Trees Part 9

The fruit stand vendors at Taiwan’s open markets love to point out that their peaches are from LaLa Mountain located in FuSing Township of TaoYuan County. The region is also famous because of LaLa Mountain Scenic and Nature Preservation Area where the red cedar forest was discovered only a few decades ago. Spend at least three hours climbing the elevated wooden trails. The most conspicuous giant trees in drastically different shapes are not only numbered but also labeled with their age, height and width. Giant tree No. 5, a visitor favorite and the oldest at 2,800 years, is nicknamed Bear’s Home because the base of its trunk is a cave. After inspecting all 22 “divine” trees along the 3,700-meter path, treat yourself to a scoop of refreshing peach ice cream in the nearby town.
