One the best and toughest hikes that can done from Taipei in a day, Beichatian Mountain, is a wonderfully remote hike into the hills to the east of the North Cross-Island Highway. There are several trails that lead to the peak and our particular favorite begins at Xiaouwlai (Little Wulai). The beginning section of the trail leads to a grove of ancient redwoods, hundreds if not thousands of years old. Some are even big enough for hikers to walk through! The second section leads to the main peak and is a rough and exhilarating scramble over bare rock and mud. On a clear day, we will get superb views of the surrounding mountains from the top. Autumn is a particularly good time to visit this area when the leaves of the Taiwan Beech trees briefly change color and drop, blanketing the trail in golden oranges and reds.

What to explore at Beichatian Mountain Hike Trip?

This hike requires a full day so an early start is necessary.  We’ll leave Taipei around 6am and begin hiking at 8am.  Hikes going solely to the redwoods can be arranged and this only takes a half day, leaving us some time to explore some of the gentler trails in the Xiao Wulai Scenic Area.
