The little brother of Mt. Dabajian, Mt. Xiaobajian (小霸尖山) is special and significant in its own right.
Located slightly past Mt. Dabajian, hikers have the opportunity to walk over the famous ILOVEYOU platform, where local Taiwanese often spell out cute messages or pictures with small stone. Once past here, hikers will get to this peak, which is special because of it’s unique, pointy shape that requires some semi-vertical rope and rock climbing to summit.
While intimidating, the peak itself is actually very safe and well developed, as long as respect and caution are exercised, and is one of the highlights of the Daba Peaks route.
