The Natural Reserve of History- Yuanlinji
Yuanlinji was formed into a small tribe around a century ago, where the Ji and Huang clans settled for generations. This small village has abundant natural resources, such as the century-old lychee tree and cold spring. In 2003, the Society of Wilderness discovered rich varieties of animal and plant species, as well as other bio-diversity in this oasis of ecology, during their stationed observation.
Under the guidance of the government, the Yuanlinji Eco-Art Development Association was founded, dedicated to community development and preservation of the rich resources, like the lychee three, old well, cold spring, and ancient tombs. Through a series of activities, the Association brought more people to know the beauty of Yuanlinji.
Yuanlinji (rounded woods) got its name from its topography. As the shape of this settlement looked like a rounded basket, residents of the area called it the rounded woods (Yuanlinji ). The local folks also call it the Ash Kiln, Banana Village, and the Graveyard.
