Dongshi Forest Garden or called Tungshih Forest is located in Taichung. The over 200 hectares resort spot is nicknamed “Four Corners Forest” due to the lustrous greenery. Only 8 km from the Tungshih Town center, there are many roads and hiking routes leads to the forest farm. The farm was originally a reforested land, after twenty to thirty years of careful cultivated, the land is now covered with dense forest and farmland. At an altitude of 500 meters, the area is a wonderful getaway from the summer heat.

It is well equipped with BBQ pits, camping ground, cottages, forest pool, horse riding course, orange farm, Mysterious Valley and Lover’s Valley. It also has the largest out in the wild physical training center in the county. The facilities are laid according to age, gender and physique; all in all, eight sections. Among these facilities are the pool games, obstacle course for the handicappers, artificial skiing lanes and more.

Tungshih Forest is also well known recently for the fireflies watching. The forest is so well managed, clean source of water and environment is the best habitat for fireflies. During March and April, would be the best time to come fireflies watching. Other interesting insects like stag beetles and many more are there to be discovered. With the rich natural resource, Dongshi Forest Garden is a wonderful visit to enjoy for everyone in your family.
