A popular attraction among locals, Hehuan Mountain (Hehuanshan) serves as one of the only places in Taiwan where visitors can see snow. To reach the site, take a car, taxi, or tour van up the Hehuanshan Road. From here, you can embark upon a 1 km (.6-mi) trail that ends at the mountain's summit, where you'll be treated to expansive views of the surrounding nature, specifically Taroko Gorge National Park. Many tourists choose to come here in the middle of the night or early morning for stargazing or sunrises. It is common to see snow here during the winter months, as the mountain's peak is 3,416 m (11,207 ft) high. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Nantou using our trip planner.

I went here last april for the sunrise and it was amazing, we even able to see the milky way and unidentified object entering the atmosphere. Beware as its really cold due to strong wind so bring an extra jacket. Better to stay around qingjing farm so they can pick you up around 4am
Hehuan Mountain is a good place to visit. The natural scenery is very beautiful and spectacular, and the fruits of the local specialties are naturally delicious. There are many places to visit in the mountains, such as Cingjing Farm, Wuling, etc... The air is very fresh and it is worth a visit.
