Taiwan Yushan (Jade Mountain) Climb (7 to 9 Oct 2016)

7th October 2016 - 9th October 2016

Registrations are closed for this event

Towering at a height of 3852m, Yushan (玉山) , which literally translates into Jade Mountain in English, is the tallest and one of the most beautiful mountain in Taiwan. In winter, its summit is often snow capped with such thick snow that its entire peak shines like a piece of stainless jade. Together with Mount Kinabalu and Mount Fuji, they form the Asia Trilogy (tallest mountains in the Far East minus Kamchatka and Australasia) of peak climbing. Yushan, located within the vast, pristine and rugged environ of Yushan National Park (玉山國家公園) has a well laid out system of trails, maps, markers, lodging and even eco-toilets; making it one of the most hiker- friendly and accessible over- 3000m peak in Asia to climb. The climb to the summit takes 2 days 1 night, and does not involve any technical climbing skills. The trail passes through a great variety of ecosystems ranging from the subtropical rainforests, fir forests, bamboo groves, alpine vegetation to the overlooking canyons, precipitous cliffs and plunging valleys amid rolling hills with overlapping peaks.
