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!

The Neng Gao Historic Trail 能高越嶺古道, like so many of Taiwan’s Historic trails, was originally built by the Japanese to help control and subdue the aboriginal tribes that lived in that area.  After some time, the occupying Japanese began a project to use the trail to build and maintain power lines that run from the west to the more remote east coast but this was delayed by the onset of World War Two.  Eventually the power lines were built by the Taipower company after the Japanese left Taiwan and they still remian today.
