【南投信義】丹大林道與消失的省道台16線|可徒步深入中央山脈的經典長程林道

布農族人有這麼一句話:「濁水溪的上游,不是終點,是我們布農文化的起源」,這句話揭開 丹大林道 的旅行序幕。下面是幾年前,丹大林道還沒被媒體大肆報導前,我曾在某個冬季前往安靜的丹大林道徒步健行和野營,以及在工寮過夜的三天兩夜重裝健行紀錄。 2024.01.31更新:合流坪的鋼便橋已於今日被台電撤除了 連結: 台電施工後丹大林道「恢復」通行! 拆橋挖巨溝「車輛恐無法通過」 丹大地區 位於臺灣本島中部之濁水溪上游,行政區隸屬於南投縣信義鄉,為全國面積第二大的鄉鎮。丹大地區也是濁水溪的發源處。東側翻過中央山脈可達花蓮,南鄰玉山國家公園,西接日月潭國家風景區,北側則與仁愛鄉相接。 潭南、雙龍、地利及人和四村等區域皆位於信義鄉,著名的 丹大(孫海)林道 便位於地利村中,沿著步道往東至花蓮邊界處可與七彩湖相接。其中地利村及雙龍村面積最大,合佔本區約七成面積,人和村次之,面積最小者為潭南村 。 丹大林道周邊地圖 丹大林道路徑示意圖 日治時期西元1943年,原本預計將東部花蓮木瓜溪流域附近的水力發電廠所生產的剩餘電力運輸到西部,但因為日本在1945年戰敗後,計畫就宣告中止,1948年台灣工業急速發展,用電量大增,直到1950年獲得美國援助執行了能高路線全長45公里的69kV東西向輸電計畫。 之後為了解決花東地區電力供應問題,台電於1985年開始研究新東西輸電之路線,最後決定自南投明潭發電廠與大觀第二發電廠輸送電力至花蓮鳳林超高壓變電所,此新東西輸電線於1990年開始辦理路線中心測量,1998年完工,全長72.4公里。 沿線共有196座電塔,線路橫跨中央山脈海拔2925公尺的崇山峻嶺,並在「 七彩湖 」附近的越嶺處設有「 光華復旦 」紀念碑,西以 丹大林道 、東以 萬榮林道 為維修保線道路。 丹大林道是深入丹大地區的重要通道,1958年(民國47年),出生於現今雲林縣口湖鄉的孫海,標得林務局巒丹大事業區第八林班地檜木原始林採伐權及伐木後的重新造林權,為了進入深林,孫海沿著原本的山徑開闢出可以卡車通行的丹大林道,因此丹大林道也被稱為「 孫海林道 」。 當年為了闢築林道與運輸需要,孫海建造了一座木橋於合流坪橫跨濁水溪,之後改為水泥橋,這座橋就是著名的「 孫海橋 」。 為了伐木業而開闢的丹大林道,其終點一開始並不是在七彩湖,後半段到光華復旦碑約12公里路段,是台電為了興建東西線輸電工程,才於

2018, June 11~16【泰北♡清萊】Travel to Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand (4th visit to Thailand)

端午節前夕,請了五天特休假,再次來到泰國北部清萊旅行!🇹🇭🐸🐵🐝
抵達曼谷機場後,開車一路往北,將近八百公里的路程,來到了蘭納王朝-清萊。
清萊是蘭納王朝興建的第一個首都,在蘭納王朝上有舉足輕重的地位,17世紀時曾被緬甸佔領,後來才歸還泰國,成為現今泰國最北的城府。帶著蘭納王朝的血統,泰北清萊及清邁的方言,與泰國南部的官話不同,比較接近於寮國與雲南傣族的語言,至今仍廣泛使用於泰北地區。而蘭納也有自已的文字系統,其文字則是改編自佛教巴利文,稱為Tham,字母和泰文大不相同。
佛教不但是古時人民重要的精神支持,也是平民受教育的唯一可能,而現在泰北寺廟裡的經文,仍以蘭納文字書寫。 蘭納地區的民俗節日以潑水節 (Songkran) 和水燈節 (Loi Kratong) 最為知名。潑水節也是泰國的新年,於每年的4月13~15日舉行,人們互相潑水以賀新年新希望。而泰北的水燈節更結合了天燈節 (Yi Peng),慶典活動更為熱鬧,水燈節於每年的11月左右舉行,人們施放蠟燭隨水漂流,或是讓天燈隨風而逝,可去除一年的厄運,帶來上天的祝福。
這次來到泰國,去了一些寺廟、逛了傳統市集,去了富有原始景色的叢林健行,造訪了 Khun Korn Waterfall、Pu Kaeng Waterfall 兩個瀑布。接著繼續一路向北,到了泰國最北點-美塞(Mae Sai)。
最後也去了傳說中的金三角(Golden Triangle)。金三角曾經是世界上生產最多鴉片、海洛英等毒品的地方,過去不少大毒販都集中在這裡,毒品交易多不勝數。直至近年,泰國政府全面禁毒,積極打壓不法分子,金三角地區終於不再種植罌粟花,改為種植稻米、水果和蔬菜。如今的金三角已經不再與毒品有關係,而變成遠近馳名的觀光區。
接下來,再往山上開車約一個半小時,到了盛產茶葉的中國雲南族村莊-美斯樂(Doi Mae Salong),在這裡品嚐了正港的雲南豬腳🐷、饅頭,以及高山烏龍茶🍵
旅途中,品嚐了好多美味又便宜的泰式料理(連路邊攤的CP值都超高),也喝了不少好喝的咖啡☕ ,還首次在泰國享受了天然溫泉♨️,下次要去清邁看大象🐘🐘🌲



The City of Chiang Rai was founded in 1262 by the first king of Lanna - King Meng Rai as the first capital of the Lanna Kingdom. Chiang Rai is historic Thai cultural place with Lanna Style lifestyle, activities, festivals and community events are conducted at The Legend Chiang Rai.


As a part of the Kingdom of Thailand the Lanna cities of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Lamphun, Chiang Saen, Payao, and Nan are all administered by Thai governors and officials, just like the rest of Thailand. However, the legacy of 1,000 years of history is stunningly beautiful in its complexity, making Lanna, and Chiang Mai in particular, one of the most visited historical cities in the whole of Asia.

Phayao has a long history; established in 1095 it became the centre of a small state which succeeded somehow to remain independent until the 15th century when it became part of the Lanna Kingdom which was ruling over the north of Thailand at that time. Phayao became an independent province only in 1977 – until that it had been a part of Chiang Rai province.

Visiting the renowned Golden Triangle is a must to complete the trip to Chiang Rai province! 
This is the famous location where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar meet in the middle of the Mekong River. 
The Golden Triangle was formerly known as the world’s major producer of opium, which was later improved thanks to the works of the Royal Projects. It is also the birthplace of various legends of the Lanna culture.




























Driving from Golden Triangle to Doi Mae Salong






Pa Tueng Hot Spring
Our first stop is at the Pa Tueng Hot Spring. It is alson known as ‘Huao Hin Fon Hot Springs’. It is a quiet and peaceful place for every families. If you’re going to have long holidays, you should start planning for reaching there.































Doi Mae Salong a small, ethnically Chinese village with delicious Yunnanese food, located northwest of Chiang Rai. The village is at an elevation of 1,130 meters, not too high, but high enough to have fresh mountain air, and cooler weather.

At the end of the Chinese Civil War, a group of Chinese, who wouldn’t succumb to defeat, lived nomadic lives in Myanmar. Eventually they found their way to the hilltops of Mae Salong, where they set up a village.  The Thai government allowed them to stay in Thailand, as long as they fought for Thailand.





















The mountain view of Doi Mae Salong
Mae Salong is an absolute tea drinkers paradise, and many of the local people in Mae Salong were friendly and inviting.







Chinese steamed buns (mantou) and Yunnanese style Braised Pork Leg are probably the most famous food to eat at Mae Salong.
