Described by one of the Bai Yue founding fathers as gentle and graceful, Mt. Neilinger (內嶺爾山) has been heralded as one of the most majestic grass peaks in Taiwan. Hiking among Taiwan’s high mountains certainly has its rewards.
Mt. Neilinger is ranked #60 of Taiwan’s Top 100 Mountains.
Mt. Lulu (轆轆山) and its corresponding East Peak, together form a pair of majestic and photogenic side-by-side peaks. For those photographers hiking in Taiwan’s high mountains, this will be a highlight (if the weather holds up).
Mt. Lulu is ranked #59 of Taiwan’s Top 100 Mountains.
Isolated from any other major Bai Yue routes or peaks, Mt. Junda (郡大山) is traditionally climbed in 1 day and generally requires hiring locals with high clearance 4x4s to transport you up the rutted forest road to reach the trailhead.
Mt. Junda is ranked #57 of Taiwan’s Top 100 Mountains.
The second peak on the Daba Peaks Route (大霸群峰), Mt. Yize (伊澤山) is a very short side trip off the main trail, located not far from Zhongba Cabin (中霸山屋), which is a smaller, secondary lodging option for hikers doing this peak.
Mt. Yize is ranked #52 of Taiwan’s Top 100 Mountains.
