DIY Hiking Snow Mountain in Taiwan for CHEAP! Update May 2019
Save your money ! Born from a Singapore girl idea, Here is the regularly updated DIY guide for Xueshan Hike in Taiwan :
ITINERARY of Xue shan hike :
- Hike starts at Wuling Farm Xueshan Trailhead (2200 m altitude) – Metres above sea level
- with 2 km to Qika cabin (2500 m altitude)
- followed by 4 km to Xueshan East Peak (3150 m altitude) via “Crying slope”
- then 1 km to 369 cabin (3100 m altitude),
- finally 4 km to the summit of Snow Mountain = Xue Shan (3886 m)
- It’s a total of 11 km going up and down.
It’s not very difficult to go Hiking Snow Mountain but you have to wake up very early to grab a parking space at the trailhead !
First of all, from Taipei, it takes more than 3 and half hours by car to join Wuling Farm then 20 min to arrive at the trailhead.
It takes ONE DAY by public transportation from Taoyuan to Taipei to Yilan to Wuling Farm to Xueshan trailhead !
