Hualien County—

With an altitude of 800 to 1,000 meters, Liu Shi Dan Shan (6,000 Catties Mountain) is situated in the northeast of Fuli town. It is one part of western mountains of Haian Range(Coastal Range) the same as Chih Ke Mountain. It also has 300 hectare of tiger lily garden and becomes one of the important place of tiger lily production.

“The 6,000 Catties Mountain”, what a strange name! It is said that the rice harvests were quite good during the ancient time. There were 6,000 catties averagely each morgan (0.9699 hectare), so the residents nearby called the mountain in a fun way “the 6,000 Catties Mountain”. Since 1971, the farmers began to grow the tiger lilies and had great harvest. The tiger lily became a new popular crop in Liu Shi Dan Shan.

From the end of August to the beginning of September, the tiger lilies bloom most beautifully. The blossoms are all over the mountain. There is a strong contrast between green grass and orange tiger lilies, just like a picture. During this period, people always gather here for the flower-watching.

Besides, situated on the top of the eastern tiger lily garden (an attitude of 964 meters), Wang You Pavilion (literally meaning to forget worries when stay at this pavilion) is the best spot to overlook the tiger lily garden. These beautiful sights will make you carefree and joyous. You can even see the spectacular Central Mountain Range, Lun Tian River, and Siouguluan River. Also, you will enjoy watching stars here where is no light pollution.


【景點】六十石山 每年八、九月金針花開滿整片山非常壯觀
【大台灣旅遊網TTNews記者劉立文/花蓮縣報導】

六十石山位於花蓮縣最南端的富里鄉東北方,與赤柯山同屬海岸山脈的西側山陵,海拔約在800至1000公尺之間,這裡有達300公頃的金針種植地,是台灣金針的重要產地之一。

  「六十石山」好奇怪的名字,據說因為這裡早期種植稻穀擁有相目不錯的收成,大概每一甲地都會有六十石的穀子,所以附近的居民就戲稱這裡為「六十石」。在民國六十年也開始種植金針花,因為收成不錯,金針花便成為六十石山的新寵兒。

  到了每年的8月初至9月底,這裡的金針花海特別漂亮,滿山遍野的金針花群放爭豔,一片片以萱草用心編織的綠毯上也為橙黃色的金針花形成了強烈的對比色,好像一幅畫般的呈現於眼前,因此只要在這個時期就會湧入大批的賞花人潮,為的就是要目睹這難得一見的壯觀美景。

  另外在園區的東側至高點〈海拔約964公尺〉有一個忘憂亭,這裡是眺望整個六十石山金針園區的最佳觀賞據點,從忘憂亭往下看,整個山頭的美景盡入眼簾,頓時讓人感到心曠神怡,在這裡的視野相當遼闊,除了可遠望中央山脈,還能看到崙天溪、秀姑巒溪的壯麗美景,不僅如此,在這裡因為沒有路燈光害的干擾,是夜賞星空的絕佳景點。
