Yushan National Park, Taiwan


Yushan National Park (Chinese: 玉山國家公園; pinyin: yù shān gúojiā gōngyuán) is one of the eight national parks in Taiwan and was named after the summit Yushan, the highest peak of the park. The Park covers a total of 105,490 hectares including large sections of the Central Mountain Range. The Park contains over thirty peaks more than 3,000 meters in elevation, and two-thirds of the area within the park is above 2,000 meters. The elevation difference in the park is 3,600 meters, and there are many canyons, cliffs, and valleys.
Because its remote location and entry control, Yushan National Park is not among the most visited national parks in Taiwan. Even so, the Park still attracted 973,821 visitors in 2011.
