Dasyueshan (Chinese: 大雪山; Hanyu Pinyin: Dàxuě Shān; Tongyong Pinyin: Dàsyuě Shan; Wade–Giles: Da4-hsueh3 Shan1; literally: "big snow mountain")[2] is a mountain in Taiwan along the Xueshan Range with an elevation of 3,530 m (11,580 ft).[1]

The Dasyueshan National Forest Recreation Area in Heping District, Taichung, contains a section of Dasyueshan, consisting of several shorter peaks, with Siaosyueshan (Little Snow Mountain) being the tallest at 2997m. Formerly a logging area, many of the affected areas have been reforested and it has become a popular scenic destination and birdwatching spot. Bird species seen here include the Mikado pheasant, Swinhoe's pheasant, and Taiwan partridge.
