Winding up through the forest and high into the mountains above Taroko Gorge National Park, the incredible Zhuilu Old Trail takes you to near dizzying heights. At the top, the gravity defying path continues for 500 precarious meters cut right into the cliffs face. 700 meters above the Liwu River and the canyon floor!
This is truly something to experience, and one of the most adventurous places imaginable. When booking with Island Life, we’ll take care of all the required park trail permits, police permits and transportation so you can avoid a good deal of hassle. Our small groups are never larger than 8 people.
Permits and Park Fees Included!
- Begin your hike crossing the massive Zhuilu Suspension Bridge over the incredible Swallow Grotto slot canyon
- Wind your way up through the forest, keeping your eye out for monkeys!
- Walk on the 90cm wide Zhuilu Cliff, 700 meters above the canyon floor
