Dapochi, A Natural Wetland Haven for Diverse Wildlife

Chishang Township, Taitung County
There are various unknown bird species inside


In Chishang Township, located to the north of Dapo Pond, there is a natural wetland covering about 28 hectares called Dapo Pond. It is an ideal habitat for many birds and fish. In the past, residents used to catch fish and shrimp in the pond and make fragrant and soft rice dumplings with Chishang rice to serve to tourists. This brought fame to Chishang Township and it was named after the pond. Although Dapo Pond's fish and shrimp are no longer used in Chishang rice dumplings, they have become a signature dish in the bento industry.
