Nanhua Reservoir(南化水庫)

Traveler rating:4.5 6 Reviews

Thursday:Open 24 hours a day





When going from Tainan on the Taiwan Route 20 towards Jiaxian (甲仙), the strip of blue lake that is Nanhua Reservoir (南化水庫) is hard to miss. Besides being a major source of Tainan's water, Nanhua Reservoir is also a leisure area and historical site. Below the dam is the Old Battlefield of Tapani (噍吧哖古戰場), now home to a military history park, eco-park and water park collectively called the Yuanzhilu Leisure Park (源之旅休閒公園). Follow the South 179 City Road along the edge of the reservoir towards the upper end and you will arrive at Guanshan Village (關山里), the most remote and secret village in Tainan. Along the sides of the road you will find many secret places, and when you arrive at Guanshan don't forget to head to the Brown Sugar Farm to see the brown sugar being made by the ancient method. This is a great place for an in-depth tour.

    We had a beautiful drive up the mountain to this small reserve. The locals were so kind and helped us find our way as this location was hard to find on Google maps. There are signs to follow though. We went on a weekday so it was not as crowded so the caretaker/owner who spoke good English was very patient and answered all of our questions. The monkeys were friendly and patient. They can be mischievous if you are not paying attention. I loved this place it was a great experience!

    Great place to see the macaques

    Traveler rating:4 2016-07

    A great place to see the macaques in Tainan that are roaming around freely. Buy some bananas or vendors nearby to feed the macaques. If you walk up a little bit you may also see some of the cute baby macaques. Do be careful as you approach them with food as they tend to grab them. You will need to drive up here either by car or scooter since there is not public transportation.
