Yushan National Park, Nantou
(4.4/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Yushan National Park is one of the nine national parks in Taiwan and was named after the summit Yushan, the highest peak of the park. The park covers a total of 103,121 hectares including large sections of the Central Mountain Range. The park contains over thirty peaks more than 3,000 meters in elevation, and two-thirds of the area within the park is above 2,000 meters. The elevation difference in the park is 3,600 meters, and there are many canyons, cliffs, and valleys.Because its remote location and entry control, Yushan National Park is not among the most visited national parks in Taiwan. Even so, the park still attracted 973,821 visitors in 2011.GeologyTaiwan, which owes its existence to the power of plate tectonics, remains a place of regular seismic activity. Examples of geological features such as fault lines, joints, and folding can be seen throughout Yushan National Park: Great Precipice (大峭壁) — Great Precipice (23.4683339 120.9396649) is located 1.2 km before Paiyun Lodge (排雲山莊) on the Yushan Trail. A precipitous cliff with fossils of ancient marine species and a few wavy marks in the rock can still remind us its oceanic past. Scree slope at the foot of Main Peak Fault scarp in Laonong (荖濃) between Main Peak and Batongguan (八通關) Fuzi Cliff (父子斷崖) and Guanshan Cliff (關山斷崖) The southern Cross Island Highway and Yushan Scenic Highway both offer countless opportunities to witness the area’s special geological features.

  • 有人曾經説過,愛臺灣三件必做事情就是:1.登玉山;2.游日月潭;3.環島。為什麼會有登玉山?因為沿途看到高山植物的變化,屹立不搖的在三千六百多公尺上。會讚嘆大自然的美㬌是如此的美好! 
  • The mountains in the Yushan National Park offer a fantastic panorama. It is possible to take walks in different claim categories. This is one of the most beautiful places in Taiwan and I would recommend anyone to visit them.

  • 玉山位於玉山國家公園內,可是東北亞第一高峰,高度3952M,可安排3天2夜時間前往,並請事先前往玉山國家公園網站參加抽籤程序,平入園證才可以去喔。

  • Climbing Yushan in one day was a very challenging but also unforgettable experience! I'd recommend it to anyone... as long as you are fit!
  • 这个地方实在是太美了。
  • Great place to camp but watch out for the lightning.
  • 老婆去過一起留影7人憑登頂證書或早期登頂照片可買玉山陳年高梁有折扣!
  • 還可以更認真推光台灣的山區活動
