Jhushan, bamboo forest covers all over the mountain, which is a really lovely and poetic name. Jhushan Township is one of the earliest developed townships in Nantou County. Apart from possessing a beautiful name, Jhushan is also famed for the beauty of its bamboo forests.

Taiwan’s subtropical climate makes the day hot and rainy most of the time. Due to the special characteristics of the local environment, that makes Taiwan an ideal place to grow bamboo. At present, the bamboo forest in Jhushan region covers an area over 10,000 hectares. Bamboo can be described as a ubiquitous plant that can almost be seen in the countryside and field.

There are about 2,000 species around the world, yet there are over 20 species throughout Taiwan. Moso bamboo, Makino bamboo, Taiwan giant bamboo, giant timber bamboo, etc. are the most commonly seen species in Jhushan region that can be found in a wide range of altitudes from over hundreds meters to 2,800 meters above sea level. Bamboo can be said that it is one of the most important crops in Jhushan.

Jhushan: 竹山




【自然】清風送爽 竹山竹林之美

范綱武/南投縣

  蒼蒼綠竹林,氤氳微雨晴,
  落葉青苔落,飛鳥戀舊林。
  曲徑通幽處,雲煙忽時散,
  青石新滴雨,行人可言歸。

  竹山,遍佈山野之中的竹林,很美的地名。這座南投縣最早開發的鄉鎮,除了擁有美麗的地名外,那滿山遍野的竹林之美,更是稱羨全台的自然美景。

  台灣地處亞熱帶,氣候高溫多雨,適合竹類的生長與繁殖,因此竹子可以說是一種常見的植物,幾乎在鄉村、野外都可以看見竹子的蹤影,全世界竹子約有二千種,而台灣有二十種,常見的有孟宗竹、桂竹、麻竹、綠竹等等,其中以孟宗竹和麻竹佔多數,而竹山地區則以孟宗竹、麻竹、桂竹更是產量豐富,竹林面積在台灣可說數一數二,是竹山重要的作物之一。 

  竹山舊稱「水沙連」,1920年設置竹山郡林圯埔,到了日治時代改稱竹山,1946年才正式稱為「竹山鎮」。竹山地區因地形、氣候、及降雨量等條件均適合竹林生長,一直以來即以盛產竹林聞名,竹類繁殖形成的良好林相稱冠全台。此外,竹山地區地形特殊,竹林面積超過一萬公頃,全鎮海拔從百餘公尺到二千八百公尺都有竹林景觀,因此竹林會隨山形高度的不同而產生不同竹林生態之美。

  沿著產業道路,都可見道路兩旁綠意盎然的竹林隨風搖曳,綿延數百公尺甚至數公里的筆直孟宗竹,頂部尾端延續連成幽美的綠色隧道,尤其是午後時分,陽光透過竹葉如流金般地灑落一地,漫步林間,只覺清風送爽、滿面愜意,令人心曠神怡。遊客可以沿著大鞍、鹿谷或是溪頭地區的產業道路,都可以欣賞到獨樹一幟的竹林風情。

  值得一提的是,由於竹子種類多、面積大,因此四季均能出產不同之竹筍,如麻竹筍、桂竹筍、冬筍等等,不但是竹山重要的特產,用竹筍做成的筍乾、筍絲、醬筍等等,還有各種竹筍大餐,更是來竹山不可以錯過的美食。
