Landscape and Ecology Tour
Strange rocks and badlands experiencing the local customs
Travel with Jarwashing
Jarwashing was appointed the spokesperson for Kaohsiung tourism in December 2019, promoting Kaohsiung tourism resources by playing the role of a tour leader. Besides publishing several Kaohsiung travel notes, he also cooperates with the Tourism Bureau in launching interactive activities with fans, such as travel talks, Hamasing walking tour and a share talk at Kaohsiung International Travel Fair.
Jarwashing x Yanchao adventure
Yanchao is a remote mountainous region with narrow mountain roads. There are few visitors here, and the monkeys are afraid of strangers, which is different from Caishan’s “urban monkeys”. While wandering in the remote regions, I chanced upon numerous wonderful places known to few, not even to a local like me, and some places are not even found in the Google Map. These are often discovered while wandering aimlessly or in an expedition with an aim. As such, these “non-mainstream” and “not easily found” attractions are especially worth sharing.
As the spokesperson for Kaohsiung tourism, I would like to take the opportunity to let more people know that, besides the attractions in the “egg yolk region of Kaohsiung”, such as the famous Xizi Bay, the Pier-2 Art Center and Lotus Pond, there is also the uncontested beautiful Yanchao.
Wushanting Mud Volcano
This is Taiwan’s smallest nature reserve but yet has the highest density of mud volcano clusters.
Yangnyu Mud Pond
Yangnyu Mud Pond is a gentle and explicit “mud shield”. Its wide and low-lying vent is clear and visible, and it has a higher level of activity.
Old Yangnyu Mud Pond
The mirror-like lake surface clearly reflects the sky. Its frequency and sound are both higher than those of the earlier mentioned mud volcanoes.
Sun Valley, also known as Chang E Valley. This is a platform by the mountain road, where one can overlook the entire valley.
Qilinwei Earth God Temple
Qilinwei Earth God Temple is where the settlement originated, and legend has it that it is very effective.
The barren top of the mountain resembles a cock’s crest, hence the name, “Jiguan Mountain” (Cock’s Crest).
This is an ideal place in Yanchao for a leisure trip round the lake.
Siaogangshan Skywalk Park
Siaogangshan Skywalk Park features a skywalk where one can overlook the scenic Agongdian Reservoir and flatland.
