Every year between May and October, waves of purple crow and blue tiger butterflies fly over the Tataka Saddle on Yushan (Jade Mountain). The Yushan National Park Administration Office asks the public to avoid disturbing the ecological environment and to pay attention to weather and road conditions in mountainous areas.

According to the office, surveys have detected 282 species of butterfly belonging to 11 different families within the Tataka Saddle, Meishan and Nanan areas of the park, demonstrating that Yushan’s ecology provides a rich breeding ground for butterflies. The Tataka Saddle is an area through which many milkweed butterflies and birds must pass and one can often see six species of blue tiger butterfly and four species of purple crow butterfly flying over the area from Shueili Township and Dongpu Village in Sinyi Township toward the Nanzihsian River.
