Su-Hua Highway, Hualien
Categories: Scenic Drives, Outdoor Activities, Tourist Spots
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.

昨日も雨が降り一部区間は土砂崩れで対面通行の場所があるとの情報だったけどそのような場所は無かった。しかし何箇所も大小の石が落ちておりなかなかスリルがあった。運転してると景色たのしむ余裕はないけど、途中何箇所か車を停めて景色を見るポイントがある。Was it rained yesterday and some sectors are two-way streets where by a landslide, but did not place. But also places large and small stones has fallen, it was a thrill. Is a point of view but cannot afford driving and enjoy the scenery along the way or at parked.show original
It is on the way to go in and out of Hualien. As mentioned, it is nice to stop by wherever you like along the road.
