Yuanzui-Shaolai-Xiaoxue National Trail

Yuanzui Shaolai Xiaoxueshan National Trail is in the Snow Mountains. It passes Yuanzui Mountain, Shaolai Mountain, Chuanxing Mountain and Anma Mountain. The section between Yuanzui and Shaolai is steep and visitors have to climb up rocks at some places. From the top of Yuanzui Mountain, the view is excellent. Zhuolan, Dongshi and Xinshe can be seen lying in the distance. In early spring, one can see not only layers and layers of mountains but also, if the timing is right, magnificent seas of clouds rolling up and down. The section from Shaolai to Xiaoxueshan has been developed from the mountain path used by the indigenous people and the forest patrol trail. The trail is on a smooth ridgeline and the view is unhindered. In different seasons, the mid-altitude scenery is different. At the 6.7km mark, there is a wooden observation deck. From there, one can see Anma Mountain and Chuanxing Mountain nearby and also Yuanzui Mountain, Shaolai Mountain and Xiaoxue Mountain in the distance.
