 ▍About Taiwan / Mountains 



Taiwan's mountains are attracting the attention of hikers from all over the world for their height, which rivals the Alps and the Rocky Mountains.



At a altitude of 3275 meters, Wuling is to the north of Kunyang and is the highest spot of Taroko. Except to the west, there is a clear view of the surrounding mountains. The platform on the east side provides the most suitable place to view the scenery. The mountain landscape varies. It is the highest point on any Taiwan highway.


Hehuanshan National Forest Recreation Area

Mt. Hehuan, despite its altitude of more than 3,000 meters, has a road

that goes right across it, making access very convenient.


It is the best place to see snow in the tropics, and escape from

the summer heat. In as little as one day, you can travel the highest road

in East Asia, and take the many hiking paths that lead off the main road.


These are usually short and always safe. Mt. Hehuan, Taiwan's "tourist mountain," rivals the island's other high peaks in scenery and atmosphere, yet it is easily reachable by car or on foot.
