Xiding has 3 beautiful attractions: Tea Garden Trail, Sea of Clouds and Cloud Falls, and Eryanping Sunset. Eryanping Trail captures all these beautiful scenery.
The newly expanded trail is a wooden plank trail that was built from the end of the old trail at the pavilion. There are bamboo forest, strange rock formations and tea garden along the way. It also overlooks the Chiayi-Tainan Plain, Renyitan Dam and Lantan Reservoirs. When the weather is nice, you can also see Dongshi and the outer edge of Budai Harbor in the distance. To the east are the Yushan mountain ranges in the distance. In the winter, there’s a chance you’ll see cloud falls and sea of clouds. The beautiful sunset attracts many photographers to make special trips here to take pictures.
