The hike via Zhuilu Old Trail (錐麓古道) is a bit of a vertical workout, but your effort will be rewarded tenfold as this trail offers the most breathtaking bird's-eye views in the whole of Taroko Gorge. Originally, this trail was part of a longer cross-island mountain pass built by indigenous groups in the area. In fact, you can still find remnants of their settlements and market outposts along the path. Be amazed by the 500-meter long Zhuilu Cliff that is one of the greatest adrenaline rushes you will ever experience. To top it all off, you may just be lucky enough to spot some monkeys spying on you from the surrounding jungle. This hiking trip includes Taroko National Park entrance fee and return transfer from Hualien.
