Altitude of Yushan

Do you know the height of Mt. Jade, the tallest mountain in Taiwan?

Since the start of the measurement technique more than a hundred years ago, Mt. Jade has grown from 3950m to 3997m. With the erection of a bronze statue of Mr. Youren Yu at the top, Mt. Jade became 4000m tall and now it turned to 3952m. So how tall is the Mt. Jade exactly?

The reason for the height shifting of Mt. Jade was the differences in measurement technique and methods at then; so different heights were generated.

At present, the real height of Mt. Jade is 3952m. So how tall is it then? If comparing with Taipei 101- once the tallest building in the world, the height of Mt. Jade equals 7.7 Taipei 101 buildings.
