Hehuan Mountain (Hehuanshan), Nantou County

A popular attraction among locals, Hehuan Mountain (Hehuanshan) serves as one of the only places in Taiwan where visitors can see snow. To reach the site, take a car, taxi, or tour van up the Hehuanshan Road. From here, you can embark upon a 1 km (.6-mi) trail that ends at the mountain's summit, where you'll be treated to expansive views of the surrounding nature, specifically Taroko Gorge National Park. Many tourists choose to come here in the middle of the night or early morning for stargazing or sunrises. It is common to see snow here during the winter months, as the mountain's peak is 3,416 m (11,207 ft) high. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Nantou County using our trip planner.
