food, clothing, accommodation and transport
  • Consider the weight, expiration date, nutrition equilibrium, and practical and simple utility when bringing food.
  • Carry high calorie food like candy so as to supply energy on the way.
  • Consider the weight and volume of garbage. Do not bring too much canned food.
  • If water is available in the mountain area, carry more dried food to lighten the pack.
  • Prepare at last 1-day reserve food.
  • To boost appetite, bring some appetizers or food of strong flavor.
  • To lighten the weight and lengthen the expiration time, meat should be without bone, cooked thoroughly, or pickled.
  • 3 major nutrition, fat, protein, and sugar, should be proportioned to 1: 1.1: 4.8.
  • In addition to 3 major nutrition, mineral and vitamin are also indispensable.
  • After the meal, use hot water, rather than detergent, to clean dinning utensils. 
  • Carry the food and waste left downhill. Do not bury or leave them in the cabin or shelter.
  •  Dress in 3 layers: sweat-shifting, warm-keeping, and protection layers.
  • Sweat-shifting layer clothes should be made from quick-drying cloth like polyester fiber rather than cotton cloth.
  • Female can wear quick-drying, sweat-shifting sports underwear.
  • People afraid of coldness can wear warm-keeping, sweat-shifting clothes in winter.
  • Warm-keeping layer clothes should be made from fleece, hollow fiber, or eiderdown.
  • Clothes in warm-keeping layer are various, with different weights. How to choose depends on personal preference.
  • Protection layer clothes should be able to resist the bad weather’s wind, frost, rain, snow, and ultraviolet rays.
  • Protection layer clothes vary from some-hundred-dollar common raincoats to some-ten-thousand brand raincoats. It depends on personal needs to select one.
  • To protect your head and avoid catching a cold, a woolen hat is necessary in the mountain area.
  • Socks should include two layers, sweat-shifting socks and woolen socks.
  • Since Taiwan’s climate is humid, mountain boots should be waterproof.
  • Several elements should be taken into consideration to the selection of the campground, for example, whether it can take shelter from the wind, whether its ground is flat, retreat route, and water source.
  • Standards to select a tent focus on comfortable extent, windproof, weight, waterproof, and difficulty in assembly.
  • It needs at least 50 meters away from the shelter or water to answer the call of the nature and bury it in the hole.
  • Do not have a campfire.
  • Do not make noise in the campground or shelter for respecting other climber’s rights.
  •  To boost appetite, bring some appetizers or food of strong flavor.
  •  When staying overnight in the shelter, please keep it clean and carry the garbage downhill. 
  • In East Syue Trail and Wuling Quadruple Mountains Trail, there are volunteers in duty. Please cooperate with them.
  • Timely supply water when marching forward.
  •  Maintain steady steps at a natural speed. Walking too fast or too slowly easily exhausts people.
  • Take more short pauses than long rests when walking in the mountain area.
  • On the mountain trail, climbers going downhill should give precedence to those going uphill.
  • To avoid getting lost, everyone entering the mountain area must bring with himself a map and compass.
  • To avoid damaging the mountain trails, please walk on the planned path rather than shortcut.
