Hehuanshan


合歡山









Introduction


Hehuanshan (合歡山) is a 3,416 meters high mountain in central Taiwan. The peak lies on the boundaries of Nantou and Hualien counties and is within the Taroko Gorge National Park. Summer is delightfully cool, and highly scenic as different alpine flowers bloom from May to September. Autumn and spring are wonderful time for hiking. In Autumn, there is a higher possibility to witness “sea of clouds”. With certain weather condition in winter, snow covers the landscape and definitely here is full of tourists.


Notice


Hehuanshan is 3000 meters above sea level. The air pressure here is around 35% lower than on the group. The temperature is around 5~15°C in day time, and around -5~5°C at night. It's fine for most people to visit here for short period. Taking photos and see this gorgeous scenery is no problem. However, it's not recommended to hike long distance trail, such as Hehuan Norht Peak or East Peak, if you don't exercise regularly. 

  • Wear heavy coats, gloves, and a scarf if you want to walk around here longer than 10 mintues, espeically when you see stars and wait for sunrise.
  • It's not recommended to visit Hehuanshan for elders, especially older than age 60.


Hotels / B&Bs / Minsus


There are only two choices of accommodation in Hehuanshan. Ski Villa is cheaper (TWD1000) and more like a 5~7 beds mixed dorm. Song Syue Lodge is a hotel with food service, and provide double bed private room (TWD2440~3700) and family room (TWD4250~5900). Due to thin air and low temperature above 3000 meters sea level, it's better to stay in Song Syue Lodge because of its well facility, especially for its heater. Booking advance is required.

During Winter period (Jan 2014), will we be able to go star-gazing + sunrise?

Of course, as long as the weather is good. The best part of visitint Hehuanshan in winter is snow. You may see sunrise with white snow on the mountains. It's really beautiful. However, I haven't experienced it on my own.
