The mountain that blocks out the disaster is known as central mountain region/area, known commonly to Taiwanese as 中央山脈.
It does block out most typhoon like an axe.
At times typhoons will jump over it.
It is a beautiful stretch.
Ask me or fw79, we sure love Taiwan mountain views.
Give me this or Alishan, i will say i will be glad we had this during our October trip.
Sea of clouds so easy to get, unlike Alishan.
But beware of altitude sickness and do not push yourself too hard.
There is always another time for it if you feel not ready for it.
