About
Mt. Hehuan North Peak has an altitude of 3,422m, making it the tallest among the Hehuanshan group. From the trailhead, the hike to the peak and back takes 4-5 hours. The North Peak is Hehuanshan’s premier place for the viewing the Red-hairy Rhododendron; once past the trailhead you’ll find yourself amidst a sea of flowers, in a spectacular Red-hairy Rhododendron world.

Wow ... What a View!
Oct 2019
The scenery from here and in this area in general makes the effort to get here well worth the trouble. Pause and reflect on humankind’s insignificance when compared the the natural world.

Exciting trail - must go in early morning
Sep 2018 • Couples
Visited there during weekday
Took us 1-hour motorcycle ride fm guest house to the starting point
During our morning ride in 8am+, scenery was stunning.
Arrived starting point at 9am
Due to height attitude, we hiked slower in the beginning. Took us 1.5 hour to finish the first 2km and reached north peak. Trail to north peak was not too difficult - easy to medium range.
The challenge started on the trail between north peak and west peak. We were hiking in a very moist, steep and long down hill valley. When time reached 1130 am and we was about 1.4 km away from the west peak, fog was getting heavier and heavier. We decided to return without attaining the west peak for safety reason.
Highly recommended trail. Will do it again next time - start the trail at 6 am as the mountain started to get foggy by noon (in early sep). Allow 7-8 hours of hiking and no replenishment along the trail - bring enough water is a key.

Impossible to climb due to the weather at the end of April
Apr 2017 • Couples
For two consecutive days we travelled to the Mount Hehuan Service Station (the starting point for this walk) and for two days we decided not to attempt the north peak due to the horrendous weather we were experiencing at the end of April. Such a shame - but it's what we've come to expect in the high mountains - makes the clear days even more special.

drove from cingjing to hehaun shan north peak
Oct 2016 • Family
the drive up to the mountain from cingjing was quite easy and safe. along the way, the views were quite fantastic. reaching the peak, we parked the car and walked around. very scenic. some places we were not able to stop for a photo shoot because of the bicycle marathon taking place. still the trip was worth it. we did not do as most others to see the sunrise, although we wish we could.
