Popularly known as “Jade Mountain” or “Mt Jade” (玉山), Yushan is the highest mountain in Northeast Asia standing at 3952m.

With panoramic views, overlapping mountains, and deep, plunging valleys, Yushan National Park is well known for its scenery, sunrises, sunsets, geological features, and views of the clouds from above. Sea of clouds often fills the valleys, giving you the impression that you are standing on top of the world. Indisputably, Yushan itself is the focal point of the Park.

Join fellow trekkers from Taiwan and other parts of the world on this popular trek and reward yourself with a great sense of satisfaction standing on the summit.

A blend of pain and pride, this trek will really spice up all your senses! Put on your trekking boots now!
