Lala Mountain Nature Protection Zone
Speech(New Window) Online Map(New Window)

The former name of the Lala Mountain was Daguan Mountain. In 1973, a professor of Culture University discovered here a wide expanse of red cypress divine trees whose view is similar to that of the divine trees in Ali Mountain. The name of Lala Mountain has spread since then, and the mountain has attracted many tourists from various areas. In 1986, the government formally established a nature protection zone in Daguan Mountain. The scope of the nature protection zone covers the mountain areas near Balin on the Northern Cross-Island Highway.

In addition to cloud-reaching red cypress trees, the Taiwan yellow cypress trees in the zone there are also color-changing trees such as green maple trees and beech trees. In autumn when the weather turns cool, green leaves change into red, thus rendering the view even more poetic. To facilitate tourists, the forestry bureau has built a footpath for viewing landscapes. After entering the recreation zone, walk along the trail. You can see giant red cypress trees whose ages range from 500 years to 3,000 years. Among them are five giant trees about 2,800 years-old.

When it is mid-fall, pink, reddish purple, red and yellow trees are found. Taiwan is in a sub-tropical area and although there are fewer plants which change their colors in such a warm climate, more than 30 plants around the island do change their color, particularly in the higher mountains. Some of them are Acer serrlatum, Liquidambar formosana, Taiwan Red False cypress, Rhus trichocarpa and so on.

The maple trees that visitors tend not to recognize are Liquidambar formosana. To differentiate Liquidambar formosana and Rhus trichocarpa is that the leaves of the former have three splits, and the leaves of the latter type have five splits. Liquidambar formosana are not only suitable to be elegant shade trees but are also famous as the best material for growing mushrooms.
