Chihpen (Jhiben, Zhiben; 知本; Zhīběn) lies about 15km southwest of Taitung in a narrowing valley cutting into the Dawu Mountains. Regularly attracting over 70,000 visitors a month, it's one of Taiwan's most popular hot-spring areas, with rows of multi-star hotels, garish karaoke parlours and clogged traffic at weekends. At the far end of the canyon, however, there's respite in the lush jungle park with its beautiful banyan forest.
