Meiling Hiking Trail(梅嶺登山步道)

Traveler rating:3.5 7 Reviews




Meifeng Historic Trail (梅峰古道) has always been one of the top choices for the citizens of Tainan to climb the hills at the outskirts of the city, and has 5 clearly marked hiking trails. They include the Ridge Trail, with its incredible views, and the Melong Trail, the southern end of which leads to 1,110m Mt. Zhuzijian triangulation point. Wulong Trail is also a relatively relaxed trail where tourists can enjoy the views of Tsengwen Reservoir and head to HsinHsing's popular scenic spot the One Line Sky Trail. Wulong trail is also a good place to see fireflies. During nighttime in April and May the sides of the path are filled with countless black-winged fireflies, flying among the plum and betel nut trees looking for mates. Come and enjoy the fireflies, but don't catch them or disturb their mating with flashlights. Meifeng Historical Trail (梅峰古道)used to be a major transport road leading from the Guanshan area to Nanxi Township. Locals used this ancient road to go up the mountain to pick rattan, medicinal herbs, and bamboo, so it was an important path for people's livelihood and the local economy. Near the old path, there still remains an early charcoal kiln. Part of the trail has been repaired with flowers lining the edges of the path, and a rich ecology. In May, you can also see a wide expanse of Formosa lilies. Near the ridge is an area dense with brush pot trees and fern growing all around; the mysterious atmosphere makes it feel like entering a Jurassic jungle, a forest landscape not to be missed. The Guanyin trail starts from behind the two story parking lot, and so is the most popular hiking trail. With private plum gardens on both sides, there is no shortage of plum trees on the trail, and plum farmers by the roadside selling homemade preserved fruit, plum tea and plum wine. In front of the Guanyin temple, you can admire the striking view of the Nanxi Valley and Meiling Scenic Area. After the temple, the trail becomes more difficult, and in some parts you will need to use a rope to pull yourself up with both hands, combining rich landscape with a physical challenge.

    梅嶺 梅•來了

    Traveler rating:4 2018-01

    今年冬天不如以往地冷,以致梅花開的較晚。 利用一般日上山遊客較為稀少,從高雄出發約莫90-100分鐘。 這次大約十點半抵達梅嶺,一路殺上文川梅子雞那邊,停好車,沿著指示的步道恣意而行。沿途有些人家或商店整理的梅樹,陸續看得見花苞與盛開的梅花。 目前仍為稀疏地開,但到了一月中就會開始結果,那冷冽雪白的梅花便會漸漸凋謝,請把握時間上山,享受難得的梅花季。 在花的旁邊,無須言語,無須喧鬧,靜靜地與梅同行。

    每年三月份是梅嶺繁花開放的季節,非常漂亮,有山櫻花、紫牡丹,和許多不知名的花朵樹木,非常適合來郊遊,去的那天陽光明媚,隨便拍照都很美麗,和家人一起擁有一個很舒服很棒的早晨,中午還可以在附近找一間梅子雞餐廳用餐,是當地的風味料理。 五月份還可以來此地觀賞螢火蟲,去年來看螢火蟲的回憶也很棒!!
