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!

A small loop of trail to overlook the sealine and plain is available for family with kids or elders.

    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!
