Changhua County, Taiwan –


During the Aegiceras blooming season, it feels just like snowing in May under the branches. Particularly, after frequent occurrence of spring rains, the ground is covered with white petals just like placing yourself in the snowy scene of the north. Now you can appreciate the magnificent of Aegiceras blossom in May on Baguashan Mountain. Besides, while enjoying stunning Aegiceras blossom, you can also go on a hike on nearby mountain and hiking trails located in Chuanghua City, Yuanlin Township, Fenyuan Township and Nantou City.

Tiaoshuei Historic Trail with a total length of 2 kilometres begins from the left entrance of Sec. 1, No. 159 Yuancao Road. The entrance resembles to Japanese-style temple arch door. Those who drive a car should park their cars over here and walk along the track. Without going further, you can see a pavilion and two spring wells built next to the trail about hundred years ago. The water in the walls can only be seen during the monsoon. Currently the wells become a pool landscape covered with fallen Aegiceras petals.

Tiaoshuei Historic Trail, originally the narrow and winding pathway in Baguashan Mountain, is situated between Dajhu Village and Sitou Village in Fenyuan Township. In the early day, the traffic was rather not convenient; however, while seeking out a trench to ease the water supply issue, the local people accidentally found the Tiaoshuei Historic Trail, where water flowed ceaselessly all the year round. Tiaoshuei Historic Trail was constructed with both flood defence and leisure recreation functions and preserved by Sitou Village Community Development Association.

The charm of Aegiceras blossom along Tiaoshuei Historic Trail is unstoppable. Such as five branches of Aegiceras tree growing together called “Brotherhood”, lying-out yet thriving Aegiceras tree called “Lying Tree” and “Giant Tree” are quite interesting to watch!

According to the immigration history of Taiwan, Changhua Plain used to have many Hakka villages settled here. After a time, some of Hakka people could not even speak Hakka language anymore. This kind of specific group has an academic name known as “Fu-Lao Hakka”. However, some of ancient religious belief and daily life usage terms are still retained the traces of Hakka culture.

Around the time in May, Aegiceras blossom covered all over the mountains and hills along the Baguashan Mountain ridge, No. 139 Changhua County Highway can be seen. Welcome tourists come to experience the charm of Aegiceras blossom and the beauty of Hakka culture.

【景點】落雨雪花繽紛 芬園鄉挑水古道賞桐花趣

江柏樟/彰化縣

桐花樹枝上的桐花朵朵盛開,彷彿就像下在枝頭的五月雪!尤其在一連的春雨打落後,雪花繽紛,滿地的白色花瓣,就像置身於北國的情境,不用等到五月,八卦山山脈的桐花已經盛開,彰化市、員林鎮、芬園鄉、南投市的步道與登山步道,遊客除了爬山運動外,多了那浪漫的賞花趣。

  在芬園鄉的挑水古道位於員草路一段159號左側旁入口處進入,中油加油站附近,全長約2公里,入口處有仿日式神社拱門。賞花的民眾先將車子停於入口處的停車場,沿著步道往前不遠處,可看到涼亭,在步道旁有兩座百年前,芬園鄉先民取水所建的二口湧泉井,在雨季方可見井中之水,現為桐花水池造景,沿著古道兩旁的桐花已盛開,是賞花好時機。

  挑水古道介於彰化芬園鄉大竹村與溪頭村之間,隸屬於八卦山脈山麓間羊腸小徑,早期因道路交通不發達,當地先民為生活飲水問題,尋覓於八卦山脈山麓間,發覺此一兼具排洪的山澗溝渠,終年有泉水源源不絕流出。芬園鄉陳永忠鄉長表示,挑水古道兼具登山休閒與防洪等功能,所有整修維護都是由溪頭村社區發展協會維護的。

  芬園鄉挑水古道,桐花林美不勝收。有五株枝幹生長在一起的「兄弟同心」;有倒臥了卻還欣欣向榮的「臥桐」;有兩人才可以合抱的「巨桐」。此處的桐花伸手可及,容易親近,並已開花30%,正適合拍照宣傳。

  在台灣移民歷史,彰化平原有許多的客家庄,隨著時代的演進,客家庄裡的客家人隨著周圍的族群而融合,甚至不會說客家語言,這群人在學術被稱為「福佬客」,但在平原三山國王廟的信仰中心,日常生活中習慣用詞,或多或少保留客家文化痕跡。

  每年約在五月前後,在八卦山脈嶺縣139沿途縣道,沿途裡滿山滿谷,滿山遍野的油桐花尤其在下過春雨後落花繽紛,遊客可在登山古道賞花趣,也體驗客家文化在彰化縣的大自然之美。(攝影/江柏樟)
