Hehuanshan Point Trail

Hehuan Mountain used to be the hunting ground for the Atayal people before it became deserted and difficult to get to. After the Wushe-Dayuling Feeder road to the Central Cross-island Highway was completed, the mountain became the most celebrated snow watching spot in Taiwan due to its unique terrain and accessibility. Besides during the snow season, the high-mountain landscape and the cold temperate climate also make it a popular location for sightseeing and staying away from summer heat. Moreover, being a gateway to the Hehuan Peaks and Qilai Mountain Peaks, it has been one of the best places for mountain climbing. The trails in the Hehuanshan National Forest Recreation Area are located on the border between Renai Township in Nantou County and Xiulin Township in Hualien County, the source of the Dajia River, Liwu Creek and Zhuoshui River. After the Wushe Feeder Road to the Central Cross-island Highway was opened, the Hehuan Mountain Peaks became places for people to climb without heavy equipment. The trails mainly include the ones to go up to the Hehuan Main Peak, East Peak, West Peak and North Peak as well as Shimen Mountain and Hehuanjian Mountain.
