A large stretch of southern Taiwan’s interior falls within the Siraya National Scenic Area. The scenic area was founded late in 2005, but it seems like the kind of place that should have attracted notice much earlier. All of its 95,000 plus hectares are stunning, but this is far more than a collection of scenic spots. There’s a bit of everything here, from strange geology to indigenous culture, historic relics, and of course, a great deal of unspoiled nature. Here, a long list of events and goings-on follows the changing of the seasons and makes every part of the year special. Here with us this week to share what the area has to offer is one of the officials in charge, Secretary Shih Tsung-hung.
