  • Fataán Agriculture Leisure Area​

    "Fataán is actually the pigeon pea!", an Amis, people of local aboriginal tribe, says amiably to the visitors. In the early days, pigeon peas were one of the staples of the Amis. This kind of peas can not only be stored for a long period of time, they are also high in nutrition. It has also been deemed as an auspicious food by the Amis. In ancient times, when the ancestors of the Amis were moving around to Guangfu, they saw pigeon pea trees were rife in the forest, so they aptly named the place as Fataán. 

     

    Over there, with Maxi mountain as the natural protective shield, water has been quietly welling from underground streams for tens of thousands of years to irrigate the land. Also, with its major stream, Fudeng river, winding around the area, this tract of land has been cradled to be Fataán wetland. 

     

    Fataán wetland is located at Guangfu township in the eastern coast of Taiwan, and a place worshipping green lives. The people living in this land respect and appreciate the gift from Mother Nature. In this land, sunshine may present the ultra beauty of green-light scene through the greenly thriving ecology during sunny days, and life traction has kept changing all the time. 

     

    The reincarnation in the wetland of the vertical valley in eastern Hualien livens up Fataán, breathes life into this land and gives it its unique personality. In the wetland, we see ethnic integration, and we also see more of the coexistence of innumerable living beings with compromise and interaction. By have a glimpse of this land, you will see its beauty and dedication.
