Our driver organized the permits and drove us to this little valley, it was a really hot day but I'm glad we didn't get the driver to go all the way to the end and walked at our own pace instead. Even though I have seen many photos before, it was much better to experience the surroundings. The rough tunnels... More

Was here in early May 2014 trying out river tracing with Eye Travel Taiwan (Pte Tour, Hualien) for the first time. It was lovely to swim in the river with all the necessary safety equipment - river tracing shows, life jacket, helmet, wetsuit. A permit is required so pls do not try this on your own without a guide. We... More

This was our last place to go before heading back to Taipei. The weather was extremely hot so we didnt really look forward to anything until our driver introduced this place to us. We were so excited and the place is so beautiful! Our driver took us right till the end so that we can have a nice walk. It... More

It's not as exclusive or protected as it is made to be. Cars are still allowed in. The daily restriction does help ensure that big tourist buses are kept out and not congest the reserve. Really loved dipping our feet in the crystal clear water. We visited in November so it was really too cold to swim! Worth a visit... More

I thought the place is a secret paradise, but it is already voted as #8 attraction at the point of time I am writing this. Thank god the area is protected and hence can be prevented from being too touristy and dirty and then losing it's charm.... I've been to Hualien twice already and I really love this place. I... More

This place is a secret paradise, still unspoilt as there are restrictions on the number of permits issued each day, as well as being offbounds to large tour buses. Yes, it was a little troublesome to get there... a) You need a permit (apply online within 7-30 days of your trip, else be prepared to queue from 6am) (http://eli.npa.gov.tw/E7WebO/index02.jsp) b)...

You need to register with the local police to get into this place. We did ours online 2 weeks in advance so there was no need to queue. It took a bit of determination to complete the registration. As there is no public buses running into the area, we hired a taxi for NT2500 for a full day. The driver... More

Need to hire a car to get here. It is a reserve for the indigenous people which means they only allow 200 people in each day. Get there early to register for a free permit. Once we were in it, the drive through the very narrow road and tunnels was quite an adventure, cos they were not so well maintained,... More

Ask yourself what you want to go for. If you're more about the destination than the trip, this valley isn't for you. But if you enjoy walking through nature to take in the beauty around you, then don't miss it. The picture of the sign I took on the way in is about the 300 people per day limit. In... More
