Alishan National Scenic Area – Sea of Clouds, Taiwan
The “Sea of Clouds” near the Alishan National Scenic Area in the mountains above Chiayi, Taiwan was a breathtaking site. You could actually watch the clouds forming, flowing and dissipating as they moved across the tea fields in the valley far below. Overall it had been a very cloudy day, with occasional rain, but just before sunset ” mother nature” decided to put on a show for those of us that had braved the elements and wandered up the path back to the observation point. Hiking around Alishan is beautiful and we also rode the forest railway. It requires a bit of effort to get to Alishan National Scenic Area, but it is well worth it. We also hear that it is incredibly beautiful during Cherry Blossom Season.
