Puli
Travel Guide

Puli which includes a city

Hike up and down sprawling green hills and misty valleys in this small region of farmland, mountains and an impressive monastery. 

Puli is a town in central Taiwan’s Nantou County with extensive hiking trails along undulating green hills. Its mountain peaks range from 1,250 feet (380 meters) to 2,300 feet (700 meters), surrounded by scenic farmland. Stroll through remote countryside and enjoy seclusion away from any other people.

The town’s main attraction is the Chung Tai Chan Monastery, a modern structure built with a blend of Chinese and Western styles and a stone façade. Admire extraordinary views of the surrounding mountains from the religious structure, which looms over a valley. Peruse statues, frescoes, calligraphy and other art forms around the monastery. Spend an afternoon in this very peaceful and elegant place.

For contrasting appeal, visit the Puli Brewery Factory, where you can learn about Taiwan’s wine history and the brewery’s place in the island’s culture. Listen to a detailed explanation of the fermentation process of wine and see interesting artifacts, pottery and paintings that tell the story of Chinese wines.

Continue your exploration of Taiwan history at the Guangxing Paper Mill. Take a guided factory tour and find out how to make paper from stirring pulp and adding colorful decorations. Take part in an artistic workshop and create beautiful works with bright prints.

After browsing the main sights of Puli, wander around the pleasant hills and enjoy the solitude on the mountains. Meditate in the wilderness before taking long walks through the countryside. Enjoy a picnic with family or friends in front of a panoramic valley view.

As a mainly agricultural area, the local economy relies heavily on its products, such as rice, sugar cane and Shaoxing wine.

To get to Puli, fly to one of the airports in the surrounding counties, such as Taichung Airport. Then ride a train or bus into the beautiful countryside of Nantou County before reaching Puli.

Step back in time to a misty land of serenity, mountains and stunning views in Puli.
