National Forest Recreation Areas
Outdoor recreation is gaining in popularity around the world. They also play an important role in sustainable development of the tourism industry. Taiwan is only 36,000 square kilometers in size, but nearly 60% of the island is covered by forests with rich and varied landscapes and natural resources, attesting to the unusual tenacity of life.
Tropical, subtropical, temperate, and subfrigid zone plants can all be found in Taiwan, fostering an equally diverse animal kingdom. The forest areas of Taiwan are also steeped in fascinating history and culture, adding another dimension to the forest recreation environment. The following forest recreation areas are currently open for public enjoyment in Taiwan:
