Shetoushan

Shetoushan or "Snake's Head Mountain," is opposite Longtoushan, and together they are a good example of the topography created by a meandering stream. Over time, deposits of earth and stones piled up and became connected with the mountains, creating landforms that resemble the head and tongue of a hundred-pace-long snake today. It is interesting to geologists as an example of a broad "meandering stream" topography in Taiwan. The area is only 1.5 hrs from the city of Kaohsiung, and weekends bring large numbers of visitors for walks and other outdoor activities in the area.



蛇頭山

蛇頭山位於鄉道高132 線12km附近,在往多納里必經之路上,與龍頭山的距離很近,也是一個典型的環流丘地形。這裡與龍頭山不同,因滑走地的土石堆積與蛇頭後方的山丘形成癒合相連接,而形成今日的酷似百步蛇頭之地貌,與龍頭山分置兩旁相互輝映,是國內少數僅有較完整之珍貴曲流、環流丘地形、地質景觀。
