We climbed from the trailhead at Wuling Farm to the peak of Xueshan (Snow Mountain) and back starting on the evening of Sunday June 7th and returning Tuesday 9th in the afternoon. On the last day we got up at 1am to begin the ascent at 2am, arriving at the peak at 5:30am and then getting back down to the trailhead around 3pm that day. It rained the whole time! The trail is rough walking and it was a tough 2.5 days. I enjoyed hiking Yushan much more. Nevertheless, there was great camaraderie in the group, and we had a good time. Neil (our guide from Taiwan Adventures) is a great raconteur. He is highly organised and very safety conscious. We were well looked after and I highly recommend Neil to anyone planning to do this hike.

Four of us used Taiwan Adventures for a 3 day hike up to the summit of Snow Mountain (Xueshan) and I was very impressed with the overall organization of the tour as well as the confident guidance from Neil. Snow Mountain is a challenging adventure but under the professional care of Neil I felt safe and confident that we could tackle the hike. I highly recommend Neil and Taiwan Adventures for any of your travels. They offered us a professional service that was very well managed but most of all, they did so while keeping us safe and comfortable during the entire adventure experience.

3 friends and I completed the 2 1/2 day hike up Snow Mountain. The weather was abysmal but it was still fun. Neil, our guide from Taiwan Adventure was great. I am glad that we did not try and do this on our own. Cool, calm and professional. We all felt safe despite the fact that we were wondering if Noah's ark was going to appear.

Right away from the first e-mail contact I had a good feeling about the way Neil was helping us choose the hikes suitable for our time in Taipei. Besides all the things I expect from a hike (correct gear, advice, knowing the way, etc.) I was pleasantly surprised about the creativity in finding a healthy, portable lunch for me with tons of food allergies. Kudos for Neil for arranging that! Since I have a friend living in Taiwan, it is likely that I'll be visiting again. In that case, I'll definitely contact Taiwan Adventures for more hiking together!

My wife and I are used to hiking in the Alps (Europe) with help of local maps. We are fit and can do up to 12 hours of hiking, and more than 1500 vertical meters a day. Taiwan mountains are different and we found Taiwan Adventures to guide us on day hikes. The first email conversations gave us directly a good vibe and we looked forward to 4 days of hiking with a personal guide. No regrets. We had 4 excellent day hikes where Neil picked us up from our hotel downtown Taipei early morning. The guidance is above any expectation. Our guide (Neil) knows the route well, and guides us relaxed over mountain rims, with an attitude that breaths trust on any step we took. Without the guide, we would have been lost, or returned at the first difficult spot. On all our hikes there were every now and then spots where we got the right hints, faith and overcame our fear to continue. This is all credit to Neil. He really enabled us to take hiking to the next level. We enjoyed the best views, and look back on a great vacation. On our next trip to Taiwan, we surely will contact Taiwan Adventures again, and discuss other hikes we could do together.
