the walk down and up the many steps named Swallow trail is much sheltered by trees and not much views, good exercise in the forest though.

This place is mostly same like taroko gorge, but small in size. Unlike taroko gorge, here anyone can go down and touch the clear water. Mostly would look alike a small replica of taroko gorge. Only 600 peoples are permitted to visit this place in a day. So make sure you have reserved your visit earlier, especially in the weekend... More

You will need a permit to enter as they limit the number of visitors. You will definitely need a guide, we hired a cab driver for the day. Without a guide, i think you will miss a lot of spots and may get lost. The view is nice. We went to play in the stream and it's cold. Bring food... More

This place is also called 慕谷慕魚 (Muku Mugi) near Taroko Gorge. they only let 300 ppl in per day / night so that they could preserve it. felt so lucky to be one of the few that were able to enjoy a nice swim in this crystal clear amazingness

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children below ten booked a cab to drive us into the Valley. It cost us NTD 3500 for a whole day tour, but it was worth it. The driver did all the paper work getting the permit into the valley and told us the history of the original inhabitants of the valley. He... More

Yes, you will need a permit to get here and yes there's a limit on the number of visitors (600) per day. However, if you apply the permit before hand (online), you can get in regardless of whether the daily limit has been reached.

If you want some adventure, go to this valley. Only 600 tourists a day are allowed. Go to the police station to register and give your form at the gate (no fee?!). The road is small and lonely planet has good directions (don't go over the red bridge - good picture point -, but continue on the left bank of... More
