Tianshangshan is 430m high and stretches across Sanxia, Xindian, and Tucheng. The area is famous for its glorious Tung tree blossoms that bloom from the end of April until early May, which we hope (but are not guaranteed) to see on this trip. The Taiwanese call it April or May snow because the falling blossoms that cover the area look like snow falling. During this hike we will visit the beautiful Chengtian Chan Temple, built by monks in 1951. It is a quiet and graceful place and a popular tourist spot. The hike is moderately strenuous with many steep stairs. The trail, mostly paved with stone and wood, is about 10km long (including 3km on the road) with 500 meters ascending. We recommend a reasonable level of fitness for this hike. Wear sturdy shoes with a good grip; bring water, snacks and sun/rain protection.
