Shuanglianpi Wildlife Refuge雙連埤野生動物保護區


Shuanglianpi is situated at the basin in the mountain areas of Huxi Village, Yuanshan Township, Yilan County, close to the Fushan Botanical Garden. It is a natural barrier lake comprising one large and one small lake, known as the Upper Pond and Lower Pond by the locals. However, only the Upper Pond still retains its water source; the Lower Pond has now turned into a swamp. Over one third of the aquatic plant species in Taiwan can be found within the area of Shuanglianpi. The rich ecology of the area is an aquatic plant paradise.

Shuanglianpi is often veiled with a thick fog. Meeting the eyes is a vast area of grassland. A few rows of bamboo trees around the lake sway in wind, insects chat and birds chirp, accompanied by the intermittent croaks of frogs, and the reflections on the lake; together, they compose a poetic landscape and countryside. It is because of such beautiful scenery that numerous filmmakers have been attracted to film movies here.

There is also a special ecological landscape in Shuanglianpi, which is a wonder rarely seen in Taiwan: a floating island between the ponds about the size of a football field composed of a variety of aquatic plants. It moves every time a typhoon strikes, and each move reshuffles the plants in the water and redistributes their territory.

Also because of the uniqueness of the floating island, it became a home to a variety of fishes and shrimps, dragonflies, frogs and other insects and animals, not to mention species of migratory birds and resident birds stopping over. So on holidays, why not treat yourself to a natural and intellectual trip by visiting the Shuanglianpi.

    宜蘭雙連埤環湖步道:雙連埤位於宜蘭縣員山鄉的湖西村,海拔高度約470公尺,是群山環抱的盆地。下午走在碎石路的環湖小徑,欣賞波光盪漾的湖光山色,十分愉快。Shuaglianpi (two connected  ponds) village was above the mountains, the trail around the village is my favorite place for walking.

    宜蘭美麗景點之一~~雙連埤,從宜蘭市出發,約20分鐘不到的車程即可到達,我最愛這裡的松葉林,有如到日本一般,適合下車走走踏青,探索、觀察與享受大自然之分,吸收自然的分多精😊! 記得離開時,別遺留下垃圾,共同維護美麗好地方!

    此處還沒有過度開發 連柏油路都沒有 過了雙連埤露營區注意看指標即可抵達 但是下雨天很麻煩 地上很多水坑跟爛泥巴 若非要露營或去福山植物園順遊 此處並不需要特地前來
