Hiking Jade Mountain

By Lydia, December 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Jade Mountain, or Yushan in Chinese, is Taiwan’s highest peak and the highest in northeast Asia at 12,965 feet (3,952 meters). This peak, along with Mount Kinabalu in Borneo and Mt Fuji in Japan, is part of what peak baggers refer to as the ‘Asian Trilogy.’ Standing on the summit feels like you’re on top of the world, especially on mornings when a sea of clouds hides all but the tallest peaks in a blanket of white. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Pacific Ocean and the Taiwan Strait from the top.
