After receiving your Park Entry Permit, you may need to apply for a Mountain Entry Permit. Please see "Do I need a permit for my trail itinerary?" for specific information on which trails need which permits.

You can apply for the Mountain Entry Permit in three ways:

  1. If you have already received your Park Entry Permit, you can automatically transfer your details from the Park Permit application to the Police Mountain Permit application. This is the most common method. To do this, please go on our website to: Online Application > Check Status/Print Permit/Apply for Mountain Permit > [Enter in your details] > Apply Mountain (Police) Permit. This option should be the second of four, on the bottom of the main column. The processing time for the application should be a few working days. This options is only available 5-30 working days before the starting date of your hike.
  2. You can obtain a Mountain Entry Permit in-person by visiting a police station nearby the trail entrance. This can be done any day up to the day of the hike, and should take 10-20 minutes. Note that most police stations are not open 24 hours, so it is best to check their opening hours before arriving. Please visit our website for a list of which police stations can process which trails: https://www.taroko.gov.tw/en/Announcements/MountainPermits
  3. You can apply for the Police Mountain Permit online by yourself. The application can only be completed in Chinese, and the processing time for the application should be a few working days. This option is only available 5-30 days before the starting date of your hike. Registration for the Mountain Entry Permit is done online through this link: https://nv2.npa.gov.tw/NM103-604Client/
