The North Peak of Snow Mountain (雪山北峰) lies on the north ridge of Snow Mountain’s Main Peak. Typically, it’s too far out of the way for most hikers to do as part of the normal 2 or 3 day ascent to Snow Mountain’s Main Peak.
For those with more interest or a little more time to kill, they can add a day and traverse the north ridge and spend a night at Snow North Cabin (雪北山屋), which is quiet, isolated, and only 30 minutes from the peak.
Typically doing this peak requires a 4-day itinerary and a bit more fitness and experience than just the main peak, as it does require longer distances (at altitude) and slightly more demanding conditions.
