Nantou Attractions

Nantou County ─ Hohuanshan ( Mt Hehuan)
Photo:清境家園景觀山莊
Hohuanshan is a popular mountain resort in Taiwan, and Hehuan means “harmonious happiness”. The mountain is located between Nantou and Hualien rising to an altitude of some 3,416 meters. Apart from its scenic beauty, it also has a unique ski slope, which has attracted hosts of visitors every winter. Hohuanshan is one of the few places in Taiwan to see snow.
The imposing Shungshia (Pine Snow) Building is the most beautiful structure in the area. Other well-known landmarks are Kenankuan (Obstacle Course Pass) and scenic mountain peaks, which affords magnificent views of the surrounding mountain range. For mountain climbers in winter, it is best to equip oneself with mountain boots, winter coats, thermos flasks, sunglasses and moisturizer. Be prepared to walk on muddy paths for about 2 to 3 kilometers. Drivers to this area must be ware of possible traffic congestion during wintertime.

Accomodation arrangement : There are two places where visitors can find lodging. One is the Shungshia (Pine Snow) Hostel near Wuling. It is operated by the Forestry Department. The other one is the privately owned Loyin (descending eagle) Villa.

A pleasant visit to the mountains ideally warrants a two-day and two-night stay.
