Mugua River Gorge
Waterfalls & Swimming Holes Adventure
Get Ready For an Epic Day on our Incredible Mugua River Gorge Tour!
Prepare yourself for Taiwan’s spectacular Mugua River Gorge! We’ll spend the day swimming in a number of the most pristine blue rivers and waterfalls you’ve ever seen and hiking through the verdant jungle. As you may have heard, famed local tourist spot Mugumuyu (aka Mugumuki) has been closed for a few years now… but fear not! In the same valley we’ve tracked down several amazing rivers of equal azure blue water. This is a truly wonderful way to experience the forests, waters and culture that make this part of Taiwan so special.
