Introducing Hehuanshan / 合歡山介紹

Five of Taiwan’s most accessible top 100 peaks lie in the Central Mountain Range of Taiwan. The Central Mountain Range lies on the border of Nantou and Hualien counties. Due to its unique position, Hehuanshan is a gorgeous location to hike the high mountains, camp, and view some of Taiwan’s history. There was once an operating ski lift on the East Peak, which the remnants are still visible.

台灣最容易到達的100座山峰中有5座位於台灣中央山脈地區,中央山脈位於南投縣與花蓮縣交界處。其中由於合歡山獨特的位置讓他變成高山健行、露營和了解台灣歷史的絕佳地點,其中合歡山東峰甚至曾經有一個正在運行的滑雪纜車,現在仍然可以看到遺跡。

Hiking up to Hehuanshan North Peak looking at Hehuanshan East Peak

Hehuanshan East Peak Trail / 合歡山東峰步道

  • Total Trail Distance/步道長度: 1.9km
  • Total Hiking Time/步行時間: 1.5 – 2hrs
  • Total Elevation Change/期間海拔變化: 300m

The 3417 meter East Peak is #35 on Taiwan’s 100 Peak list. Because we are starting at a height of 3150 meters, we only need to climb 300 meters to reach the top. The East peak is considered to be an easy high mountain climb. Beginning at the former Ski Lodge, the trail climbs up old wooden stairs and dirt paths, past fallen ski lift towers and abandoned ski lift operating station, to the East Peak. For most hikers this climb takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour, one way. From the East Peak you can have a look at Hehuanshan North Peak to the north, and to the northwest you will see Hehuanshan Main Peak. This is an out and back trail, so once you’ve reached the peak head back the same route and on to another top 100 peak!

合歡山東峰海拔3,417m,為台灣百岳高度第35名,請大家放心,我們會從3,150m的高度出發,所以其實只需要爬300m就可以登頂。合歡山東峰被認為是一個相對容易攀登的山峰,從以前的滑雪小屋開始沿著步道走古老的木樓梯和泥土路,一路經過倒塌的滑雪纜車塔和廢棄的滑雪纜車營運站後到達東峰。對於大多數登山者來說,單程攀登只需要30分鐘到1小時。從東峰往北看可以看到合歡山北峰,往西北看則是合歡山主峰。東峰的步道這是一條往返的步道,所以一旦您到達山頂,就於相同的路線返回,然後再前往另一座百岳。

The Paoma Historic Trail is 6.6km and will take our group between 2.5 and 3 hours to complete.

Hehuanshan North Peak Trail / 合歡山北峰步道

  • Total Trail Distance/步道長度: 5.5km
  • Total Hiking Time/步行時間: 3 – 4 hours
  • Total Elevation Change/期間海拔變化: 473m
Hiking up to Hehuanshan North Peak

Hehuanshan North Peak is #34 of Taiwan’s Top 100. The trail is considered one of the more difficult of the out and back day hikes, the most difficult being the North to West peak hike, but this should not deter you. With a small pack and a good level of fitness you will be able to reach Hehuanshan North Peak in 1.5 to 2 hours. The trail itself starts off steep, with some stairs, but after 30 minutes or so it begins to level off to a more gradual climb, along a dirt hiking trail. The views along the trail are stunning, with many of Taiwan’s Top 100 peaks in view the whole climb up.

合歡山北峰是台灣百岳中第34名,這條步道被認為是要單日往返登山中難度最高的步道之一,其中最困難的是從北到西的高峰登山,但我們相信適時的挑戰自己是很好的選擇,帶著足夠登山小包和平時訓練好的身體狀況,我們將能夠在1.5到2小時內到達合歡山北峰。步道剛開始時較為陡峭且有一些樓梯,但經過大約30分鐘後開始趨於平穩,沿著一條泥濘的步道逐漸上升。沿途景色令人嘆為觀止,整個攀登過程中也可以看到許多台灣百岳的景色。


Hehuanshan Main Peak / 合歡山主峰

  • Total Trail Distance/步道長度: 3.7km
  • Total Hiking Time/步行時間: 45min – 1hr
  • Total Elevation Gain/期間海拔變化: 178m

Hehuanshan Main Peak is #37 on the Top 100 Peaks of Taiwan. The hike is considered quite easy, but being at high elevation oxygen can always feel short in supply. The path is simple, straight forward, and the peak offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The walk from Hehuanshan Lookout is roughly 30 minutes along the road.

合歡山主峰名列台灣百岳第37位,儘管登山的過程被認為相對容易,但在高海拔地區總是會感到氧氣供應不足,主峰的步道路徑簡單,筆直向前,山頂可以欣賞到周圍群山的美景。若從合歡山觀景台前往大約需要30分鐘。


Shimenshan/ 石門山

  • Total Trail Distance/步道長度: 2.6km
  • Total Hiking Time/步行時間: 30 – 50 minutes
  • Total Elevation Gain/期間海拔變化: 135m

At 3237 meters, Shimen Mountain is #66 on Taiwan’s 100 Peak list and is the easiest of Taiwan’s high peaks to climb. Shimenshan is the shortest hike up to one of the 100 peaks. The trailhead begins at the side of the road, near the cafe and heads up a nicely groomed stair and dirt path trail for about 750 meters. You can get up top between 10-20 minutes depending on your pace. Shimenshan can be done in such a quick turnaround, it is often coupled with either East Peak or North Peak on the same day.

石門山海拔3,237m,列為台灣百岳榜第66位,石門山也是到達百岳山頂所需時間最短的路程,因此被認為是台灣最容易攀登的山峰。登山口從靠近咖啡廳的路邊開始,然後沿著一條整潔的樓梯和泥土小鹿步行約750m,根據你的速度,你可以在10-20分鐘之間抵達山峰,也因為石門山能在較短的時間完成,往往與東峰或北峰排在同一天。
