Have you ever wonder what it is like to wake up to a beautiful sunrise the next morning right at your own balcony? I have never thought of that in my life before as this is not something we could experience in the city, but I am able to experience it at SongXueLou.
As I was looking into where to stay for a night at Hehuanshan before my trip. I came across this hotel, which is the perfect accommodation and location for us because we wouldn’t want to go back down to Qingjing, the next nearest place to spend a night.
Song Xue Lou also known as Song Syue Lodge the highest hotel in Taiwan located at an altitude of 3,150m above sea level. The best and closest accommodation that leads to every trail in Hehuanshan. The top choice to stay for the seasoned hiker and nature lovers.

The room is clean and neat, perfect for a night stay. However, getting to the balcony is not that easy even though is right outside of our room. The balcony is higher than our room we have to climb up and out, but all these is worth it. For our dinner and breakfast, it is a simple meal not that fantastic but each and every dish is done nicely especially their vegetarian dish.
