North Daba Trail usually refers to the trail that starts from the Cinsbu (Jhensibao) Divine Trees( located at Cinsbu Tribe of Jianshih Township), followed by Mayang Mountain(2,864M), Nanmayang Mountain (2,933M), Mayang Pond and Dabajian Mountain. The beginning of the trail was once the hunting path of The Atayal Tribe. The height ascends from 1,600M (Cinsbu) to almost 3,500M (Dabajian Mountain). Since the altitude difference and topographic changes is significant, the difficulty of North Daba Trail is also higher than Daba Peaks Trail.
Because part of the trail directly passes through Arrow Bamboo bushes, it could be hard to follow the correct trail. We suggest you to hire the local aboriginal guide from Cinsbu or Shinkong Tribe in order to prevent you from getting lost.
