The Hehuanshan East Approach forms parts of the Central Cross Island Link in Central Taiwan (Taiwan is 70% mountains with some 258 peaks reaching over 3000m, the tallest peak Mt. Yushan is 3952m). While there is a minimum of 40km climbing to get to the start of the east approach, this top section that leads to the 3275m high summit (and the highest road point in NE Asia) is the steepest. The relentless grade over the 10km climb combined with the effects of riding at altitude makes this a very challenging ride. The climb features a false top with the final assault being particularly tough. Make it to the top and the satisfaction is huge along with superb 360deg scenery!
