  • Water at Trailhead of jinjiang Mountain T97 E277278/N2691615

    Since Piaodan Pool probably dries up, climbers should prepare enough water for one day usage at the creek in front of the trailhead. Besides, about 10-minute walk away from the trailhead, the second creek is rich in water too.

  • Sailiangjiou Campground T97 E276471/N2693783

    Around 2,700 meters high, this campground is a platform surrounded by the pinewoods. Tents can be stationed here, without water. There used to be a pluviometer but removed already.

  • Piaodan Hut T97 E275846/N2694443

    Lying next to Piaodan Pool, this hut can contain 6 to 8 people. Piaodan Pool never dried up before, but has happened several times in recent years. Since water source is unstable, it is better to prepare some water near the trailhead.

  • Former site of Syueshan Cabin T97 E274073/N2696732

    Built in 1929, Syueshan Cabin could contain 100 people at that time, becoming a platform now. Water is in the creek on the northeast.
