Tianchih and Chang Ching Temple –The center part of the Southern Cross-Island Highway
No visitors traveling the Southern Cross-Island Highway should miss a stop at Tianchih (天池) and Chang Ching Temple (長青祠), because they are the central part of the highway.
 
Seeing the face of Matsu in Kaohsiung County
In 1994, a lady in Florida made herself a grilled cheese sandwich. She took a few bites, but before finishing it she noticed what appeared to be the face of the Virgin Mary imbedded in the toast.
 
Hiking the Jhongjhihguan Historic Trail
Jhongjhihguan Historic Trail (中之關步道) is a must-see trail for visitors to the South Cross Island Highway. It is only three and half kilometers long and is a small part of the Guanshan Historic Trail (關山越嶺道).
 
A gourmand's visit to Meinong
The lepidopteran inhabitants of the Yellow Butterfly Valley have yet to emerge, you already have a hand-painted oil-paper parasol, and disused tobacco-curing barns hold no interest for you.
 
The monster trees of Taguanshan
Taguanshan (塔關山) is one of Taiwan's most accessible 3,000-plus-meter-high peaks. Located right beside the highest stretch of the Southern Cross-Island Highway (南部橫貫公路), it can be scaled in just under two hours.

Enchanted forest of Tengjhih
Standing atop a wooden viewing platform at 1,804 meters, the highest point of Tengjhih National Forest Recreation Area (藤枝國家森林遊樂區), the wilderness that covers much of Taiwan's interior is suddenly revealed in all its breathtaking beauty and sheer enormity.
 
The moon worlds of Kaohsiung County
Speeding along a serpentine country road through the unexceptional, low rolling countryside of Kaohsiung County, our scooters round a corner when abruptly the mixed woodland bordering the lane ends, the ground on the left falls away steeply, and an extraordinary ravine of crumbly, light brown earth unfolds to the left.
