Mountain Climbing

As you may notice, Taiwan is mainly covered with lush evergreen mountains that provide great pleasures to lovers of mountain climbing. Two ideal climbs are the peak of Yu Shan (Jade Mountain), which is the highest in Taiwan at 3,952m (12,966ft) and the Snow Mountain, Taiwan's second highest at 3,884m (12,743ft).

For a less appalling climb, Taiwan also offers its beautiful scenic mountains located between Taipei and the northern coastline. The popular one is the Seven Stars Mountain, which is the tallest of the northern peaks at 3,675ft. Prior arrangement is not necessary to climb these mountains.
