We will meet at Taipei Main Station and go directly to Shei-Pa National Park. Once arriving at the park, we will start the short one hour trek to Qika cabin for the night!
The next day, we will trek about 6 hours to the base of Xue Mountain and stay at the famous 369 hut with its lodging at the base of Xue mountain. prepare for the following day’s summit.
An early start, a sunrise hike, and depending on the season, a snow covered trek, and morning summit to leave you exhilarated! This is where we get to practice very high altitude hiking as we go above 3000 meters and take in majestic views of Shei-Pa. We will return to 369 hut and gather our gear to move back down the trailhead and make our way back to Taipei.
