Wushan( Wu Mountain;烏山) in Nanhua Township (南化) is the dividing line between Tainan and Kaohsiung. Wushan Hiking Trail (烏山登山步道) runs approximately 12 kilometers from north to south, with a mix of steep and gentle slopes, and walking the entire length of the trail takes about 9 to 10 hours. The most popular section among hikers is behind Jinguangshan Hode Purple Bamboo Temple (金光山厚德紫竹寺). Many people come here very early in the morning. Besides the excellent view of the Jianan Plain (嘉南平原) from the temple, the Wushan trail ridge provides an extensive view of Kaohsiung’s mountains stretching into the distance. The northern part of the Purple Bamboo Temple section is relatively easy; while the distance is long, the slope is gentle, and along the way there are pavilions that provide rest stops. The southern section, on the other hand, is short but steep; walking this way is a challenge that will require some physical fitness; but both allow people to climb Wushan's peak and enjoy the pleasure of standing high above the world.
