This walk is barely a kilometer long yet it is one of the more popular routes in Taroko. Trailing from the Swallow’s Grotto to Jinheng Bridge, the path is favoured by those who want to be able to say that they hiked, but don’t want hiking to become an intense activity. You will pass two long and dangerous looking suspension bridges on your hike. You’ll also pass through several tunnels that squeeze through the narrowest part of the gorge. In the walls, you’ll see the potholes carved into the rock by the river, and the swallows that nest there.
