OpeningOpen all year round


Along the Xindian River is a bend that is at a near right angle. This area is called “Quchi.” It is blessed with rich natural ecology and riverside scenery. Visitors have the opportunity to walk along Quchi’s ancient trail where ecology, history and culture converge. It makes for an excellent intellectual journey. Those who want to get even closer to nature can visit the gorgeous Meihua and Yanzi lakes or Mengmeng Valley. To see history, there is the site of Taiwan’s first hydroelectric power plant, the Guishan Hydroelectric Plant. There is also the baroque-style Hsiaocukeng Power Plant, and the Japanese-era Wenshan Farm. And for a taste of culture, there is the Quchi Natural Ecology Arts Educational Park or the Taiwan Electric Industry Museum.
