Recollect Childhood Memories by Discovering the Beauty of Rural Village Life
Located in the Shihmen Township of Taipei County and covering more than ten hectares at an elevation of 130 meters, The Albe Farm is comprised of an elegant, independent valley that is nestled in a traditional bucolic village scenic area. However, this region’s most unique aspect is that the ecological environment here has been preserved in its virgin state and not been harmed by today’s rampant pollution.
Having hardly ever been disturbed by human beings after millions of years of natural evolution, the area in which Aliban is located has cultivated a colorful ecosystem, indeed. The Wetland Ecosystem, Stream Ecosystem, Grassland Ecosystem, Pool (Lake) Ecosystem and Forest Ecosystems to be found here are home to a wide variety of plants and animals. This makes Aliban an impressively suitable location for embarking on natural ecological fieldtrips and visits. Regarding Aliban’s ecological research statistics, it is home to more than 100 types of butterflies, more than 70 types of birds, 19 kinds of frogs and more than 60 types of dragonflies.
