It is proud of Donghe Farm. Without careful preservation and protection, there couldn’t be rich and special flora and fauna in Donghe Farm. Yes, it is a rare primeval tropical rainforest, a home of Taiwan rock monkeys, various ferns, towering camphor, epiphyte, giant banyan and more. And Forest Bath Trail makes precious forests accessible. Along the trail, sky-reaching trees block hot sunshine, release negative ions, and comfort each hiker. Hikers can enjoy and learn from the wonder of primeval forest in 2 hours.

Camping ground is located at sides of Mawukubei creek(馬武窟北溪). The creek is so clear that numerous shrimps and fish live happily. It is exciting to have camping activities, catch shrimps, roast meat and fishes, play water battles with friends or even have river tracing! Plus, eastern side of camping ground is a steep cliff and a fabulous spot to appreciate magnificent the Pacific Ocean sparkling in sunrise.
