Building of the line started in 1895 for logging operations but this narrow gauge mountain railway is now a tourist attraction. The train sets out at the foot of Mount Ali and journeys up 2000 feet through 55 tunnels and 77 bridges and through different vegetation from the tropical to the alpine with spectacular views of deep ravines. This is part of the Alishan National Scenic Area, a mountain resort of hiking trails, mountain villages and tea plantations. Sounds wonderful.
