Lou Guan Tai National Forest Park

Yesterday evening, we went off to explore more of the Lou Guan Tai National Forest Park, as the wildlife centre I’ve been volunteering at is situated inside it. We learned that the national park is a very important site for Taoists, as it was here where the founder of Taoism, Laozi, wrote the yin and yang philosophy. A large statue of Laozi can be found in the forest, as well as many temples and stone tablets dedicated to him and his work. The forest was stunning, with acres of lush greenery surrounding the temples, and we spent a good few hours exploring. It is easy to see why Lou Guan Tai got its name- it translates as “the luckiest place on earth.” I’ll leave you with some photos of the historic remains and scenery from the national forest park.
