Spring Mountain Leisure Farm is located across an expanse of 8 hectares. From the restaurant’s viewing platform, it looks out upon immense primitive forests. The farm is located in a high alpine region, from 600 to 900m above sea level. From the highest point, it looks south to see Jiutong Mountain, west for a view of Taichung Harbor, and east at Daxue Mountain. The 300m difference in altitude between the eastern side of the farm and the Dajai River bed provides a sprawling view akin to looking down on Taipei City from atop the Taipei 101. The view at sunset is breathtaking as one takes in all the lights and movement in the Taichung basin. If you turn your gaze skywards, you will be stunned by the sparking stars throughout the night sky.
Located above various mountain ridges, enjoy the vitality of the first rays at dawn. Immerse yourself in the delicate colors of the clouds at dusk. Watch as the oceans of clouds ebb and flow. In addition to these visual treats, the sounds on the farm bring even more joy. Listen to the gentle calls of birds, in particular the adorable call of the Chinese bamboo partridge, as well as the flow of the Dajia River. These wondrous sounds of nature can sooth the soul and bring immense relaxation. In order to preserve the original mountain scenery, pagodas, paths and even rooftops are constructed in a primitive, minimalistic style which blends seamlessly into the natural beauty.
The farm is equipped with a large parking lot and expansive platform as well as a 2km farm road renovated into a smooth, 4m wide road. In addition to the existing flora and historical trees to either side of the road, various flowering plants have been cultivated, such as cherry trees, Rhododendron, wild lily, lavender, maple, citron daylily, tong flower and an assortment of other flowers. The farm provides more than a dozen pagodas and several toilets throughout its premises, providing visitors with the most comfortable experience. The 1km long footpath on the farm leads visitors on an exciting journey upwards, looking down at the restaurant from different perspectives with each step taken, there is always a new surprise.
|The mission of the farm is not only to share wonderful scenery and events, but become a paradise for those living busy urban lives, so that those living in the concrete jungle may leave the hustle and bustle behind to relax. The farm was named “Spring Mountain” in hopes that it will wash away all spiritual fatigue.|
There is an altitude difference of 300m throughout the Spring Mountain Farm. With patience and determination, anyone can conquer the 900m altitude peak and enjoy the thrill of hiking. Simply set the peak as your goal and take this journey one step at a time. Don’t give up as you can rest in the pagodas along the way. At the peak, you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view from the top. On a clear day, one may even catch a glimpse of the Taiwan Strait and Taichung Power Plant.
