Yushan and the surrounding mountains belong to the Yushan Range, which is part of Yushan National Park in Taiwan. Yushan National Park, which contains the largest tract of wilderness remaining in Taiwan, is the country’s largest, highest and least accessible national park.The park is also valued for its pristine forests and diversity of fauna, including many endemic species. Yushan is 3,952 metres (12,966 ft) above sea level, being the highest point of the Yushan range. Yushan was once in the ocean and raised to its current height because the Eurasian Plate slid under the neighboring Philippine Sea Plate.
