Zhuilu Old Trail, Hualien

(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
A trip to Zhuilu Old Trail allows you to explore wild, mountainous nature far away from the beaten path. First, you’ll need to get a permit from the local authorities, which is best done a couple of days in advance. Also, consider rescheduling your visit during bad weather, as the terrain can get slippery and potentially dangerous. Otherwise, take a tour guide and go hiking along the old trail across the undulating terrain. It can get challenging, but the amazing views of the surrounding nature and Taroko Gorge more than make up for the trouble. Be careful, bring a lot of water, and enjoy the unforgettable feeling when you conquer the trail. To visit Zhuilu Old Trail and get the most from your holiday in Hualien, create itinerary details personal to you using our Hualien vacation builder.

  • 上次拜訪錐麓是2012, 相隔四年, 上星期再次前往, 路況好超級多. 感謝太魯國國家公園管理處的用心維護, 嚴格管控人數, 辦理入園與入山證, 走起來是悠閒與相對安全的!! 避免在斷崖上嬉戲, 抱持著謹慎的態度, 其實不是一個很難的步道.... 主要是克服恐懼感即可. 太魯閣無敵美景, 難忘的回憶. 
  • The main reason why I visited the National Park was this. The trail was 6.2km in total and I was very much impressed by how well maintained the trail was. Bravo to the park's management team for that!...  more »
