The Stunning Mugua River Gorge
A River Valley Unlike Any Other
Welcome to the Mugua River Gorge
Literally meaning “papaya” in Mandarin, the sweetness of the Mugua area is hard to miss. A region in Taiwan blessed with beautiful, crystal clear river waters, waterfalls, lush forests and unique aboriginal culture, it is a terrific way to spend a day while in the Hualien area. Listed as one of the East Coast “highlights” in the Lonely Planet Taiwan Guide Book, this area has earned a reputation that is well deserved. Within the Mugua River Gorge itself and in the surrounding area, there are a huge number of wild and wonderful places to explore, including Emerald Valley, Tongmen, Liyu Lake, Wunlan, Zimu Falls, the Miyawan River, Rainbow Falls and more!
So put on some comfortable clothes and your walking shoes, bring along your swimsuit and a towel, and let’s go on a journey together to explore the wondrous destinations in and around the Mugua River Gorge!
