High in the mountains above Taroko Gorge National Park near Hualien, Taiwan lies a trail unlike any most people ever see or experience in their lives. Carved into the flat face of a massive cliff of solid marble, the Zhuilu Old Trail sits perilously more than 700 meters above the canyon floor below.

With limited (often no) guardrail or fencing along the trails edge, one can stare down past their toes at the great Liwu river winding like a little creek over half a mile down. As if that wasn’t enough, the 500-meter-long cliff side portion at the top is only 90cm wide!

History of the Zhuilu Old Trail

Once part of the old Cross – Hehuan Mountain Road during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, the infamous Zhuilu Old Trail was originally built as a hunting path through the mountains by Truku tribes people in the 1800’s.

It wasn’t widened to its current 90cm width until the occupying Japanese in the early 1900’s needed a route to move heavy artillery through the treacherous mountains.

Scattered along the first legs of the trail winding up to the cliff, remains can still be seen of several tribal sites and outposts of the Japanese presence.

Due to its high historical and cultural value, the trail has been designated as a “Historic Preservation Area” in Taiwan”.

In 2008 after much maintenance of the trail, it was reopened to the public.

Experience the largest naturally enclosed spaces in the world, Taroko National Park, with amazing cliffs and landscapes. Also visit the Lushui Trail and the Eternal Spring Shrine to learn more about Taiwan. Don't miss the delicious lunch in the style of Taiwanese aboriginal at a famous local restaurant!

When your cruise arrives at Hualien Port, you will be picked up at 8:00 am and transferred to the famous Taroko National Park, one of the most popular national parks in Taiwan.

Taroko means "magnificent and beautiful" in Truku language, an indigenous tribal language in Taiwan. Taroko Gorge is one of the largest naturally enclosed spaces in the world, spanning 2,300 feet long, 1,300 feet wide, and at least 230 feet high. Taroko Gorge and its surrounding area are well known for their abundant supply of marble. There are at least twenty scenic spots in the National park, and the first stop will be at the Shakadang Trail. It is originally known as "Mysterious Valley Trail" and was renamed to "Shakadang Trail" in 2001. This trail is built along the river cliff, and you can easily observe both the rock folds and plant ecosystem in the river valley. After the first curve, there is a deep pool with clear water that has enchanted many visitors.

For lunch, enjoy the unique cuisine in the style of Taiwanese aboriginal at the famous restaurant named Bruwan. Afterward, you will head to the Lushui Trail. It was part of the Old Cross-Hehuan Mountain Road with decent road condition, beautiful landscape and significant ecological value. It is a popular sightseeing path suitable for all ages. Dense forest, cliff terrain, plants growing on the rock and historical monuments are the characteristics of the Lushui Trail. Among all plants, the Taroko oak is a rare species in Taiwan. Standing on the cliff, enjoy the mesmerizing view of overlooking the Liwu River Valley and the Lushui Terrace.

Finally, driving from the west exit of the Changchun Tunnel of the Central Cross-Island Highway, then turn south and go along the old Central Cross-Island Highway to the area next to Liwu River. See the Eternal Spring Shrine, pronounced as Changchun in Mandarine, which commemorates the 226 personnel, mostly military veterans, who scarified themselves during the construction of the Central Cross-Island Highway (1956~1960). Spring water adjacent by the Eternal Spring Shrine flows year round and the Highway Bureau named it after "Changchun Falls". It is now a scenic spot with special significance on the Central Cross-Island Highway. At the end of the tour, please feel relaxed and laid back while being transferred back to the port for your onward journey.
