Many rivers and one mountain range (the Snow) run through this rugged 768-sq-km national park in northern Taiwan. Shei-pa National Park (雪霸國家公園; Xuěbà Guójiā Gōngyuán) is home to 51 mountain peaks of over 3000m each, and is the primary source of drinking water for northern and central Taiwan. Many consider the mountain scenery here to be Taiwan's finest.
The park was established in 1992 and much of it remains inaccessible (in fact, prohibited) to ordinary travellers. The three sections you are permitted to enter are the forest recreation areas of Wuling, Guanwu, and Syuejian near Tai'an Hot Springs. In the case of the first two, multiday trails from the recreation areas lead deep into the rugged interior of the park.
