Our hiking guide, Chase, was incredible. He is very knowledgeable about Snow Mountain/Taiwan's landscapes and is clearly very passionate about his job. He arranged for us to stay one night in an aboriginal village, which was very interesting. One girl from our trip was sick and very weak throughout the hike, but Chase was very patient and ensured that she was doing okay the entire time. Following our hike, he brought us to a beautiful hot spring for our bodies to relax. Overall, Chase was extremely accommodating and we would highly recommend Chase as a hiking guide for any group wanting to hike in Taiwan. And roundTAIWANround were very helpful and quick to respond to messages. We really appreciate their help in this process.

about Snow Mountain - 2D2N Hiking Tour

Snow Mountain (Xueshan) is the second highest mountain peak in Taiwan at 3886m above sea level. As a famous site in Xueba National Park and relatively hiker-friendly, it has attracted thousands of outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. Even though Snow Mountain peak is located on the boundary of Miaoli and Taichung, it is actually easier to reach from Yilan. The trailhead of the Snow Mountain Hiking trail is in Wuling Farm, Yilan. Generally, it takes 2 days and 2 nights to complete a hiking round trip. On this trip, you will pass a massive field of fir black forest and the shape of a glacier cirque, giving you the opportunity to witness the largest glacial traces in Taiwan. You will also have the chance to meet two of Taiwan’s Hundred Peaks, Snow Mountain East Peak (3201m) and Snow Mountain Main Peak (3886m). From the summit of Snow Mountain, extending to the north and reaching the far-away Dabajianshan; Dabajian Mountain, this stretch of mountain ranges is the famous Holy Ridge (聖稜線). Only those brave enough to reach the peak of Xueshan have the opportunity to experience the beauty of this area.
