Guanyuan Gas Station is located along the Central Cross Island Highway. It is also the gas station located at the highest elevation in Taiwan. It recently reopened following a five-month renovation, and has resumed selling the popular "sky-high zongzi."
The steaming hot zongzi are taken out of the electric cooker. These dumplings are a specialty of Guanyuan Gas Station, which is located 2,374 meters above sea level, making it the gas station located at the highest elevation in Taiwan. Motorists and tourists who pass by this remote and cold location like to warm up by eating these zongzi.
Being able to eat hot food on a mountaintop is a blessing.
Guanyuan Gas Station is located along the Central Cross Island Highway. It is often used by people going to Hehuan Mountain. As there are no other stores in the vicinity, employees proposed selling zongzi seven years ago. The dish became very popular, and some people even make special trips to the gas station just to eat them.
You can taste the meat stock in every single grain of rice. It warms you up when you eat it during cold days.
One zongzi costs NT$35, and the filling is made from meat and shitake mushrooms. Sushi rice is used for the outside instead of glutinous rice. The gas station sells 100 to 120 of them on an average day, which is a lot more than the 50 or so vehicles that come to fill up their tanks on an average day. The gas station recently reopened after a five-month renovation, and intends to continue serving as a relay station.
Guanyuan Gas Station was finally renovated for the first time after 32 years of being exposed to the elements. We also wanted to provide visitors with greater and better service.
The gas station was given a facelift, although its zongzi did not undergo any changes and will continue to warm the stomachs and hearts of motorists and tourists.
