Zhuilu Old Trail, Hualien

(4.7/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Only the last 3km of this walk is open due to typhoon damage last year. The first km is straight stairs (I'm terrible at stairs and it was hot but I made it in my own time). The next km is 3/4 stairs ...  more »
  • The Zhuilu Old Trail is an awesome hike. Lots of spectacular view of the gorge. If you need help with the permit system, search for Keith Rebec's Zhuilu Old Trail guide on Google.  more »
