Hi Calkel, thanks for your concerns but my friend has this madness about fireworks and insist to go for the Feng pao. Guessed we will have to prep ourself well n cover up 101%. Would you know if they sell the jacket, helmet, towel, tape etc there?

For Pingxi lantern, is there a queue or holding area we have to stay throughout till the event starts? Or we could secure a slot already then move around the places? eg. Shi fen, jiu fen etc.

pingxi lantern i went once before that time morning very early went to queue to get the tickets already.

then went other place walk walk and at near event timing go to the event place and they will arrange according to ur release number

The time to go from taichung to hehuanshan takes slightly more than 3hrs.
From ground level to 3000m in altitude, better play safe.
Altitude sickness.
We did hike one peak on actual day or ascending.
Day 1: 合歡山東峰 from 4-6pm。
Day 2: 合歡尖山 after sunrise, follow by breakfast at 松雪樓。

All self drive, self tour.

thanks for the recommendation. this guy here actl provided a pretty good explanation via public transport from taipei wow:

Sunrise at different time of the year.
There is no one fix time.
There is a sunrise platform there. So we just wake up, and walk out to the platform from 滑雪山莊 or 松雪樓。
Easily done.
