Taiwan Xueshan (Snow Mountain) Climb (26 to 28 Dec 2017)
26th December 2017 - 28th December 2017
Standing at a towering height of 3,886m, Xue Shan (雪山), which literally means Snow Mountain in English, is the second highest mountain in Taiwan. It is also the highest point of the Syue Mountain Range, which stretches northeast to southeast across Taiwan. This magnificent peak is located in the Shei-Pa National Park (雪霸国家公园) which is also home to 50 other mountains above 3000 meters. The trail goes through a variety of interesting ecosystems ranging from sub-tropical forests, grassland, cypress and cedar forests to the alpine shrubland. Snow, rarely seen in the other parts of Taiwan, is conversely commonly seen on this mountain in the winter months. With its whole peak beautifully covered in ablanket of snow – reminiscence Of Swiss Alps, this setting provides avid hikers a good opportunity to experience snow trekking on crampons. At the summit, the 360 degree panorama view at the summit with the morning sun rising from a sea of clouds and casting its first rays on the snowly landscape is a sight to behold.
