Climate
Wuling Quadruple
Wuling Quadruple
The Tropic of Cancer crosses Taiwan almost 100 km south of Shei-Pa National Park, which therefore lies entirely in the subtropics. Temperatures, however, vary a great deal according to the altitude. The range of altitudes in the park is from 760 meters above sea level in the Da-an River Valley to 3,886 meters at the top of Syue Mountain; average temperatures to be expected during the year are as follows:

Altitude
1,000 meters in January 9℃,in July 22℃
2,000 meters in January 5℃,in July 16℃
Geography and Geology
Dabajian Mountain
Dabajian Mountain
This is a region of magnificent mountains: within the park are 51 peaks over 3,000 meters high, like Syue Mountain, Dabajian Mountain, Wuling Quadruple Mountains, and Jhihjiayang Mountain. The range of altitudes in the park is from 760 meters above sea level in the Da-an River Valley to 3,886 meters at the top of Syue Mountain.

The name, Shei-Pa, refers to two notable mountains in the park: Syue Mountain and Dabajian Mountain. Syue Mountain is the highest point of the Syue Mountain Range, which stretches northeast-southwest across Taiwan from Sandiaojiao to the Jhuoshuei River. At 3,886 meters, Syue Mountain is the second highest park in Taiwan, only a little lower than Jade Mountain, 3,952 meters, the highest mountain in Taiwan, or in all Eastern Asia. Syue Mountain is one of "Taiwan Quintuple Mountains." Dabajian Mountain, 3,492 meters, is considered one of Taiwan's natural wonders because of its astonishing, awe-inspiring shape. An old legend of the local aborigines, the Atayal, tells how the whole human race originated from a couple who came out of a rock at the base of the mountain. The Atayal venerated Dabajian Mountain and would not ascend it without special reason; it was not until 1927 that mountain climbers from other places began to go up it.
