Ice Spring

Info added on July 14, 2021

Originating from the East Rift Valley in eastern Taiwan, Ice Spring was founded in 2008 by Li Ming-huang when he encountered the problem of fruit overproduction. Farmers in Taitung County’s Luye Township would offer him fruit they could not sell at market prices and that would otherwise be discarded. Unhappy with the amount of food being wasted, Li began thinking of a way to help the struggling fruit farmers, and decided to use the fruit for handcrafted popsicles. Ice Spring, which was started as a non-profit organization, has grown into a thriving business since. The company uses a wide array of exclusively locally grown fruits such as mango, watermelon, pineapple, dragon fruit, and passion fruit – just to name a few – to create fresh and delicious versions of a classic summer treat. The popsicles can be conveniently ordered online at its website. They are also sold in stores around the island, including a dedicated Ice Spring outlet not far from MRT Yongchun Station in Taipei.

Yongchunpi Eco-Wetland Park / Baoshan Trail
(永春陂生態溼地公園˙ 豹山溪步道)

Located at the foot of a mountain, Baoshan Trail in Yongchunpi Eco-Wetland Park, is an eco-leisure path providing intimacy with Mother Nature. Following the stream-side Baoshan Trail to the top of 140m-high Baoshan (Leopard Mountain), you’ll see trailside cliffs and bluffs, followed by distinctive pothole terrain created by rushing stream waters. This health-enhancing walk takes no more than a leisurely half-hour.
