Dongshih Forest

Posted Date:2017/03/23 4157

Introduction

Anchor
Dongshih Forest Garden is a low altitude forest home to a variety of animals and plants. It includes natural forest, man-made forest, pure forest and mixed forest. There are forests of cedar trees, tung oil trees, maple trees, Taiwan acacias and plum trees. In early spring, cherry blossom trees flourish in baby green. Fireflies sparkle like thousands of twinkling stars towards the end of spring. Then, all greeneries thicken in summer while tung oil trees bloom in snowy white and Hercules beetles celebrate on top branches. In fall, the mountains are colored by yellow tung oil leaves and red maple leaves. In winter, leafless branches create such desolate beauty.

    Beware of unwritten/unreasonable regulations before making reservations

    Traveler rating:1 2017-07

    You need to prepay 30% of room cost when you make a booking, and this is just the beginning. If you want to change from a higher rate room to a lower rate room on the same day, they won't refund the...

    螢火蟲非常多,但住宿待加強

    Traveler rating:3 2021-04

    東勢林場是觀賞螢火蟲最佳去處,而且又有很多DIY(包括手工皂及毛毛蟲),也有免費的綿花糖可吃,而園區為了鼓勵小朋友認識園區,還有小禮物送給小朋友,所以,很適合帶小朋友,但住宿的二人房小木屋,假日為2800元,空間非常小,小到讓人會住的很壓迫,待久都會覺得很不舒服,再加上廁所又很小,又很老舊,整個住起來非常不自在,再加上洗澡水會忽冷忽熱,所以,以後住宿一定要住遊客中心本棟新蓋的,價格沒差多少。
