Amuping Ginger Island(阿姆坪薑母島)
Amuping in Taiwanese language means “duck ground”. It is a river terrace of Dahan River on the right bank of Shihmen Dam. The area is said to be named after predecessor Lu A-Mu who first came to cultivate this land and raised ducks. Amuping used to attract numerous tourists on holidays for its natural forest and water. However, due to restrictions enacted on the source of water, the popularity as a tourist destination has slowly worn off, and it has now transformed into a tranquil secret getaway. The Eco Park nearby Amuping Parking Lot is a nice place to start off the journey. Strolling along the shaded gravel footpaths, the cheerful chirp of the birds and the elegantly moving egrets are truly mind-soothing. Then, take a boat trip around the lake praised as the “mini three gorges”. You will stop by attractions including Longchu Bay, Dreamy Grassland (Ernaishan), Shihxiuwan Waterfall, Ruins of Changxing Bridge and Lovers Island. The highlight of the boat trip is Ginger Island. Handmade driftwood artifacts made by the locals, bamboo shoots, oranges and pineapples are all worth buying. You can also try out some fried creek shrimp, fried pale chub and fried sweet potatoes. Last but not least, visiting the hundred-year-old Tudigong Temple will mark a peaceful end to the fun journey.
