Rihang, though not a man of many words in English (though his amazing translating phone helps), is an absolute legend in terms of tailor-making your trip. We stayed at Taroko lodge for 4 nights and he really made our stay. He and his wife cook a delicious breakfast each morning, before he or his son take you to 7-Eleven to... More

Thank you to Rihang and family for a wonderful stay. Taroko Lodge - set in a typical Taiwanese village - is a clean, homely and convenient base for exploring all that the Taroko national park has to offer. It is 5mins drive from the Xincheng station and the base of the national park. The lodge offers bike rentals and provides... More

I had a really good stay at the lodge. Mr. Rihang is a very helpful and friendly person. He picked me up and dropped me to the train station. He also arranged vegetarian food for me during the stay. The location of the lodge is also really good, as its right outside the park. The best part about the stay... More

Taroko Lodge is my favorite place to stay in Taiwan. The owner, Rihang, was so extremely helpful in not just enabling our Taroko adventure, but in excellent advice about everything we would enjoy on the island. Rihang knew what we were looking for and made many suggestions that all turned out to be awesome. He has an excellent assortment of... More

Taroko Lodge came highly recommended by Lonely Planet and also Tripadvisor! After stayed there for 3 nights 4 days in Dec 2014, I totally agreed with all that plus more. Rihang Su knows Taroko National Park well, and he helped me to plan my adventures, from cycling, short hike, to some difficult but extremely rewarding hike as well. The lodge... More

Rihang is an extremely helpful and accommodating man. He helped me arrange hiking passes (well worth it), picked me up and dropped me off places, and gave me advice on what further hikes to do after I had explored the well-known spots - his local knowledge is great. I can recommend the bike hire and ride down the gorge, if... More

My husband and I spent 3 days in Taroko lodge. Rihang and his family are extremely nice and they offer a great service. The lodge is very nice, wtih big rooms and the breakfast is freshly made by Rihang´s wife :) A perfect base if you want to visit Taroko national park.

Taroko Lodge is a homestay in a quiet but hard-to-find location near Xincheng, the closest rail station to Taroko Gorge. It is 5km from the national park visitor centre, and about 15km from the most visited part of the gorge. The rooms are large and comfortable, though the amenities are showing their age. The helpful owner can meet guests at... More

If you are going to Taroko this is the place to stay. Rihang and his lovely family pick you up from the station on arrival, arrange permits for hikes and drive you anywhere and everywhere you want to go, including some secret sights of Taroko that tour buses don't go to. You can hire bikes from the lodge and will... More

We stayed at this place on our trip to Taiwan after taking a train down from Taipei. We wanted to cycle the Taroko Gorge and it was perfect for this. Rihang was fantastic as was his son. They took us for a cheap meal in town first night, drove us to the top and let us drive down next, then... More
