The Shilong Forest Ground is located in the Alishan Ridge, Chiayi County.
It features a mysterious subtropical broad-leaved forest that covers more than 30 hectares of land.
The expansive forest ground is above the sea level between 300 and 600-some meters. What truly makes it special is that, every 500 meters above the sea level, there is a stone sculpture marking the height and an explanatory text of the local ecology.
There are more insects at the mountain area, please bring insect repellent or wear long sleeve. During summers, afternoon thunderstorms are common in mountainous areas. Please be sure to bring rain gears. It's wet and slide on rain season, please watch your step.
