Jhihben Forest Recreation Area

Situated in the Jhihbennei Hot Springs area southwest of Taitung City, Jhihben National Forest Recreational Area spans 110 hectares, ranges from125 to 650 meters above sea level, and has a mean annual temperature of about 22ºC, Dense forests and Jhihben Creek pass through the entrance to this area. With such a beautiful environment, Jhihbennei has become a famous tourist site in Taitung.

This area is bounded by a river bed and a mountain ridge. Steep slopes make this area perfect for hiking on Forest Bath Trail, Hero Hill Trail and Ficus Shade Trail. Most trails are constructed in the dense forest; however, visitors can look down to Jhihben Creek, to an endless ridge, and even to Taitung City through the open space along the trails. The wood-paved trail along Jhihben Creek is on the way to Jhihben Falls, which has two narrow, parallel streams. Looking out to the falls and taking deep breath from the waterfall platform makes visitors feel very relaxed.
