Fushan Botanical Garden, located on the boundary between Ilan County’s Yuanshan Township and Taipei County’s Wulai Township, is the largest botanical park in Asia. The area is divided into 3 parts, Botanical Garden, Water protection Zone, and Hapen Nature Reservation Zone. However, only Botanical Garden is open to the visitors. It includes self-guided trails, signs, with interpretive plaques, wooden bridges, and pavilions for visitors to use. The park was established to preserve the characteristic forest ecology of northern Taiwan; most of its plant cover consists of natural temperate-zone broadleaf, and there is a complex mix of local vegetation as well as numerous species of wildlife in the area.
