阿冷山 Ah Leng Shan 1540 metres high is located in 裡冷部落 Li Leng Village. Before we decided to drive to the trail head and BOV overnight beside the river, we drove around Li Leng Village admiring the orange plantation and Sakura flowers

The following morning we attempted to summit and at the start of the trail head we could not find the way up. Took us half hour searching around the river bank until we found it.

We had underestimated this climb, expected to reach the summit in 4 hours so we set off around 11am and should reach the summit by 3pm. The whole climb was very steep and there were couple of sections where the ropes were left there assisted us. Our legs took heavy beating and almost exhausted our water supply. By 3:20pm we only manage to reach 1370 metres, 4 hours climbed and we only managed a distance around 1.5Km. Had to abandon the climb and headed back down before darkness hits us.

Overall it was a good work out, came back down and had our leg a cold soak. In the evening we headed off to another camp ground with hot spring.

If planning for this climb, bring plenty of water and trail food. Forget about making hot food, it will just weigh you down. Start early, we had 170 meters more to go before reaching the summit, maybe another hour climb.
