Dasyueshan National Forest Recreation Area International Bird Race

The Dasyueshan Forest Road (formerly called forest road no. 200), the main road running through the park, begins in Taichung County's Dongshih downtown area. As the road meanders and snakes upward, it passes through the Dasyueshan Village at kilometer 12 to 18. Because the aquatic environment at the side of the mountain has been well protected by the residents who live here, the ecology is complex and natural. Each year in April and May, fireflies take flight all around, filling the sky with points of light. At kilometer 23.5 of the forest road is the Forestry Bureau's Dongshih Forest Area Administrative Center, where there is a birdwatching platform for tourists. When winter comes, the nuts of the mountain tung trees (Idesia polycarpa) around the platform ripen; this attracts flocks of mountain birds which feed on them. At kilometer 35 is the ticket station, where you enter the park, and here also is the intersection of the end of the Yuanzui to Siaolai trail (which begins at Dasyueshan Forest Road kilometer 27) with the trailhead of the Siaolai to Siaosyueshan section of the National Trail (which ends at the Siaosyueshan Hostel). Continuing on further, at kilometer 41 is the Chuansingshan Nursery, where high-elevation coniferous seedlings are raised for use in reforestation, as well as the current location of the Forestry Bureau's Anmashan Work Station. The terrain at the former nursery is higher, so the views are good. You can see across the Dajia River valley to Basianshan. Deep in the interior, the new Tourist Service Center and Anmashan Hostel are at kilometer 43, which have exhibits, and provide services like tourist information, interpretive guidance, food, and lodging.

At kilometer 48, there is about a 1-kilometer trail the goes to an observation platform at 2600 meters in elevation, where the topography juts out. In addition to overlooking the Dajia River and the downstream reaches of the Da'an River plain, this is the best spot for broad vistas of distant mountain peaks on all sides, like Baigudashan, the Syueshan Range, to the far-distant Yushan Range and Central Mountain Range. In winter, these peaks are sometimes blanketed in white snow. At the end of where you can drive a car on the Dasyueshan Forest Road at about kilometer 49 is the Siaosyueshan Hostel, from which you can look down on the Dajia River valley. With the open view, at night you can see the lights as far away as the cities of Miaoli and Taichung. You can take the trail system to the famous attractions of the lake, Tienchih, and the Syueshan sacred trees.

The park is separated into four sections along the Dasyueshan Forest Road: at kilometer 35 is the ticket station, at kilometer 41 is the Chuansingshan area, at kilometer 43 is the Dasyueshan Tourist Service Center and Anmashan Hostel, and at kilometer 49 are the Siaosyueshan Hostel. Each area has its own self-guided trail systems, and tourists can choose to visit the various sights depending on their own preferences for birdwatching or exercising and their fitness level. As far as lodging and food service within the park, including the Tourist Service Center, Dasyueshan Hostel, Siaosyueshan Hostel, and cabins, there is altogether space for 200 guests; but if you desire lodging and food, you should make advance reservations.

The Dasyueshan Forest Recreation Area is deep within the mountains, and can only be reached by the Dasyueshan Forest Road. The extent of the park is vast, and there are great distances between scenic points. The most convenient method for tourists is to take a tour bus in and out of the park, followed by driving your own car. After arriving in a particular area, you can walk to each scenic spot. If you do not have your own transportation, then you can use the Fengyuan Bus Company which runs a tourist bus here every Saturday and Sunday. It leaves on those days at 8:00 am from Taichung, passes through Fengyuan and Dongshih, and takes the Dasyueshan Forest Road to reach the park. It passes the ticket station at kilometer 35, Anmashan Hostel at kilometer 43, and the Siaosyueshan Hostel and Tourist Service Center at kilometer 49 where it stops. It takes 1~2 hours when there are no delays. Then the same bus departs from Siaosyueshan Hostel at 3:00 pm. Eighteen people can ride on this bus, it only makes the trip on Saturdays and Sundays, and you must make advance reservations.
