We hired a driver to take us on a day trip from Sun Moon Lake to Yu Shan National Park’s Tataka Visitor Center at the end of the twisting and winding Provincial Highway 21. Permits and preparation are required if you are serious about scaling the various peaks of Yu Shan (Jade Mountain). However, the trek from the Visitor Center... More

Many groups tours for sun rise but we avoid the crowd by driving through the mountains ourselves around mid day, although it was raining and foggy, amazing experience.

Upon hearing of the highest mountain in Taïwan (3952m), we wanted to go up Yushan/Jade Mtn. The view from up there is breath-taking and very much worth the hassle. The uphill is somewhat but the path is well indicated and easy, and getting to the summit and back took us 7 hours with light equipment (and running shoes for the... More

The highest place you can go in Taiwan (3900meters), you need permit but it is worthy, sunrise here was probably the best one in my life. There is a trek trail for maybe 6-7 hours walking

We drove through Yushan National Park from Sun Moon Lake on the way to Alishan National Forest. Even though the road was quite bumpy with many turns, I didn’t want the ride to end. The forest was so green and the clouds covered the tops of the trees and it seemed heavenly. I was taking pics all along the road... More

Last summer I had the oportunity of climbing the Yushan Main Peak, and it was a most impressive experience. The path that leads to the summit is both full of beauty and hard. Is worthy to stop and watch the wonderful ancient trees that surround the way.

We went in June, 2015 for a three days hiking plan. Stopped by the visitors center before entering the main gate to the highest peak. Of course the view on the top was amazing, the sunrise with the cloud river is the best reward after 6 hours hiking + 3 hours climbing. You also could skip the hiking and purely... More

We had not appreciated the mountainous center of Taiwan before this visit (you mean it is not all flat?). Certainly Mt. Yu (or Yushan) at 3,952 m (12,966 ft) is the apex of this region. We toured the area by car and still were able to experience the magnificent vistas that stretched in every direction.
