Renshan Botanical Garden仁山植物園

Introduction

Renshan Botanical Garden was formerly Zhongshan Plant Nursery; it used to grow saplings for landscaping until its conversion into a garden. Inside are beautiful landscapes planned in Japanese, French, and Chinese styles. It’s not far from downtown Yilan, and is a great destination for hiking.

Cars cannot be parked in the botanical garden, so visitors must walk up. On the way you can hear insects chirping or even the call of the Taiwan barbet, and watch Formosan rock macaques clambering around in the surrounding forest. People can relax their minds, wander in the woods, and absorb the phytoncide in nature.

Continuing upwards, you’ll come across an old camphor laurel canopy and a charcoal kiln which was used in the early days to make camphor essential oil. This was an important industry, and once one of Taiwan’s three main exports. At the trail’s highest point is the best view available of the vast Langyang Plain, with even Guishan Island visible in the distance. This gorgeous scene will instantly melt fatigue away as you head onwards in the Garden.

Renshan Botanical Garden is close to Xinliao Waterfall, and has little farm villages along the way, a visitor center, a variety of gardens, and abundant living organisms. Visitors can go on a healthy hike, browse through agricultural products, buy small potted plants for home, and spend a productive day.

    Visited the park near 10:30 and completed the course around 12. By 12:30, we were back near the main entrance eating lunch at 廖妈's eatery. You can choose the stairways or the road. We used the road and saw other visitors on the way. Did not experience any mosquitoes during my visit. There were bees and other insects, and roaming monkeys. You definitely need a good paid of sports shoes and some sunblock. There are water dispensers and clean restrooms within the area. The best part - admission is free!

    失意落莫的假性植物園

    3 2021-05

    因為去新柴寮瀑布步道,遇步道修繕暫時封閉,遂順道繞去看看,免收門票。從入口處至遊客服務中心這一段不輕鬆,當日又下雨,不好走。雖然網上相片,遊客中心那裡似乎不錯,不過,覺得讓遊客走這一段沒什麼意思,只是像一般山道而已,九份的山路、汐碇、汐萬、汐平公路、陽金公路都比它有看頭。看許多遊覽車的遊客,走一半就打退堂鼓了。說是植物園,奇怪!沒幾顆樹下有標樹種的,感覺這個園區很無精打采,落沒了。所以,我也中途折返。雖然我沒走到遊客中心,可能沒看清全貌,但,從沿途感覺看,這裡就像失意的政客一樣,過氣了。我給它3顆星79分評價。

    仁山植物園一開始聽到名字可能以為都只是在看一堆植物,殊不知裡面別有洞天,不愧是婚紗照聖地,因為太多美景,有日式庭園、英式庭園、歐式庭園,天氣好的時候一看真的太美了,重點是免費入園,太喜歡這個景點了!

    風景不錯,爬升約一百多公尺,柏油路步道,可以眺望整個蘭陽平原、天氣好時可以看到龜山島,步道簡單舒適,上面造景算用心
