Yu Mountain (Yushan) is the centerpiece of the Yu Mountain (Yushan) National Park, which covers a total of 105,490 hectares including large sections of the Central Mountain Range. The park encompasses a variety of habitats ranging from broadleaf forest at lower altitudes to mixed forest, coniferous forest, bamboo, and finally, at the highest elevations, waist-high arrow bamboo, clumps of conifers, and bare rocky outcrops. Flowers include azaleas, which abound in spring, and a wide variety of colorful alpine blossoms. The park is home to a large variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and butterflies. In the past, many of these species became endangered due to over-hunting; but with the establishment of the Yu Mountain (Yushan) National Park, they are gradually making a comeback. Larger mammals such as the black bear, sambar deer, Taiwan macaque, and serows (a type of goat antelope) can sometimes be seen, and their call is often heard.
