Itinerary introduction


Still wondering where the first Baiyue is going? Snow Mountain Summit is a good choice!

Snow Mountain is the second highest peak in Taiwan. As the first time you want to try to climb Baiyue, have you been discouraged by hearing it?


>>> Feel unfamiliar with high-altitude mountains? Don't want to live in a mountain house? Afraid of altitude sickness? Worried about needing a heavy load or not being physically fit? Tired of driving long distances? Is it troublesome to apply for lottery for accommodation?

do not worry! Orange Cat will provide you with all the services you need!


On the first day of this route, Wuling Farm was arranged for you. In the evening, you stayed at a nearby comfortable B&B. After eating and drinking, you were ready to challenge the Snow Mountain Peak on the second day.
Xueshan Mountain is the mountain with the lowest difficulty and the shortest distance among the snow mountain peaks. The terrain and road conditions are good. It is very suitable for the novice Baiyue single attack route.

> The top of Xueshan Mountain has a very wide field of vision, and the mountains such as Hehuan Peak are unobstructed
> Experience climbing a mountain under the stars and reaching the top with the sunrise
> If you are lucky, you can see long-maned goats, mountain goats, monkeys and other animals

It will definitely be a very fresh experience for you to climb Baiyue for the first time!

▲ The view from the top of Xueshan Mountain is very good, and the mountain tops such as Hehuan Peaks, Wuling Four Shows, and the Central Point of Nanhu Lake are unobstructed.

 

▲ From the top of Xueshan Mountain, you can see the peaks of Pintian Mountain and Taoshan Mountain.

 

▲ The triangle point of Xueshan Mountain is very suitable for taking pictures

 

▲  After climbing the Mount Xueshan Mountain, lying on the grassland on the top of the mountain, basking in the sun and looking at the sky, I enjoyed it very much

 

▲On the way to the top of the mountain, the sunrise seen from the gap in the woods, the warm sun shines on the body, this moment will never be forgotten, and you must experience it if you have the opportunity

 

▲ Luckily, we met a long-maned goat, and we are not afraid of people at all. I heard that there is a high chance of seeing a long-maned goat in the snow-capped mountains.

 

▲ The scenery seen at high altitudes is completely different from that of intermediate mountains!

 

▲ The long ridgeline, when you can see the opposite hill, always feels very close but is actually very far away, it takes a little perseverance!

 

▲ The Snow Mountain Shop at the entrance of the Snow Mountain Mountaineering sells delicious ice cream. Be sure to have a drink after going down the mountain!

 

▲The legendary snow mountain crying slope, adjust your breathing and walk slowly, you will find that it is not as difficult as you imagined, waiting for you to challenge
