Alishan

We visited Plum Mountain Green Lake Tea Plantation (http://www.ttvs.cy.edu.tw/kcc/960311ta/p1.htm), within Alishan (Mount Ali) National Scenic Area, Taiwan’s most visited national park. Alishan is not a single mountain, but a mountain range averaging 2,500 meters tall. However, instead of taking the famous Alishan Forest Railway or going by bus, which are filled with tourists, we went to Plum Mountain (elevation 1,200 meters), which has few tourists as the roads are too narrow for large tour buses, but just as beautiful in the midst of a sea of clouds.

The slopes are populated by a large Oolong tea plantation, whose owner treated us to sample their products to induce us to buy. As part of our prayer walk, we went to the peak of the tea hill to claim Taiwan for Christ. Alishan along with Sun Moon Lake are not to be missed if you visit Taiwan.

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray the Lord of the harvest to send more workers.
