While we were at Xi-tou, we went to the A-li mountain area for one day. A-li mountain has the highest peak in Taiwan. (There are about 25 peaks in the area above 2000 meters.) It is now a national park. We were there to visit just a few of the famous spots nearby Xi-tou, such as the God tree, a large tree which has a very old history. We did not go, this time, to see the famous sun rise and to visit the other peaks, which we had done before and would do later on other trips.
