Often veiled in mist, the scenery of a continuous sea of clouds that reflects the setting sun can at times create the illusion of being surrounded by misty mountains. With its mild climate and four distinct seasons, the temperatures at Hehuanshan are consistently low throughout the year. As the scenery varies greatly, it is the best spot to view and admire the characteristic landscape of Taiwan’s mountains. Springtime, from April to May, is the season when Rhododendron pseudochrysanthum Hayata is in full bloom. Ornamented with the dazzling pink and white sea of flowers, the major flower viewing hotspots include the four tourist attractions of Xiaoqilai Trail, Mt. Shihmen, Mt. Hehuan East Peak and Mt. Hehuan Point. There are also the evergreen forest boundary formed by Taiwan white fir and Yushan cane and alpine-limited birds such as Alpine accentor, Vinaceous rosefinch, White-whiskered Laughingthrush among others. Instead of striving for the summit, stop to enjoy the extensive view on the way.
