Wuling Quadruple Mountains refer to four famous mountains－Pintian Mountain (3,524), Chihyou Mountain (3,303), Tao Mountain (3,325), and Kalahei Mountain (3,133)－from west to east. This 10-kilometer-long ridge composed of four mountains is part of Xue Mountain Range extending northeast. The reason to name it Wuling Quadruple Mountains Trail is because this trail starts from Wuling Farm. The peach-shaped mountain, Tao Mountain, impresses every visitor by its conspicuous outlook.
Though as long as 10 kilometers, Wuling Quadruple Mountains Trail is not hard to walk on, for the horizontal journey is smooth and clear enough. It is worth to arrange a 3- to 4-day trip to visit Wuling Quadruple Mountains, where you will definitely leave with unforgettable memory in life.

About 3,200 meters above sea level, Sancha Campground divides the mountain trail into two directions. The right one (northeast) heads toward Tao and Kalahei Mountains, while the left one (northwest) toward Xinda Hut. There is no water source here.
Xinda Hut is next to Sinda Pool, whose water is slightly polluted and in need of boiling before drinking.
Without water source, Taoshan Hut is close to the peak of Tao Mountain.
