Erliao Sunrise(二寮日出)

Updated:2018-12-13

Introduce

Erliao (二寮) has the lowest altitude in Taiwan where the slanting light of the beautiful sunrise meets the clouds and mist of a chalk terrain (白堊地形) bamboo forest; its likeness to a traditional Chinese painting makes it a mecca of photography in Tainan. The day after summer rain is the best time to see the sunrise at Erliao, and at this time every morning between 2 am and 7am, if it's sunny and cloudless, Erliao is unlikely to be empty. The place is always full of tourists and photographers waiting for the sun to rise, watching the dark, starry sky and waiting for the sun to come out from behind the mountain and rouse the forest. Eventually golden rays sprinkle over all parts of the chalk bamboo forest, and penetrate the mist as in a Chinese painting. Tourists will raise their heads from this breathtaking view to discover the sun has long passed the mountain top. The charm of Erliao Sunrise is that you never know how it will appear on any given day; it may bring endless clear rays of light or a faintly glowing mist.

    Taiwan's landscape is like a basin, who would have thought tht it has such a gorgeous sunrise? When the sun was rising from steamy clouds, you could see how the sky changing colors from pale blue to pink to golden. Its about an hr drive from tainan city. You could travel to moon world or xinhua 新化 as the next stop.

    Best place in Tainan for sunrise Photography

    Traveler rating:5 2016-07

    This place is a well-known spot for sunrise photography. Professional and amateurs flock at this place very early in the morning. I believe some of them are there at 2am to get the best spot. The mountain range on the horizon and the morning fog on the bambook groves on the valley below creates a beautiful scenery that resembles a lot of Chinese paintings. You have to drive either by car or scooter there. If you want to take photographs, get there at least 2 hours before sunrise.

    It is a place easy to access by car, A lookout is being built for over 1000 tourists to see the sunrise in 2016. Unlucky that the day I went was foggy. We then went to Grass Mountain Moon World to have a walk.

    觀日出,看雲海的好地方。它是全台灣看得到日出雲海的最低海拔之處!初次造訪的旅客請注意,千萬不要讓導航自己帶著你走龍崎產業道路上二寮。你會哭死或嚇死,不騙你!一定要設定崗林國小或崗林派出所,這邊才是王道!

    低海拔的日出觀景台

    Traveler rating:4 2017-08

    這裡號稱是全台灣最低海拔卻可以看到日出跟雲海的地方,特殊節日(跨年)還有人數管制。搭配周邊特殊的月世界地形,讓二寮的日出景緻更顯特色,我們在平日早晨四點左右抵達,觀日平台已有少數民眾聚集,天色開始微微由黑轉為藍,接著紅、黃、白等交織著,原本漆黑的山頭漸漸顯出輪廓,月世界的特殊地形也一一浮現,想不到海拔不到200公尺的二寮,能有如此壯闊雲海,在日出的照耀下,真是夢幻。隨之的一剎那間,太陽公公躍出山頭,現場眾人一陣驚呼,日出前的幾分鐘,到太陽露臉那一瞬間最漂亮了。
