Taihe is the most remote village of Meishan County. It is halfway up Xiang Mountain, facing Data Mountain. In the Japanese Colonial Period it was called “Haliwei” but, in the hope that the people would live in harmony the name was changed to “Taihe” , meaning peace.

The village’s houses are scattered across the slopes, with the largest concentration of people living at Shehouping. Due to the high elevation most of the trees are cedar or bamboo. The village has three routes that visitors can take, one following the Taihe Highway from Shehouping and then climbing up Shenguanyin Mountain, the climbing route;the second follows Taishan irrigation channel from Shehouping and goes to Jiaolong Waterfall and Jiaolongxu.The third route is the Chang Mountain sunrise watching route and joins to Rui-Tai Ancient Trail.
