How to make full use of your stay in Hehuanshan or Mt Hehuan for one night? In my previous post, I have covered our stay at the Songxuelou, the highest accommodation in Taiwan, where you can view the beautiful scenery right from your balcony.

There are a lot of trails here to choose from ranging from easy to difficult. The easy trail will take less than an hour to hike and the difficult trail will require a professional guide and a night stay at the mountain.

[Move] Taiwan – Transportation to HeHuanShan

Hehuanshan is a place where I wanted to explore but the transportation is not convenient if we do not drive. In addition, your driving skill has to be good because of the winding road up the mountain road.

Getting up there from Taipei is not near and it is time-consuming but if you love nature, hiking or wish to have a break from the bustling city this would be a good choice. As there are not much information in English about how to get there by public transport yet, thus this will be a detailed transportation guide from Taipei to Hehuanshan.
