Location and geography
Fuli is located in the middle section of the Huatung Valley , an elongated valley that extends parallel to the east coast of the island of Taiwan . The western boundary forms the massif of the Central Mountains and the eastern boundary is formed by the Haian Mountains . On the western edge, the Xiuguluan River flows in a south-north direction and is fed by several tributaries from the central mountains. The municipality has an approximately rectangular shape with an edge length of 22 × 7 kilometers. The neighboring communities are Yuli in the north, Zhuoxi in the west, Changbin and Chenggong in the east, and Donghe and Chishang in the south. The last four are located in the southern neighboring district of Taitung . The climate is tropical and rainy and characterized by the monsoons .
The indigenous people of Fuli were Austronesian indigenous-Taiwanese peoples of the plains ('Pingpu'). Although the island of Taiwan had belonged to the Chinese Empire of the Qing Dynasty since the end of the 17th century , it was not until the second half of the 19th century, during the reign of Emperor Guangxu, that the Han Chinese immigrated to the area of later Fuli. Mainly they were members of the Hakka ethnic group. Immigration from western Taiwan increased during the Japanese rule (1895–1945). The population of Fuli reached a maximum in 1967 with more than 27,000 inhabitants, but decreased continuously in the following decades due to increased emigration.
