Friendly reminder:
Before setting out, be sure to have your vehicle properly maintained and repaired or take advantage of public
transportation. It is also a good idea to tune in to the Police Radio Station (FM 94.5), Taichung Radio (FM
100.7) or Caotun Radio Broadcast (FM 93.7).Due to the changing climates that are typical of mountainous
regions, visitors are advised to check for the latest road status and weather information and plan alternate
routes to avoid traffic congestion during peak hours in order to enjoy a pleasant outing.
