Notes
【Safety precautions】
1. The weather in plum rain season is cold and unpredictable in the mountain region. Mountain hiking trails and bridges may be frozen and slippery. Visitors (with permit) entering the park should be aware of the route conditions and proceed with caution. Visitors entering the park during this period should be equipped with winter climbing gears to prevent sudden change in weather for safety! 
2. The permeable soil of the mountain (even worse in rain) may cause the route surface to crumble or create rockfalls. Therefore, anyone engages in hiking activities is recommended to inquire the current road condition first (includes connecting roads) and evaluate the accessibility! 
3. Partial section of the Batongguan Hiking Trail at the Yushan northern saddle is closed due to crumbled surfaces and severe soil lost from the above. A bridge is found to be severely damaged and impossible to cross. 
4. The permeable soil of the mountain may cause the route surface to crumble or create rockfalls. Please be aware of your own safety when entering the park. Stay alert whether the plants on the slopes are intact. Look out for any large portion of the ground surface is being exposed, or debris falls off occasionally. Especially after heavy rain, a large volume of water in sand and rocks may have a high possibility of causing a debris slide or rock avalanche with thermal expansion on a sunny day. 
5. If you want to pass through any connective roads to the outside, please call the “management Branch” to find out the current situation in order to avoid inaccessible sections. Drive with care!  Please visit “Highway Disaster Information System” at (http://bobe168.tw/) or “Provincial Highway Disaster Disruption APP” to inquire the newest road condition real-time. 
6. Please inquire about the road condition before going on a trip to ensure a safe journey! Return home safely!
