There won’t be any of the white stuff in October but Snow Mt is an awesome hike year-round. Join us for this edition of our favourite, high-mountain hike.

If you have any problems, send an email to ross@taiwan-adventures.com

Snow Mountain is Taiwan’s second highest mountain and one of the most beautiful. On the way to the summit, we’ll cross another one of Taiwan’s top 100 peaks, Snow Mountain East, and pass through the beautiful Black Forest before climbing the alpine cirque to reach the top.

***PRICE***
If you’re a full time student or you’ve been on another overnight hike with us, the price is $8,500NTD. If this is your first hike with us, the price is $9,500NTD.

****ITINERARY****
Friday (October 23rd) – Meet at 7pm in Taipei at Wanlong MRT Station Exit 2. Please be on time! From there we’ll drive to Wuling Farm. We’ll camp at Wuling Farm for the night (the lower cabin is being renovated this year)

Saturday (October 24th) – Up around 6am, breakfast and then hike up to the 369 Cabin, passing by Snow Mountain’s East Peak. Sleep at the 369 Cabin.

Sunday (October 25th) – Up early (~2am) and head to the main peak for sunrise. Hike back down to Wuling Farm and then drive back to Taipei. We expect to be back around 8pm.
