The Alishan scenic area is mostly mountaineous, extending over an altitude ranging between 300m and over 2600m and comprising several climatic zones. Here there are betel nut plantations, oolong tea plantations and cypress forests, which all thrive in the local climate. The mountain road is well-built, but is narrow and winding, with many curves. The weather is quite humid, with frequently overcast skies and misty air between dusk and dawn.
