Hehuan Mountain Dark Sky Park(HMDSP) in Taiwan is far away from the light pollution of urban area, it is easy to be here by driving for stargazing the dark sky over 3000m altitude all year. Taiwan is one of most ecologically diverse areas in Asia, due to Eurasia’s animals and plants migrated to here during the ice age, there are some special species, like Alpine rhododendron, could be found in here. It took me two years for scouting and waiting for the best timing to complete this collection, it presents the landscape with dark sky I love in this beautiful mountain.
