After the military ban was lifted, the mysterious Back Cihu finally unveiled its unspoiled beauty; it is now open to the public. Back Cihu is a small lake along which President Chiang Kai-Shek would stroll or row a boat with the late first lady Chiang. After entering Back Cihu Park from the side gate of Front Cihu Park, tourists will start a 2-kilometer walk over a small hill. In addition to the fascinating scenery along the trail, the commander’s office, bunkers, checkpoint gates, and offices left from the Era of Martial Law are definitely worth visiting. 

Since 2009, Back Cihu has been open to the public by the Taoyuan City Government, and 5 official residences have been retained to reconstruct the history of Back Cihu and President Chiang’s family life, as well as their living space. 

The Park contains a wide variety of fauna and flora, including giant woods spiders, birds and frogs. Strolling along the forest trails shaded by Taiwan incense cedars, tourists can appreciate not only the reflection of the scenery in the lake, but also a presidential leisure activity in Back Cihu.

    Houcihu is a trail in the hills near Daxi. It is a very pleasant walk. You will have a guide. Unfortunately, English is almost entirely lacking. You will probably see some historic sights connected to Chiang Kai-shek. Chinese people call this sort of outing "pa shan" or "mountain climbing," although they are more hills than mountains Anyone of average fitness can handle this outing.

    有著神秘面紗的後慈湖.因為軍事單位的解禁.讓這一個世外桃源得以供諸於世.這兒原本是老蔣公與夫人散步划船的小湖.園區步道由慈湖側門進入後.越過小丘陵.約兩公里路程.沿途景觀迷人.還有戒嚴管制時期所留下來的指揮所...

    參訪後慈湖需參加導覽團,需提前線上報名,從前慈湖有接駁公車搭到百吉隧道口,再步行約1公里抵達後慈湖園區入口,然後再循步道進入園區,全程有導覽老師帶隊參觀,除了觀賞自然生態外,也可聽聞許多歷史故事,算是一段不錯的體驗

    在導覽先生的帶領下來到這美麗的後慈湖,一路上蟲鳴鳥叫,風景宜人,配上陣陣的涼風和炎熱的氣候,度過令人愉快的假期😊這個地方值得未曾去過的人們可利用閒暇時間去走走, 體驗一下老蔣總統生活的歷史😄
