Briefing

Fenqihu (altitude: 1403m), one of the important stations in Alishan Railway, got the name of “Dustpan Lake” because the landform resembles a basin. Although there is a “lake” within the name, no lake exists in Fenqihu actually. It was known for old-street, bamboo, waterfall, historical trail, and especially bento. The reason why bento got the reputation is that passengers could have bentos as their lunch when the train stopped at this station in the afternoon in earlier years.
The station building was a wooden structure initially, but it became Fenqihu Maintenance Section after the new station was opened. In 2004, the original one was demolished after the reconstruction. The authority later decided to reconstruct a new wooden one, similar to the historic one, to open to the public.
