Ok rooms, but with a owner who is really friendly and takes you out to night markets and restaurants. He gives you the best bike/hike in the Taroko. He lets you off att the top and then you can glide down and stop and go for hikes. This was the most beautiful experience we had in Taiwan:)

We stayed here in our tents for 500 taiwan dollars a night each. We were allowed use of wifi, showers, toilets and power to charge up our electricals and this included breakfast. We also had him take us to the top of the gorge and cycle down. We left at 7.40am to do this to beat the crowds and the... More

All the positive reviews here are a testament to Rihang's hospitality and concern for his guests, however, after a recent stay here, I found the accommodations poor value for the price, though my perspective regarding value may differ from others since my travels have largely been in Asia (big cities, countryside, and everything in between). The rooms are all rather... More

If you want to stay within the beautiful Taroko Gorge National Park, Taroko Lodge is the best place to stay. We stayed there for 3 nights from the beginning and skipped Hualien entirely. We met many other guests who stayed at Hualien first and they commented that they wasted their time in Hualien. Having said that, early booking is necessary... More

we've a nice stay at this good place, Rihang is very accomodating and helpful, and can manage some English, and an expert in helping with places to visit nearby. Excellent if you're on a biking trip as he can take you to the best spots to start you day's visit. Place is located near entrance to Taroko National Park

My boyfriend and I stayed at Rihang's lodge for 3 nights. We were picked up at the Xincheng Train Station, even after I changed the time an hour prior due to a mistake of my own. Our first day, we opted to take a ride to the top of the gorge in the van and ride bicycles down, which was... More

To start off, I'm a review free-loader; I read them for movies, restaurants, especially hotels, but have never once felt the obligation to write one. Now, I feel obligated... Taroko gorge is an incredible piece of nature, and I can't imagine a more authentic way to experience it than to stay at Taroko Lodge. Just a 2min drive/bikeride from Xincheng... More

I really don't know where to start in saying how grateful we are to have stayed here, from the very first moment we called the owner last minute to let him know we would like to stay with him we were treated like part of the family.

We had booked Taroko Lodge mostly because of it's convenient location close to the beautiful Taroko Gorge. In the end, we got a lot more than we expected. We arrived in pouring rain (caused by a passing taifoon) when it was already dark and Rihang immediately collected orders for dinner to fetch it for everybody which was a great relief... More

If you want to enjoy the Taroko, I suggest staying at Taroko Lodge and asking them to set up the bike/hike activities for you. Some can be challenging for the casual adventurer, but I think the feeling of accomplishment and the opportunity to see some wonderful views (missed by the average tourist) is very much worth it. The place is... More
