Notice for Taiwan Tourist Shuttle – Xitou route passengers:
Originally, University Pond was created to keep logs moist. Later, the pond became the representative landmark of Sitou. The pond is frog heaven in spring and summer.
From the Pavilion, you have a good view of the topography of Sitou. Looking north, the peak on the right is Mt. Phoenix; the peak on the left is Mt. Neshupe.There is a huge boulder inside the Giant Tree. Although the center is mostly rotted out and hollow, the giant tree lives on, a testament to the tenacity of life.This is the first sky walk in a forest in Taiwan. The walkway is 180 m long and 22.6 m (that's seven stories!) above the ground.
The green forest canopy cleanses the air naturally and provides habitat and shelter for epiphytes, tree-dwelling animals, insects and fungi. From the walkway, you can experience life in the treetops and observe how it changes with the four seasons.
The Giant Rock was originally part of the rock formation on the cliff. During the big earthquake on September 21, 1999, the rock broke off the cliff and tumbled to its present position. Its dimensions are 18m x 15m x 12m, its volume is 540 m3 and it weighs 1300 tons. The base of the Giant Rock has been reinforced. Now it is symbolic of the 9/21 earthquake at Sitou.
The founder built this Monster Village to show his respect on Mother Nature. This Japanese style village sure brings the time back to the history of Japanese occupying Taiwan. The mascot of the village tells us that to not forget those rare animals that were once living in this forest. This extraordinary Monster Village has been Xitou’s top attraction spot for many years.
