When you arrive at the foot of Malabong Mountain, you can see the surrounding area. The terraced strawberry orchard is a major feature of the landscape here. Malabong Mountain is a first-class triangular point, and naturally has a very broad outlook. Although the west is covered by trees, the holy ridge line can be seen in the east. Further north, you can also see Luchang Mountain Beishan and Jiali Mountain. In the south is the Da'an River, which winds all the way to the Liyu Lake in Miaoli, creating a magnificent mountain and river with a 180-degree view, which makes people linger.
