Su-Hua Highway, Hualien

Scenic Drive
Following a contour carved by the dramatic cliffs rising up from the Pacific Ocean, Su-Hua Highway provides travelers with a scenic and exciting drive. Making up a 118 km (73.3 mi) section of the Provincial Highway No. 9, which runs north to south down the east of the country, the highway incorporates a 21 km (13 mi) stretch of cliffs called the Chingshui Cliffs, which rise an average of 800 m (2,624.6 ft) above sea level. The route began life as a military footpath used initially by the Chinese in an effort to assert sovereignty over the east coast. It was subsequently widened into a road by the Japanese colonial government, with extensive works done and tunnels and bridges constructed, until it was opened to the public in 1932. Be aware that with falling rocks considered a constant threat, the road is regarded as one of the most dangerous in the world, so take it slowly, and consider abstaining during bad weather.

  • 蘇花公路這個名字, 真是從新聞裡認識的, 幾年前旅遊巴被山泥沖落大海, 全車失蹤, 這件事令我對蘇花公路心存餘悸, 但當駕車走進公路, 沿途風景優美, 事實上是美景一幅一幅在公路旁出現, 令人看得如癡如醉。  more »
  • 台灣早期最驚險壯觀的景觀公路,倚太平洋濱沿山脈拓寬,眺望太平洋,另從海上回觀,景色也是一級棒,唯須注意沿途有落石  more »
  • 沿途有許多美景如清水斷崖,蘇澳的神祕沙灘,都是很壯麗的景點,甚至可以參加獨木舟行程,體驗從海上看清水斷崖的美景。  more »
