Qilai Mountain Trailhead :

You MUST HAVE the Taroko National Park Permit 太魯閣國家公園生態保護區入園許可證

+ the Police Permit 入山許可證 : you can be checked at the cabins or randomly on the trail

What if you don’t have permit ? CLICK HERE

 

Buy your own insurance in your country

 

NOTE : Reach top of Qilai North Peak before 9 am ! because at 9.15 am it’s often in the fog, then you go to Qilai Main Peak

NOTE : Qilai North Peak is VERY CHALLENGING and SCARY, there are ropes left over there to help you climb but do not trust at 100%, do not put all your weight on these ropes.

    hello, I’m guy from Malaysia. Wish to plan hiking Qilai Mt on early April. Is there any group I can join? Or is it possible hike alone.

      Selamat pagi Benny ! Yes it is possible to hike alone, but you + one family member just have to sign a SOLO HIKING waiver for the Taroko National Park. You print it, both of you sign then make a photo and send them within your application form. On the trail you will find other hikers to go with, anyway the trail is easy to follow. Qilai mountain is very challenging but we met many 60-70 years old grandmas at Qilai North Peak !!!
