Depend on when you go. I went in early march, just heattech inner and a simple windbreaker or jacket is not enough. it's 5 degree at alishan waiting for sunrise, worst cant see sunrise that day due to heavy fogging.
It was about that temperature atop Alishan when I went too. i definitely didn't wear any thick jacket. Guess maybe I just got used to it. Was walking around quite a bit, so I guess that helped keep warm.

it's not about how thick the jacket but how efficient is the material in trapping your body heat …

Good Question.
Alishan viewpoint is very open, winds from all direction.
Hehuanshan viewpoint is not open 360 deg. Still has the back mountain which blocks out some wind.
But usually it will snow from hehuanshan area, seldom for Alishan. Seldom is like 5-10 years if lucky.

That is why they use 實際溫度 vs 體感溫度

thanks for the science lesson

It's not about how efficient a material is at trapping heat, but rather how inefficient it is at conducting heat away.

Ask the Taiwan guru here. If I have a departure Taipei taoyuan airport back to changi at 8am, and I stay at xmd. Am I right to say the only option I have is to take a cab already? Since check-in with baggage aga also need two hours in advance...
