Taipei, Jan. 10 (CNA) The Yushan National Park Headquarters launched snow season controls Wednesday after the snowline on Yushan, Taiwan's highest mountain, dropped to White Forest at an altitude of 3,000 meters.
Snow stopped falling at 12:25 p.m. that day at the North Peak weather monitoring station on Yushan, according to Central Weather Bureau data.
At one point 4.2 centimeters of snow had accumulated on the mountain before strong winds swept some of it away.
However, Paiyun Lodge, situated on Yushan at an elevation of 3,402 meters, received 5 cm of snow, while the Tataka area at an altitude of 2,600 meters experienced brief snow mixed with hail at around noon.
The controls mean that hikers on Yushan are required to have experience in winter conditions and to be equipped with proper gear, including ice axes, helmets and ropes.
Checks will be reinforced at the Tataka Visitor Center and at Paiyun Lodge, the national park headquarters said.
