Hi, I'm planning for trip with my wife to Yushan Main Peak this Jan 14. However I've the following queries wrt transport arrangements:
1) We'll be traveling down from Taipei, should I transit via shuili (Taichung) or Chiayi to get to Tatachia? Should I stop by Alishan before heading for Tatachia? Is there any recommended budget accommodation at Alishan main bus station?
2) What are the transport options available? Public transport direct to Tatachia available?
3) In view of snowing during jan, will there be road closures?
4) What's the min. Grp size to trek up Yushan Main Peak if we're not engaging a guide?
