Jialishan Range (Chinese: 加里山山脈) is a mountain range in northern Taiwan. It is also regarded as the northern part of "Western Thrust Fault Mountains" (西部衝上斷層山地) by Tomita Yoshirou and Lin Chaoqi.

Although it is named as "Range", some scholars think it only is a piedmont belt. It does not find a mention in the geography textbooks of elementary schools and high schools. The reason is Jialishan Range was cut by several rivers.

The tallest peak of Jialishan Range is Mount Le (樂山), which has a height of 2,618 m.
