Geocache Description:


View from Nanhu Master Peak (3742M).

Sign Post at SzYuangYaKo said : "The highest mountain of Nanhu is the North Peak of the Five Peaks in Taiwan. Nanhu is eighth ranked out of 100 as the most spectacular peaks for mountain climbers in Taiwan. Strong and wide, the giant mountain stands as a grand momentum and resembles for an emperor. The famous Upper and Lower Ring Valleys here are the remnants of Glacier Tubs in the Ice Age. Colorful blossoms in summer and flying snow in winter add to the beauty of Taroko National Park and illustrate the many seasons."
This is NOT an easy mountain to conquer, as a matter of fact, there were people who never made it back home. Although many improvement were made within the years over the trail condition and emergency shelter cabin. You still have to make all the preparation before the hunt. Safety is all that matters. Please refer to the attached image about the estimated time for the various trails, and Mountain Nanhu for some magnificent photos.
The cache is an 1cm diameter & 4cm long transparent cylinder located at Nanhu Master Peak. Obviously there is nothing inside it except the log paper, bring your own pencil or shoot a photo of your GPSr with the benchmark to claim the cache.
