Ci'en is located at an altitude of 1,995m, at the upper portion of Luwong River (also known as Ci'en River). Due to its geographic and climate conditions, this area has formed a humid, moist, and cool fog belt that supports a “cloud forest”.

Mixed forests to the west of Ci'en are dominated by coniferous species such as Taiwan spruce, Taiwan hemlock, and Taiwan red pine, begin to appear. The hardwood species growing here are deciduous, adding colors to the mountain scenery during the autumn and winter.
