Siiangtian Lake Wetland

Boundaries:

The wetland is situated at East Kawamura Village, Nanjuang Township; it extends east to Kungtian High Mountain with industrial roads connecting to Township Road Miao 21.

Introduction:

Kungtian High Mountain is a branch ridge of the Chali Range with steep cliff, formed by erosion by Dadoung River. The hillside is flat with a wider ridge in the west. Siiangtian Lake is situated in the mountains. Terrace farming is practiced throughout the basin. About 200 people live in Donhe Village, constituting the largest tribe of the Saisiat people. The biannual, Pastaai festival (held around Lunar October 15), is the only ceremony still completely practiced in the traditional manner; a similar larger festival is held every ten years.
