Doulan Mountain Hiking Trail
Doulan Mountain Hiking Trail
Doulan Mountain has been regarded by the Amis and Puyuma peoples as a sacred mountain, a holy symbol and a worshipping site. Even though Doulan Mountain is only at an altitude of 1,190m, but the mountain is standing tall with a steep slope in a magnificent grandeur. Influenced by the humid oceanic air from the Pacific Ocean in the east, Doulan Mountain exudes a mysterious ambiance with clouds and mists surrounding the mountain throughout the year. The scene resembles a beautiful lady being enveloped and protected, so Doulan Mountain is also known as "Beauty Mountain". At the starting point of Doulan Mountain Hiking Trail, there is the Doulan Forest Farm. Once reaching the peak, visitors would find Taiyuan Basin, Tatiung Valley that is south of Chihshang, and Taitung Plains; and looking over towards the east, visitors would have a clear view of the Pacific Ocean, Green Island, and Orchid Island – making Doulan Mountain a great hiking destination and scenic spot.

In addition to citron daylily season, visitors can enjoy mountains of beautiful landscape in all four seasons – cherry blossoms in January and February, wild lilies in March and April, hydrangea in May through July, citron daylilies in August through October, apricot flower in November and December. Weather at Daylily Mountain varies widely; long hours of daylight provide superior criteria for plant growth – sugar apples, loquats, roselles, Taifong tea, Yu-he-bao lychees, and dragon fruit are also grown here, in addition to the various species of flower. Daylily Mountain offers abundant natural resources, creeks, waterfalls, high mountains, and gorges; the valleys here are greatly suitable habitats for fireflies, and nighttime every April ~ July would be the best timing for firefly watching.

Amis Harvest Festivals
Amis Harvest Festivals
Amis Harvest Festival is the tribe's grandest event, which takes place during every year's July and August. Commonly seen activities and ceremonies during the Harvest Festivals include the Coming of Age Ceremony, Guests Welcoming Dance, Harvest Dance, Cultivating Dance, and Fish Catching Ceremony; the overall process includes the three stages of "welcoming spirits", "feasting spirits", and "sending off spirits". In the early days, the Harvest Festivals spanned 8~15 days, and the events were more straightforward and were organized by men of different age groups – women were not allowed to participate. In the recent years, the old customs and prohibition have been modified. Besides shortening days of festivals and simplifying the religious ceremonies, racing, tug of war, archery and other competitive activities have been added to the events for a more entertaining atmosphere; and the general public is also now welcome to join the fun.
