I climbed Mt. Xueshan last April 24 to 26. A satisfying climb. More scenic than Jade Mountain. A must-visit for trekkers if you ever find yourself in Taiwan.
I also want to comment on Taiwan Adventures (TA), our climb organizer, which was pointed out to me by a fellow climber when I expressed interest in Mt. Xueshan. TA did not disappoint. TA, c/o Neil Wade, was patient with our questions, knowledgeable about the trip, and was an attentive trail guide before, throughout, and right after the climb. He's also an excellent photographer.
