Chichi HighlandChichi Highland is named after its 77-meter altitude. As a military fortress in the past, Chichi Highland was a place that few people were allowed to visit. It’s now a tourist spot with an outstanding 360-degree view of the mountains, the sea, and a view of the whole city despite its slight elevation. Previously a control area for the Military Garrison, you will pass by bunkers and abandoned barracks walls along the way, giving you a bit more of a sense of adventure. Yet, with the birds humming, flowers blooming, and the sound of waves, it is a casual and stress-free experience. Visitors can spot the estuary of the Hualien River, which is resulting from the stirring of the river and the Pacific Ocean, and hence learn the origin of Hualien’s old name “Hue Lan.” Visitors can also see the beginning of the Coastal Range Mountains, Hualien and Ji’an city from afar. The borderless view of the mountains and the sea opens up the mood of visitors who reach the Chichi Highland. In summertime, one should pay special attention to the insects, mosquitoes, snakes and ants, and even the strike of heatstroke. Whether being a photographer or a scenery lover, Chichi Highland is undoubtedly one of the most recommended tourist spots all over the world. Visitors are strongly advised to wear long-sleeved clothing, avoid wearing perfume, and pay extra attention to poisonous snakes, wasps, and monkeys. Additionally, visitors are asked not to wander off the trail and to observe wildlife conservation laws. Since the military buildings are aged, people should not cling to the railings to avoid danger and should not approach when the weather is bad. Visitors are strongly advised to wear long-sleeved clothing, and avoid wearing perfume
