbaling mountain area of the Northern-Cross. The reserve is home to towering red cypresses, yellow cedars as well as Acer serrulatums and beeches that turn from green to red in autumn.For visitors to more easily explore the reserve, the Forestry Bureau has built scenic trails leading to giant red cypresses that are 500 to 3,000 years old. Among all, tree no.5 is the oldest sacred tree that dates 2,800 years.

Educational, nature and healthyThere are a number of scenic routes and walks with this nature reserve. There are farms, walking trails, cafe and restaurants. Moreover there are quite a number of bed and breakfast or family hostels within the area. You can book a bed and breakfast and spend 3 to 4 days and drive and walk around the nature reserve
FreshWorth visiting even though we only managed to view 4 gigantic trees as a section of the walk was closed to visitors because of the typhoon a few months back. Air was very fresh and the walk was easy. Such magnificent views of the matured trees and fresh air. Not many visitors as it was not the peak time to go which was fine.
Sacred forest of Lala ShanCool, crisp mountain air. Grand old ancient trees, some of them are centuries old standing dead trees, hence the name sacred trees. Waterfalls. Easy trail for walking. Saw a group of seniors hiking their way here. There's a small visitor information centre here. However, due to typhoon destruction, inner part of the forest is currently not accessible to the public.
Nice and relaxing environmentNice and relaxing environment with views of river, mountain and the big trees. A recommended getaway from the busy and hectic city centre. A great place to look at Sakura trees too.
