Ordinary people may indulge themselves in the beautiful scenery here while biologists jump out of their skins for finding a kingdom of natural species. In spring, you can hear birds singing, streams flowing and smell fragrance of flowers. In summer, on theMountWuzi,ghentazaleas, in brilliant purples and reds, are all in bloom scattering over the whole mountain. In late autumn, maples paint mountains red while pines and bamboos remain green. Appreciating sunrise at dawn and sunset at dusk are also great enjoyment for you. In winter, snow encloses the park and ice bars decorate mountains. While you enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the white world, you can also excite yourself by playing snow skating. In a word, no matter for leisure or adventure, Mount Dawei National Forest Park must be a good choice.
