Alishan Sunrise, Taiwan

Last year we visited Alishan and on the first day, we enjoyed a light drizzle and had the entire forest to our own. Read more here on our previous forest walk last year. This year, blessed with no rain, we had to share the forest with 2 large tour bus group which disturbed the forest’s tranquility and beauty with their loud noise.

We also missed the Cherry Blossom season in Alishan by almost 3 weeks and all that is left is on a tree or two.

Despite not having to enjoy a peaceful forest walk or the full bloom of Cherry Blossom flowers, we were truly blessed to enjoy clear sky to enjoy sunrise! Here are some photos to showcase a little of the actual magnificent view of the sunrise at Alishan.

Here’s a little tip! When catching the train, do get on the first trip and proceed to the last cabin! Because the last cabin is the cabin closet to the stairway towards the viewing platform and once you get off to the platform run to the front! There will be a guide there to tell you which angle will give you the best view as it varies from season to season!

We had to wake up really early at 3.40am to be ready for the first train at 4.30am. Look at my sleepy face without makeup on!

At some point in time, the sun is so bright that you just have to look away!

After watching the sunrise, there are some booths here selling hot french toast! The best after the cold long wait!
