Do you know the Baiyue 百岳 ?

Yushan is the EASIEST mountain in Taiwan, it’s the highest but the trailhead is also the highest!

Xueshan is the Second EASIEST mountain, the trailhead is already at high altitude.

Nanhu Dashan is the Third EASIEST mountain but it takes one more day, there are longer parts on flat land.
