Wushantou Reservoir Scenic Area(烏山頭水庫風景區)

Updated:2018-12-13

Introduce

Wushantou Reservoir (烏山頭水庫), known as “coral lake,” is a diverse tourist attraction with well-equipped camping areas and trails. The water in the reservoir is clean and the air is fresh, attracting many people to come for exercise and walking. Here, people are reminded of the considerable contributions of Japanese hydraulic engineer Hatta Yoichi (八田與一) to the Jianan region's farming irrigation. In addition to visiting the dormitories at the commemorative site, Hatta Yoichi's bronze statue is always adorned with offerings of flowers from Japanese tourists who pay homage to him. Every winter, in Sakura Park (櫻花公園) next to the statue, pink flowers bloom, making visitors feel like they are in a Japanese garden. The Love Stone area is a view of the lush sugar cane and countryside scenery brought by the waters of Jianan Irrigation Waterway (嘉南大圳). On the water there is now a solar powered sightseeing barge, which provides daily tours of Wushantou's (烏山頭) famous lake scenery. The boat wanders to the upper reaches of the dark green lake, islands scattered as in a dream. The site also contains a family water park with safe water facilities combined with barbecue and camping activities, making it an ideal family travel destination.

    A short drive from the main road, Wusanto Reservoir possess a picturesque environment. Visitors can cruise around the reservoir by the solar powered boats; as well as walk along the dam leisurely. Good place for photography.

    Save Your Money

    Traveler rating:2 2016-06

    My wife, brother-in-law (both Taiwanese) and me (American) went to this site one Wednesday afternoon. We stopped at the entrance booth and were told it would cost $200 NT each to gain entrance to the area. My brother-in-law got visibly angry and told the attendant that the charge was exorbitant and outrageous (in Taiwanese). We, reluctantly, paid the $600 NT ($19 US) and entered the park. The damn and reservoir were built during Japanese occupation. There's a large, domed structure modeled after an imperial prayer dome located in Beijing. We walked around that. Then, we got in the car and drove to the reservoir. We strolled down the road adjacent to the reservoir. At the end of the road, we met a Taiwanese woman that we had noticed at the domed attraction. She was puzzled and perplexed about what she had paid $200 to see. We felt the same way. She gave us a quizzical expression and said she was leaving. We felt the same way. We got in the car and drove out the exit gate, fully regretting that we had just paid $600 NT to see this historic landmark. Save your money!

    八田与一さんを堪能する旅

    Traveler rating:4 2015-06

    烏山頭水庫といえば八田与一さん。 烏山頭水庫に自力で行くのはちょっと大変です。 まずは台鐵で新営站まで移動します。そこから新営客運の公車に乗り六甲の町へ。そこからは公共交通はなくなります。3kmほど離れていますよ。徒歩しかありません。TAXIを拾えればラッキーです。 でも、烏山頭水庫に着けば感動があるでしょう。八田与一さんの記念公園もできております。ダムの近くには八田さんの銅像もあり。 また、公園とは違う八田さんのことが判る記念室もあります。 妻の外与樹さんのことは、事実を知ればちょっと切なくなるかな。 いいところです。 Yoichi Hatta Speaking of head water depot Osan. Is to go on their own to Osan head water box is a little much. First, it moves to the new 営站 in TaiTetsu. From there to the Rokko of town ride on public vehicles of new 営客 luck. Public transportation is no longer from there. We away about 3km. There is only walk. If Hiroere the TAXI is lucky. But, there will be impressed if put in Osan head water depot. Yoichi Hatta's Memorial Park we can also. In the vicinity of the dam is also a bronze statue of Mr. Hatta. In addition, there is also a Memorial Room that it can be seen that of Hatta's different from the park. Kana thing's outside Azukaki wife, becomes a little sad knowing the facts. Good is the place

    Peaceful beautiful and relaxing!

    The reservoir has a long, interesting history. There is a memorial to the Japanese engineer who built the dam in 1930. It's worth spending some time reading the background and getting a sense of what he accomplished. We toured the dam and campground area. There are bicycles available to rent, which is helpful to get around. The "Coral Lake" is beautiful and peaceful. There are no vendors selling things or places to eat, but this is a plus for us, since we prefer the quietness of the area. Very good place to relax and escape city life. It was empty when we came, so our trip to the water park was like having a private playground. The water park is as sophisticated as any other I have visited. My children did not want to leave. Highly recommend a visit!

    "Good for a walk or cycling"

    Traveler rating:3 2015-01

    Tainan Wusanto Reservoir has a history, When you walk along you can see the monument of the Japanese genius who built this great reservoir, The area is very remote and there is no restaurants, shops or any other food outlets, which is why I gave it an Average. But if you are looking to spend time with your lover or family away from busy life styles and mobile phones I recommend having a visit there. The only hotel or resort near by is Wusanto huching resort ( you may see my review). Around the area you may find camping sites, children play grounds and suspension bridges.....
