Chiayi County, Taiwan –


Taking a holiday away the hubbub from the city and taking a nice and relaxing stroll in mountain trails can be a good idea of loosen up. Located in Alishan Rueifong region, there is a newly built trail with the total length of approximately 2600 meters along the Jhukeng River valley. The gap between the highest and the lowest is little, which is very suitable for hiking and morning walk. The round-trip only takes about an hour.

While hiking in mountain, you can appreciate the magnificent beauty of mountain rock walls, vertical depth of valleys and running waterfalls along the trail. Indulging yourself in the Mother Nature, you can feel the fresh and gentle air breeze touching your skin.

It is said that Jhukeng River Trail was once an ancient path that the ancestors used to travel back and forth between towns and mountains in the earliest day. Over the past few years, Alishan National Scenic Area Headquarter and local residents have made a great effort in turning Jhukeng River Trail into a beautiful tourism spot. Besides, Jhukeng River Trail is not so much a challenge for beginners; therefore, they can enjoy the fun of hiking and walking on the wobbling bridge with ease.

At the end of the trail, you are about to see the peak and one of the most spectacular waterfalls - “Longdong Waterfall”. When the water flows downstream, people will be mesmerized by the dazzling transparent water curtain and the rumbling sound. If you would like to cool down a bit, you can try to run quickly through the waterfall or get some rest on the poolside.

漫步山林、體驗芬多精 瑞峰竹坑溪步道

郭嘉琳/嘉義縣

趁周休二日走進山林,遠離都市塵囂,呼吸新鮮空氣、散步在林道間,不啻為一個放鬆身心的好選擇,嘉義阿里山區瑞峰地區有一條沿著竹坑溪谷興建的步道,全長大約2600公尺,高低落差不大,適合成年人清晨散步健行,來回大約一鐘頭的時間。

  此步道沿線可以欣賞美麗的斷層沉積岩山脈,垂直深入山谷中的鬼斧神工,以及奔流直瀉的大小瀑布,清晨身處其中,深呼吸調整步伐,可以感受清新的空氣,連土壤都散發淡淡的芬多精香味,令人心曠神怡。

  竹坑溪步道據說最早是先民挑木炭變賣的古道,這幾年經阿里山國家風景區管理處和在地居民的努力下,已成為一條來到瑞峰旅遊不錯的景點,步道連接到龍宮瀑布,路途由緩而陡,階梯忽高忽低,但對初學者來說挑戰不高,大約每十分鐘可走到不同方式興建的便橋,橋面會隨著行走小小的搖擺晃動,步道環境綠意濃濃,也可欣賞到山中不一樣的峽谷風情。

  步道後如看到飛翔的燕子,恭喜你已經到達瑞峰最壯觀的瀑布之一「龍宮瀑布」,水流切割出的凹壁,需稍微低頭彎腰通過,趣味十足,當大水流順流而下,形成白色透明的水濂洞,隆隆水聲充滿魄力,您可與朋友在旁稍做休息,想清涼一下的朋友更可以快速通過瀑布,讓皮膚接觸冰涼的山泉水,解放你的身心靈。(攝影/洪榕)
