Hiking Tianshangshan: Viewing Tung Blossoms


Tianshangshan is 430 meters high and stretches across Sanxia, Xindian, and Tucheng. It overlooks far and wide and stands erect above all other peaks in the area. The area is famous for its glorious Tung tree blossoms that bloom from the end of April until early May, which we hope to see on this trip. The Taiwanese call it April or May snow because the falling blossoms that cover the area look like snow falling. During this hike we will visit the beautiful Chengtian Chan Temple, built by monks in 1951. It is a quiet and graceful place and a popular tourist spot. The hike is moderately strenuous with many stairs. The trail, paved with stone and wood is about 10K long (including 3K on the road) with 500 meters ascending. We recommend a reasonable level of fitness for this hike. Wear sturdy shoes with a good grip; bring water, snacks and sun/rain protection.
