Hiking in Alishan Cosmo de Bono: A Trip to the Alishan Mountains – March 2024

阿里山之旅: 我來台灣已經七個月了,雖然感覺沒那麼長。現在是國語中心的春季學期,我的語言學習進步順利。 現在是三月,我決定去台灣南部的阿里山玩玩兒幾天。阿里山是台灣有名的自然風景區,茶葉和櫻花。 不過,從台北到阿里山並不簡單。我需要從台北坐高鐵到嘉義市一個在與南部的城市。從嘉義出發以後,我又坐了阿里山森林鐵路,但是這個鐵路不到阿里山。坐完火車以後,還要坐一個小時的車才能到阿里山。雖然旅程非常長,但是火車上的景色太好了,而且還能穿越森林。 阿里山有幾個道步。第一天,我散步上了阿里山的最高點-大塔山頂(海拔 2,666 公尺)。道步旅行很美,但是有很多台階… 在阿里山的隔天,我早上 5 點起床,坐日出小火車了。這輛火車會到高山上的一個觀景點,然後你就可以觀賞日出了。然而,我去的時候是陰天,但日出的景色依然很美。然後散步下山,大約 90 分鐘。 一般來說,每年的 3 月和 4 月是遊覽阿里山的最佳時節,因為這時候可以看到櫻花。我去的時候其實是櫻花盛開的季節,所以大部分樹都開了花,但花還沒完全綻放。 阿里山最吸引我的地方是它的環境。我過去不認為台北是一個繁忙或緊張的城市,事實上,我還認為跟歐洲城市比,台北真的很平靜,但台灣南部更平靜。我現在明白為什麼台灣南部的人會開玩笑說台北人總是「匆匆忙忙」的了! 我計劃不久以後去高雄旅行,我非常期待這次旅行。 感謝您們閱讀我的報告,希望您們喜歡這些照片!   English Translation: A Trip to Alishan: I’ve been in Taiwan for seven months now, although it doesn’t feel that long. It’s now the spring term at the language centre
