*A New Example for Alpine Facilities in National Parks- The Banan Shelter Open on February

Shengleng Trail (Holy Ridge Trail) is the trail that links Xue Mountain and Dabajian Mountain, and it is the most famous trail in Shei-Pa National Park. There are on average 3,000 people who filed application to climb this trail in recent years. In order to service climbers, Shei-Pa National Park Headquarter built two shelters alone the trail near Sumida Mountain and North Peak of Xue Mountain, and because the old Banan Shelter was worn out, the new Banan Shelter, alone with new toilet, were built next to the original shelter last year. The new Banan Shelter now holds 15 beds and was open on February, 2013. Because of the new shelter, climbers will no longer need to bring tents. With less gear required, the enhanced amenity should improve the safety of the trail.

To make the new shelter more sustainable, many professionals were brought in to form a consulting group during the designing phase by Shei-Pa National Park Headquarter. These new features includes Environmental inducted Design, Water collection, storage, and usage, Clean alternative energy collection and usage, Energy efficient shelf, Low carbon footprint and recycled building material, Smart and efficient equipment. During the construction period, all material and equipment were flown in by helicopter. By doing so, not only did they minimize the influence on trials by man, but also reduced the construction time and the impact on nature due to the construction. “Because the weather changes rapidly in the mountain, it was difficult to construct the shelter. We even had to halt the construction several times due to snow. It was very tough on the workers,” said Chin Lin, director of Shei-Pa National Park Headquarter. “I appeal to climbers for cherishing this shelter, which did not come easy. During the stay, climbers should keep the shelter, restroom, and the surrounding area clean, and should also bring home what they bring up to the mountain so we can all enjoy and protect the nature.”
