As 2,451 meters above sea level, Chushan Station is once again the highest railway station in the country. After three years of renovations, Chushan marked its grand reopening on Monday. Train services will resume on Tuesday.
Chushan is a stop on the Alishan Forest Railway. The station was rebuilt using steel and domestic timber, including red cypress, Japanese cedar, and Taiwan acacia. Its main hall, platform floor, and ceiling decorations all feature cultural motifs of the Tsou Indigenous people. Railway authorities hope Chushan will be more than a stop on a journey, but also become a new landmark of Alishan.
