From what I found online, ancient trees can be found at Mount Lala. Visitors will get to enjoy "Forest Shower" (as they hike along the trails. The name, Lala originated from the Tai Ya Tribe ( ) "R,ra" which refers to the action of climbing up to a high point and look far. The people from the Tai Ya Tribe used to climb up the top of Mount Lala to look out for invaders.
