It's not worth waking up at 3am to catch the Alishan train for the sunrise. More breathtaking views from other mountains like Tailuge. Would recommend day trip and stay in the mid level or Jiayi to get better value accommodation instead of the Alishan town.

The old, tall and upright trees make the mountain special. It is not as messy as the rain forest, nor plain as mountains with plain rocks. The plants and the fog together delivered a graceful picture. Easy walking on the board walks / stone stairs....More

Alishan and the surrounding mountains are just amazing nice. You would not expect this nature and beauty on a Pacific island. It looks a bit like the Alps (for sure smaller) but wonderful for hiking or wandering around.

Yes. Off peak easy. Only the early morning train to view the sunrise there's a bit of a crowd for the 2 timings which is around 4-5am.
