Climbing route

Depart in the dark

Because we are taking the sunrise trip this time, we must go up to the mountain in the dark. Due to the poor view in the early morning, if you want to walk slowly, it is recommended to start the boarding at 03:00 at the latest. "About 1K in the front section is a section of Hehuan North Peak that needs special attention. Because the trail is narrow and steep, and the difficulty of getting dark is greatly increased, I sincerely recommend that you start early if you can, slow down and walk steady and let your body take time. Adapt to the alpine environment

Tips for climbing mountains:

1. If you feel wheezing or even dizzy, you can go further by slowing down and reducing the pace.

2. Use your nose to breathe more to avoid inhaling too much cold air in your lungs and reduce water loss.

 

The most beautiful sunrise

Climbing all the way from the mountain trail to 1.3K, the sky gradually cools down and the view is wide. In the distance, you can see the famous landmark "Radio Reflector" of the North Peak. Congratulations, you have made it through the most difficult section of Hehuan North Peak!
 

On the way to the reflector, we met the most beautiful sunrise in the legendary Baiyue, which is the pink dreamy scenery before the sun has completely risen. At this time, the mountain friends have a tacit understanding to stop and put down the trekking poles. , Standing on the ridgeline facing the sunrise, enjoying the impact and touch of this Baiyue.
 

Arrive at the radio wave reflector

Although it is a sunrise group, it does not leave after watching the sunrise. Of course, you must take down this Baiyue when you get to this place! The sun gradually rose, and our pace of reaching the top continued, walking towards the well-known landmark "Radio Reflector" on the Hehuan North Peak Trail. The sun had risen completely when I reached the reflector.

 

Can meet the unquestionable light of Jesus

After leaving the reflector and heading towards the triangle point, at this moment, let us take a picture of the "Jesus Light" that is unacceptable. The sun that has just risen penetrated through the gaps in the clouds and mist, illuminating the mist in the air into bunches A beam of light falling from the sky.

 

Take down the top of Hehuan North Peak

The triangular point is located about 200 meters away from the reflector. If you walk 200 meters longer, the scenery you see is completely different. The ridgelines of the high-lower peaks clearly appear in front of you, which is worthy of the title of the highest peak of Albizia And in about 2 hours away, you can see this kind of scenery. No wonder many people say that this Baiyue is not only suitable for beginners, but even veterans who love mountains and become obsessed with it, because of its high CP value. !

 

Do not forget to catch the famous tree of the north peak and the eagle sharp stone

After hitting the top, we started to cut down the original road. It was still early on the return journey. Shanyou suggested to find the very popular photo spots of Hehuan North Peak, located at 0.9K "Eagle Point Stone" and "North Peak Famous Tree". The two attractions are about 20 minutes walk away. , I suggest that you can go when you have enough time to go down the mountain, because you will not want to miss the sunrise on the top of the mountain, and these two points are better to shoot when the sky is bright!

 

Orange cat's thoughtful suggestions

The north peak of Hehuana introduced this time is a high-altitude mountain, and the drop may be more than 20 degrees at low temperatures. Particular attention should be paid to keep warm, and when the weather is good, sun protection and hydration should be done at the same time. Because there is no shade on the ridgeline for long walking, it is easy to get sunburned. Although Huanbei Peak is an entry to Baiyue, it is still difficult. If you are new to Baiyue or do not have much mountaineering experience, please refer to the sunrise group itinerary that Xiaobian Orange participated in this time: https://8car. com.tw/goodseason/379
