The weather in northern Taiwan is notoriously bad in the winter and this year has been no exception. So f you’re going to hike in the rain, there won’t be much scenery to look, unless of course you visit a waterfall and the Sandiaoling Trail 三貂嶺 has waterfalls in abundance.

We’ve got two open hikes planned for February. The first is to Snow Mountain on the 10th-12th and the second is to Dabajianshan on the 25th-27th. February 27/28th are both holidays and so we’ve got a 4 day weekend then.
Snow Mountain is Taiwan’s second highest peak and a great climb. Some amazing scenery!

Dabajianshan is probably Taiwan’s most distinctive mountain. Look on the back of a $500NT note, that’s the one! It’s a great 3 day hike to this huge mountain and back.
