“A mini taroko gorge”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

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 days.

“Nice View and fun to go into the water”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

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 for the fishes, my child love it as they will swim by your feet.

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

“A great history lesson”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

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 told us of how these original inhabitants lived, the meaning of the tattoos on their faces and introduced us to their foods. We also went down to the river where my children tried to catch fish and tadpoles.

“Need permit but worth the trouble”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

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.
