Topic: Jade Mountain / Yushan
Yùshān (玉山), also known as Jade Mountain or Mt. Jade, is the highest mountain in
Taiwan with
an elevation of 3,952 meters. It has also been claimed to be the tallest
mountain in Northeast Asia.
Mt. Jade receives its name due to the fact that during the winter season, the
snow-capped peak
shines like stainless jade. Yùshān is one of the favorites among Taiwanese
mountain climbers.
The trail is well-maintained and there’s even a lodge (Páiyún Lodge, 排雲山莊) near
the
summit!
Tataka Visitor Center (塔塔加遊客中心) is the starting point of the trail. The trail is
about 10.9
kilometers long and takes about 19 hours to finish a round trip. Note: You need
to get a permit to
enter and climb. The visitor center is closed every second Tuesday of the month.
Also, there is no
convenience store, so you have to get your drinks and snacks for the hike from
somewhere else.
