Niushan is a place where cows are bred and raised. It is called "Huting" by the Amis people. Not so long ago, the amount of cows were declining, and scenes of cows grazing were no longer common. Nowadays, you can see many herds of free-range cows in the mountains, giving Huting another meaning: a carefree place site of any worries. As soon as you pass Niushan's entrance sign, you'll have to take a roundabout route of about 1 kilometer. The road conidtions aren't great, and if you're on a scooter or motorcycle, you'll have to be careful. There's a big disparity between the road dips and drops. When you finally arrive and are greeted by Niushan's vast tracks of land, you'll be relieved of all your worries. There's a 50 NTD admission fee. The area contains a grass meadow that can be used for camping (you'll have to provide your own camping equipment though), and if you exit on one side, you'll end up at the beach. There's a tall wooden observation tower there, as well as a bar and restaurant.  Photography is forbidden inside the restaurant, due to local handicrafts being produced within. Walking out from the back of the hills, there's a green alley that can lead you to the mountaintop. The scenery is exceptionally good here, with the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Niushan area on the other, surrounded by mountains. There's even statues located on the hills, standing to the side. When visiting Niushan, you'll want to spend a while here, as it's a shame if you leave so soon after visiting. For those who don't want to camp, the area also provides wooden cabins for lodging. Those who are touring Hulien's seaside route must not miss out on Niushan!
