Da’yuling, once called "Hehuan Yakou ", is located at a saddle of Central Mountain Range. It borders the countries of Taichung, Nantou and Hualien. The surrounding mountains are just like the mother of nature hugging you. Besides, it has a good view of Black Mt. Qilai, Mt. Pingfeng, and Mt. Nanhu. During winter, visitors come to Mt. Hehuan to appreciate the snow and taste fresh highland vegetables and fruits.
Why this tree is called as a sacred tree？It is because this tree is the witness of the Taroko’s history for almost 3400 years. If it was an old man, he must have thousands of stories to tell.

Maybe…Maybe…there are too many possibility that you can image.
