The hot weather was getting to me in Taipei, so I planned a 3 days short trip with 3 friends to the Ali mountain. We took high speed rail to Chiayi, than was met by our hired driver/guide to start our venture. She was very nice and knowledgeable. She took us to visit various sightseeing places and introduced some really great food on our way to the Ali mountain. We stayed in the 4 person wood cabin in the Alishan Youth Activity Center. To our surprise, it was very new, clean, spacious and had everything we needed, included Wifi. Not far from the cabin we were able to take some beautiful pictures. We went on some trail walking to breath in some clean air. The diner was a set menu, had 8 dishes and 1 soup. We ate so much food that requires us to walk some more to observed the beautiful sky with many stars. You can also rent the Karaoke room to have a fun night.

Room Tip: For people who does not want wake up early to see the famous sunrises, better to choose cabin, which is away from the main building.

This place is very old style and has not been renovated for a long time. Rooms are nice but quite small. The bathrooms are nice and new. Everything in this buidling looks a bit old. The food at dinner was good but breakfast was only so-so (Chinese style). The best thing about this is probably the location, quiet in a forest. Since the price is not really cheaper compared to other accomodation, I would not recommend staying here.

Not too bad but this place is at 2000m above sea level and management refuses to turn the heat on! Currently winter here and 7 degrees outside! Give it a miss unless you're a polar bear! Food is ok but nothing to write home about. Summer mightn't be too bad if they turn the AC on.

Room Tip: One in a hotel that is heated during winter!

I went to Alishan for a typical 2 day 1 night tripm with one of my friend. i took a High Speed Rail (HSR) from Taipei which cost around NT2000+ round trip. i reached ChiaYi station at 10.30 after taking a 1 and a half hour ride from Taipei. The shuttle bus from the HSR to Alishan cost NT250 and takes 2.5 hours. it only serves 2 trips per day at 10.30 and 11.40. we took the 11.40 bus up. the bus is small and only serves sitting passengers. i suggest that you call in to reserve the bus. if you are unsure you can always ask the passenger service counter there who is very friendly. there is a 7-11 up there to buy stuff, and we stayed at the post office lodging which is very close to the main town and has a nice view of the area and near the railway station. the important part is the tour, MR. sunshine, as so he calls himself is stationed in front of the 7-11 at 4-7pm daily for reservation. he drives a bus up the next morning. it cost us NT300 including the NT 100 deposit upfront. it was very worth the money as he would drive up high above the clouds to see the sunrise. we woke up at 3pm and the meeting time is at 4pm. we advise you buy some bread for breakfast and a cuppa hot drink from the vendors at the 7-11. It takes around 4 hours. and we got to witness the sunrise magnificently and also have a chance to visit the local villagers to but some of their products which consists of honey, preserved fruits and crackers. we left the place at around 2 pm after that.
it was an amazing trip and i highly recommend if you are travelling with a group of friends and really want to catch the sunrise! you will not be disappointed!

Though this YH is not located in the heart of Alishan National Park, they do provide pick up and drop off from and to tourist information center for free (or you still can have a breezy walk for about 30min one way), just give them a call, and they definately will be there on time.

There are lot more to experience when you are there, see below for more info:
