Beautiful top of the world green grass slopes. But everyone has gotten the memo. Crowds can spoil heaven and lay waste to utopia. Take some side trails. Look grandly and inhale. You'll be happy you came.

The road uphill is narrow, long and winding, in a way dangerous, although it is scenic after you get higher than the dense fog. Biggest concern is with the drivers. Most of them do NOT observe the basic manner of giving way yo uphill traffic....More

Our drive on the way to the mountain was rewarded with breathtaking views of the mountain ranges. The view here beat Alishan by a mile, and it is free, with very few tourists. However, the road is quite narrow at some places, and you will...More

We did not get to see the majestic views as it was raining with misty view. It's cold up in the mountains, so do prepare a warm jacket when visiting. We passed several cyclists and hikers along the way, even during the late evening time.

We have to wake up at 3am to take the local mini bus to ascend to the mountain. That day, the sky is clear and not misty and we manage to watch the sunrise. Indeed it was very beautiful and the surrounding natural scenery is...More

If you go from Hualien to Cingjing, you can stop to do the trails along Hehuanshan. The weather though unpredictable, is generally better in the morning. We spent one afternoon walking in thick clouds and hardly saw a view, but the morning sunrise gave us...More

We heard so much about this mountain and made the trip by private taxi from the Taichung HSR Station. Glad I was not driving the tricky and narrow winding road. This explains why normal coach/buses cannot navigate up to the pass. The stops at Cingjing...More

We are keen walkers and love the mountains but we were unable to appreciate Hehuan because of two days of thick cloud (27 and 28 April 2017). Indeed we had constant torrential rain for over 24 hours. On both days we were out for 5.00am...More

Just around 30-minutes ride by coach from Cingjing Farm and you can completely walk into the wonder of Taiwan's wild nature.

Altitude wise I think it is ok. However, we did not go to Taroko Gorge via Hehuanshan, so I cannot comment about the road conditions beyond Hehuanshan. We took the conventional east coast way from Taipei to Hualien by train... More
