Snow Mountain – Dec 13-15

This hike takes place at the beginning of snow season, so there’ll be a chance of some snow. Snow Mountain is undoubtedly at it’s most beautiful in the snow, however it does make the hike much tougher. Please consider your fitness before deciding to join.

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

The Wuling Sixiu

The Wuling Sixiu – Nov 22-24

The Wuling Sixiu is a group of 4 mountains. The ‘si’ meaning four and the ‘xiu’ meaning excellence. The mountains are, Kelayeshan, Taoshan, Chiyoushan and Pintianshan, and they can be hiked over 3 days in the Sheipa National Park. They make up the northeastern part of the Holy Ridge O-route.

It is a pretty tough hike, with some very steep sections and the odd bit of scrambling. However, the hike is a lot of fun and every bit as beautiful as some of Taiwan’s more famous mountains.

On this hike we’ll hike to the top of Chiyoushan and Pintianshan covering two of the four peaks.

This is an OVERNIGHT trip leaving Taipei on Friday Nov 22nd and returning to Taipei on Sunday Nov 24th. We’ll spend two nights camping or staying in cabins. Tents will be provided if needed.

Although the hike doesn’t require any much technical climbing ability, it is in the high mountains and is a VERY TOUGH HIKE. You will be expected to help carry some of the group’s equipment as well as your own. Please consider your ability before signing up.
