I blogged about climbing Snow Mountain during the winter earlier in the year so I won’t write many details of the hike. Last time we went, the mountain was covered in deep snow and despite our best efforts we didn’t get to the top, just shy by 300m. This time we got a permit at the last minute to be in the 369 hut for Friday night which meant that we had to drive to Wuling Farm after work, hike up to 369 at night, sleep for a few hours (earplugs recommended) then get up, hit the peak and come down on Saturday. We got lucky with the weather. It was cool and dry and we made it up and down ok but I would suggest to anyone wanting to do this hike to add an extra day/night.

Yushan, also known as Jade Mountain, is the tallest peak in Taiwan and the tallest in Northeast Asia. It is a beast of a mountain and from a distance, looks near impossible to climb but in reality, apart from the last 400m, it’s not too bad, providing you’re in shape and the weather is kind to you!
