Was there in 2016 in Nov. autumn period.
I flip my photos later and see, the maple leaves are soso.
But like what you shown, that is not autumn period i guess...
Perhaps spring or summer.

Agree, mountain road hard to say.
My last trip from alishan to cingjing, road is close so no choice but to go by the long way.

hmm ... not worth to book car for solo
so it's easier to access from taichung
will still try the shuttle bus to hualian ... if no bus just go back taichung
