Niupu Irrigation Pond

 

Dakeng Leisure Farm

Niupu Irrigation Pond was planned and constructed by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry to regulate local river discharge to store water for irrigation. Soil and water conservation was implemented to maintain local gorgeous scenery, which became a tourist attraction: Wonder in Water. The Soil and Water Conservation Bureau of the Council of Agriculture established the Niupu Mudstone Area Soil and Water Conservation Park in the area to demonstrate how ecological engineering methods can turn badlands into vitality to achieve soil and water conservation: storing water with soil and greening with plant. The lakeside trail meanders to the mountaintop where there are bamboo forests, bamboo ladders and planks, pavilions and cottages. The lake view sits in the front, while mountain ranges erect afar. In autumn, silver grass swings in the wind. In winter, green bamboo yellows at different levels to bring a perfect gradational change comparable to the reddening maple. The best part is, they all stand on the badland mountain to bring a sharp contrast to form the most distinctive tourist attraction in the district.
