Alishan National Forest Recreation Area is located in Alishan Township, Chiayi, covering an area of 1400 hectares with the main tourism spot locating at about 2,200 meters high above sea level. It is cloudy mid-elevation temperate climate with an average annual temperature 10.6 ℃ and the annual rainfall is up to 4,000 mm. There are 209 raining days and 244foggy days on average. The heavily wet weather contribute the outstanding forest and climate landscape such as Alishan sunrise, sea of clouds, afterglow, forest, railways which count to the five famous sightseeing spots known internationally.
Fencihu owes its existence to the Forest Railway. At 1405m above sea level, it's very close to the half-way point between Chiayi and Alishan. Back in the old logging days Fencihu was the major center for repair and for maintenance on the railroad. For this reason, the population of about 800 is almost entirely Han Chinese, many of whom are Hakka (the Hakka people have always had an affinity for working on the railroad).
These days, the equipment mostly gets serviced in Chiayi and Fencihu's role has diminished, but there are hints of the town's former glory in the Train Depot
