Description 

. The south ridge route: the greatest alpine scene on Taiwan. The best choice to ease yourselves from the tense of consecutive days of intensive climbs.

. Routes on the south face: less popular because of usually poorer snow conditions. But if in good snow conditions, the climbs are much closer to Paiyun hut.


Getting There 

. To the routes on the south face and the south ridge, on the mid way from Paiyun hut to Yuanfeng shelter.
