Chiayi County, Taiwan –


“Hero Slope”, the words engraved on the stone on the road side, is located at 32.2 kilometres on Chiayi County Highway No.122, which is also the starting point of Rueili Rueitai Historic Trail.

Rueitai Historic Trail with a total length of 5.2 kilometres is used to be the channel connected Rueili Village and Taihe Village that allowed both two villagers to trade their agricultural products. By 1999, under the effort of Chiayi Forestry Bureau, it has become a very suitable ecological hiking trail for both leisure and educational functions.

During the spring harvest, taking a stroll about 20 minutes from the entrance of Rueitai Historic Trail in bamboo woods, you can occasionally see bamboo shoots stuck out of the ground to remind people watching their steps carefully. Along the winding and narrow trail, nothing fascinating enough will catch your attention. Walking towards the first pavilion, you can get some rest and somehow you may notice something different from the previous views you have seen in the bamboo woods. Once you step out the forest, you will see entirely different and splendid scenery right in front of your eyes! A vast greenish tea garden field shining under the sun and blue sky gives people an astonishingly spectacular impression.

If you don’t search carefully, it is not quite easy finding the way into the tea garden. The three sides of the tea garden are surrounded by bamboo forests and the only unblocked one side is facing Dayaoshan Mountain. Gorgeous tea garden scenery and magnificent natural landscape forms into a beautiful painting that will take your breath away!

While taking a nice and slow pace in the tea garden, you can see hard-working tea workers picking tea leaves in an experienced way; sometimes, you can also hear the radio from a distance playing Taiwanese songs and people singing along. When you close your eyes, you can still feel the beauty of mountain scenery imprinted in your memory.

蔚然成畫 瑞太古道上柳暗花明的茶園風景

許展彰/嘉義縣

嘉義122縣道32.2K處,「英雄坡」三字刻印於路旁巨石之上。朱紅楷書提點「英雄」二字的浩然氣勢,這裡正是瑞里「瑞太古道」的步道起點。

  全長5.2公里的瑞太古道,舊時是為瑞里、太和兩座村莊挑送農產品的步道。1999年經林務局嘉義林區管理處維修整理,成為相當適合從事國民登山休閒活動的生態步道。

  時值春茶採收之際,自瑞太古道入口處沿長山步道段徐行約20分鐘,一路蜿蜒的步道只見孟宗竹林,偶見竹筍自地上探出頭來提醒人們小心腳步,並沒有太多變化的風景讓人略感興味索然。步行到第一座涼亭略事休息,左向隱隱可見一片有別於竹林的風景。暫出步道竹林向前走去,不一會兒天光灑落,一片開闊的茶園忽然現前,在陽光照耀下便猶如一片綠海,給人一種「柳暗花明」的驚奇與感動。

  放輕腳步踏進茶園裡,倘若沒有留心,還真不容易看到這片「柳暗花明」的茶園。ㄇ字型的地貌,三面相夾竹林於其中,唯一不見竹林的一面正對大窯山的茶山風景。茶城風景、青山巒疊、山雲相接,環目所視與眼下的茶園構織成最美麗的動人景致,美得令人幾乎忘卻呼吸。

  穿梭在茶園小徑之中,向更遠處尋去。茶園背山的另一側隱隱傳來收音機放送台語歌曲和此起彼落的人聲,正是一群採春茶的採茶女。身著花長衫、頭戴斗笠,一個個背著大大的竹簍熟練地彎腰採茶,自然地融入在這片茶山風情畫裡。

  閉上眼睛,用心感受這片不期而遇。瑞太古道裡長山步道段上的寧靜茶園,坐擁長山一隅的山城秀色,值得旅人細細品味流連。(攝影/許展彰)
