The Alangyi Historic Trail connects Hsuhai village, Pingtung with Nantian village, Taitung. Previously it was hard for visitors to enter due to strict control which is why it has been able to retain complete and rich ecological resources and is known as the most mysterious corner in Taiwan.
Because of the opening of the South-Link Highway Expansion Project, this mysterious old road caught national attention again. In this issue of Discover Taiwan, we will take you to the beautiful and mysterious valley.
Alangyi Historic Trail was one of the eight roads connecting eastern and western Taiwan constructed in the Tongzhi era of the Qing Dynasty to facilitate transportation. After 150 years, it is the best-preserved ancient trail in the country.
Once again under the national spotlight, strict restrictions on the daily capacity are introduced in order to protect the trail, avoid excessive development and damage to its ecology due to tourism.
But, you must register with authorities to explore the most mysterious ancient trail.
