Organizers Thursday announced details of the Alishan Sunrise Impression Concert held annually on January 1st to welcome New Year’s first sunrise.

Alishan is the most popular tourist destination among domestic and foreign travelers for seeing New Year’s first sunrise, Chiayi Forest District Office deputy director Yang Jui-fen said.

On the night of December 31, the office will hold a year-end party in the Xianglin service area for travelers to bid farewell to 2015, Yang said. Bands from the local tribe of Tsou will perform at the party, she added.

Starting at 5 A.M. at the Dueigaoyue viewing lot, the aurorean concert’s lineup comprises performances of Alishan bamboo musical instruments, Tsinghua University Symphony Orchestra, Taiwanese singer Showlen Maya and a Latin musical band.

The organizers warned travelers intending to attend the sunrise concert to wear warm clothes as the temperature at the mountaintop is usually around 0 degrees Celsius at the time of sunrise.

Attendees are recommended to book a hotel room in advance.
