Daguan Mountain is situated in Taoyuan City, Fuxing District and the New Taipei City/Wulai District border. Formerly known as Lala Mountain, in 1973 a professor from the Chinese Culture University discovered a large tract of ancient, sacred forest. This area contains the largest Formosan cypress forest in Taiwan. In the Atayal language, Daguan means “beautiful” and the area is rich in many species of forest life, such as the Formosan cypress, beech, cypress, Formosan black bears, monkeys, Mikado pheasants, and deer that have all been listed as nationally protected species. The park features a natural ecology explanation museum with an exhibit displaying various pictures and specimens of flora and fauna, and a specialist explanation service.  The nature reserve has a parking lot for compact cars as well as walking trails, explanation signs, a cypress trail, philosophical kiosks and other facilities. The Daguan Mountain (Lala Mountain) nature reserve is not completely open for the public to visit, with only 30 hectares being open. These sacred trees are gigantic and stand in great numbers. With the Formosan cypress ranging in age from 500 to 3000 years, the Lala Mountain nature reserve is abundant in agricultural produce. In addition to peach, there is also pear, honey plum, persimmon, kiwi, and other fruits. Juicy, sweet, and full of flavor, these fruits are waiting for you to come and taste them.
