Liumchen Mountain From the Northwest - July
A subalpine summit located near the American border, south of Chilliwack and east of Cultus Lake at the head of Liumchen Creek on the Tamihi divide. Liumchen is located within a little known provincial Ecological reserve which also has some rare (for the region) mid-elevation old growth trees as well as alpine meadows and a lake which is a popular hiking destination.

Liumchen is reached from rough, old logging roads (need good 4WD or long hike) in Little Tamihi Creek followed by a ridge hike through forest. There are good views of Baker and Tamihi in conditions of decent visibility.
