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 !
Do you want to hire a driver to save time?
If you have experience hiking high mountains then you do not need a hiking guide.
But last year, too many accidents happened and we can NOT recommend anymore to do it SOLO. The trail is easy for us but there are still people who get lost, who hurt themselves, who do not respect the rules of the high mountains.
So it belongs to each one to take his own responsibility.
