Briefing

Zhushan Station (altitude: 2451m) is the best location to watch the sunrise. The Forestry Bureau began to build Zhushan Line for delivering passengers who watch the sunrise in 1984 and operated on January 13, 1986. Zhushan Line (total length: 6.25km; altitude: 2000m above) is the first mountain-climbing railway built by Taiwanese and the highest point of Taiwanese railway.
Zhushan gets the reputation of sunrise throughout the world. The original path was not affordable anymore due to the open of Alishan Highway. With the increase of tourists, the Forestry Bureau overcame a variety of challenges and commenced on the railway. Nowadays, tourists are able to watch amazing sunrise by taking Zhushan Line.
