Lion's Head Mountain was rated as a provincial scenic area in 1993, and its scope includes Lion's Head Mountain, Emei Lake, Wuzhi Mountain, and Beipu Area. Wuzhi Mountain has an attractive forest and several trails. Emei Lake is very beautiful and has a suspension bridge called the "Emei Bridge." The Beipu cold spring has a large water volume and the Suilian Cave is deeply hidden in the mountain area. Lion's Head Mountain has traditional Hakka culture and boisterous festivals. Agricultural and forest specialties include Eastern Beauty Tea, Persimmon Cake, Three Bay Pear, Hakka rice, Lei Tea and trout.

Ever since the late Ching Dynasty, the temples and caves of Lion's Head Mountain and Mt. Wuzhi have been so famous that they were listed among the 12 most enchanting scenes in Taiwan. This scenic area encompasses the townships of Beipu, Emei, and Zhudong in Hsinchu County and the townships of Sanwan and Nanzhuang in Miaoli County. Located between the Provincial Highway No. 3 road system and the Xueba National Park system, this region covers an area of 24,221 hectares and is rich in natural (cold springs, forest and lakes) and ecological resources as well as notable cultural attractions, including temples and historical artifacts of the Hakka people and the aboriginals (the Atayal and Saisiat tribes). Since its establishment in 2001, the Tri-Mountain National Scenic Area Administration has worked to develop a high-quality tourist region focusing on naturism, education, ecology, and sustainability. Some of the promotional events for tourism development to date include lifestyle and historical tours; exploration of the traditional culture of the Hakka people; discovery of the mysteries of the Saisiat Tribe's Sacrifice to the Short Spirits; a river ecology tour; a tour of the natural habitats of insects; and a tour of mining and unique industries.
