Stargazing area in Nantou County’s Cingjing launched

A project to create the nation’s first stargazing industry area has passed a review by the Executive Yuan in a meeting on regional revitalization. The “Starry Mountain City” plan focuses on areas between Nantou County’s Cingjing (清境) area and Hehuanshan (合歡山), which the International Dark-Sky Association in 2019 designated Taiwan’s first international dark-sky park. The plan was jointly launched by government agencies, academia and private entities, including Nantou’s Renai Township (仁愛) Office, National Chi Nan University (NCNU) and the Cingjing Sustainable Development Association.
