A high mountain bog formed in the aftermath of the catastrophic 921 earthquake when a landslide altered drainage patterns, forming a small lake and drowning part of the existing forest. At an elevation of 1,600 meters, it is often shrouded in thick fog, imbuing it with an eerie mystique, so people call it “Lotus Forest” Because the root of China fir were immersed for years, causing it to wilt and turn white, and the tourist see this special feature as an tourist attraction, adding a different sense of beauty and sorrow. Located 2 km in front of Sun-Link-Sea Forest and Nature Resort, and there’s a bus stop here, then you can walk up through industrial road for about 30 minutes, or take the shuttle bus.
