玉山入圍世界新七大自然奇景
示範會話

我之前在報紙上看到一則新聞,是關於玉山入圍由瑞士新七大奇景基金會舉辦票選的「新世界七大自然景觀」的景點之一,真不簡單!

是呀,玉山是台灣唯一獲選「新世界七大自然景觀」初步入圍的景點。它從入圍的世界261個自然景點脫穎而出,因此這次玉山能入圍,對玉山本身以及台灣,都是莫大的肯定。

I read an article on the newspaper the other day. It said that Yushan has been listed as one of the new 7 wonders of nature in a campaign launched by the New7Wonders Foundation. Isn’t it amazing?

It surely is. Yushan is the only scenic spot in Taiwan that has made its way into the competition. It was selected out of a total of 261 scenic spots around the world. The nomination is a great compliment to both Yushan and Taiwan.

那麼,玉山入圍的原因是什麼呢?我從沒去過玉山耶,它的魅力何在?

玉山主峰高達3,952公尺,是台灣、也是東北亞的最高峰。它座落在玉山國家公園內,有豐富繁茂的野生物種及生態景觀資源,更有富厚的原住民文化與歷史古蹟。光是在國內,每年就約有四萬人攻頂玉山。

By the way, what are the reasons for Yushan’s nomination? I’ve never been there before. Why is it so attractive?

Yushan’s peak is 3,952 m above sea level, which is the highest both in Taiwan and across Northeast Asia. It is situated within Yushan National Park, which is known for its diverse wildlife, beautiful ecology, breathtaking scenery, rich aboriginal culture and historic sites. Each year around 40, 000 Taiwanese people climb the mountain.

對呀,我很早就聽說越來越多外國客都慕名來登玉山,而且將近兩成的登山客都是外國旅客耶~~

是啊,玉山一直都很受登山客及生態保護者的喜愛。只不過在喜愛之餘,我們更需要重視對自然環境的保護。因此這個活動除了能夠提高台灣的能見度外,最重要的,就是喚起大家一起保護玉山。 不如這樣,下次我們一起去挑戰玉山吧!

Yeah, I’ve long heard that foreign mountain climbers are increasingly attracted to Yushan by its fame, and that about 20% of the climbers are from abroad.

Indeed. Yushan has always been the famous destination for mountain climbers and conservationists alike. But as much as we love Yushan, we shall not forget about protecting the environment. Hence this campaign can not only lift Taiwan’s international profile, but more importantly, it can raise people’s awareness that we need to protect Yushan. I tell you what, why don’t we go climbing Yushan together next time?

真的嗎?我等不及了!

Really? I can’t wait!
