A Slice of Heaven on Earth

The view was a magnificient slice of heaven on Earth.

Here, I was standing on the ridge of Dawu Mountain in Southern Taiwan.

This ridge forms the boundary line to separate two Southern counties in Taiwan, i.e. Taitung 臺東 (S. Eastern) and Pingtung 屏東 (S. Western).

The Sun rises from the East, therefore, this breathtaking view will be overlooking Taitung County at location above 2,800 m in elevation.

Therein, a Chinese Hemlock tree (鐵杉) and sea of clouds with the rising sun flare.

The Chinese name for this gene of tree literally translate as “iron fir”.

North Dawu Mountain, Taiwan (Alt: 3,095 m) is the highest peak in the southern tip of Central Mountain Range.

And, one of the top 5 most magnificent, imposing and steep-cliff mountain to any Taiwan hikers.
