Luye Highland hot air balloon area
Luye Highland is the first place constructed with a fresh image of hot air balloon in Taiwan. It is also a new scenic spot in Taitung. Since 2011, Taiwan International Balloon Fiesta has been annually held from late June to early August. The flying shows of hot air balloon in the early morning and evening are the climax every day. Pilots from different countries navigate colorful balloons to fly. This makes the sky of Taitung in summer full of young and enthusiastic atmosphere.

Nice view High LandThis place is known for three activities, namely, flying umbrella (Hang Gliding), Hot ballon and grass sliding. The grass field is beautiful and the view from the high land is fantastic. The season for hot ballon and flying umbrella is over, so only few tourists around during weekdays. However, it’s a great place to visit to enjoy the nature and the view.
Ballon festivalThis is the first time that I’m in the ballon festival. The place is nice and not too difficult to find. There are a lot of food that you can eat at high land with music was really nice. There might be too many ballons fly at the same time, so it kind of tight in the air but still a nice visit.
Nice ride down the slopeIt is not the season for hot air balloon. Nevertheless we still went up. For families with children, they may find riding down the slope to be really fun. TWD100 for one ride. Up there, you can also see a spectacular view of Lu Ye. Being on top, you will be able to appreciate how well the whole area is being planned. With plots of land neatly arranged against one another. There is also a shop there which sells Red Oolong Tea. Local specialty. A nice trip up.
Green highlandJust a green highland for scenic view. Hot air ballon activity just a hype as very unlikely to get ballon ride if air speed exceed 15 kmph , rain and extreme heat. You are deemed to strike lottery if get the ride.
Got a Spare Half Hour?The Lu Yeh Highland is famous for its hot air balloon festival. Travelling here outside of the festival time you will probably be disappointed because of the lack of other activities here. But if you happen to be passing by on a clear day the Highland does offer some great views of the surrounding valleys and therefore some photo opportunities which could take half an hour. However on a cloudy day you likely won't see much at all so give it a miss. What else is up there? A large grass hill and area for kids to run around and stretch their legs. A few shops selling tea, dried fruit and other local produce, restrooms, and if you are really adventurous: Paragliding! So depending on what you are after and what time of year you visit you may love this spot or you may be thinking 'what's next on the itinerary'.
