Full description
Unlike the highest peaks in Taiwan which require you to travel mostly by foot, Hehuan mountain is accessible by public roads that lead up to an elevation of 3,275m. Reaching the peaks of Hehuan mountain does not require you to have any experience in mountain hiking. In fact, most trails in Hehuan mountain are well paved and only require an average of one to two hours to complete.

Day one starts with visits to a few highlights of Hualien and Taroko Gorge, including Chishingtan Beach, Swallow Grotto and Tianxiang. After a leisurely morning in Taroko National Park, the ascent to Hehuan mountain begins, with stops in between at unique sights like Xibao elementary school (a boarding school that has an organic farm), Bilu Sacred Tree (a 3,200 year old tree) and Guanyuan gas station (highest elevation gas station in Taiwan at 2,374m). Upon reaching 3,200m, the true adventure begins. Enjoy a multitude of high mountain views of Hehuan and the surrounding mountain ranges with easy hikes to different peaks like the Hehuan Jianshan trail (200m to peak) and Shimenshan trail (800m to peak). In the evening, after checking in to your accommodation and dinner, you can enjoy some stargazing at viewing spots near your lodging.

Day two starts of with a hike on the East Peak trail (1km to peak). Once a ski area in the 1980s, the trail offers amazing views of Qilai mountains’ ridges and peaks. Alternatively, take a stroll up the Main Peak (2km to peak). A relatively flat and well-paved trail, the main peak trail offers 360-degree views of the area. After an active morning, take a break with a photo stop at Wuling. At an altitude of 3,275m, this road is famous for being the highest point in Taiwan that is accessible by vehicles. Then, take a break as and descend back to Tianxiang for lunch. The two-day tour then ends off with stops at two more highlights: Eternal Spring Shrine and Qingshui Cliff.
