Alishan is famous throughout South East Asia as a spectacular place to watch the sunrise over the celebrated ‘Sea of Clouds’ that rings Yushan (Mt. Jade). The ‘Enchanting Sisters Ponds’ are two small pools, one with a wooden bridge and pavilion, named after two lovelorn aboriginal sisters who drowned themselves there. Other attractions include the ‘Three Generation Trees’, several temples, a cherry garden, deer farm and a small museum.
