It takes four to six hours to complete this 6.5km hiking route. Beginning at Swallow’s Grotto, it’s one of the most grueling and most beautiful walks in the country. However, it’s not technically challenging. And the hard work pays off! It has incredible vistas of the Taroko Gorge and the Liwu River. The trails takes you past Jhuilu Cliff, the bridge over Liwu River, and past remnants of old civilization. The 500-meter stretch across the Zhuilu Cliff is one of the most adrenaline pumping experiences Taiwan has to offer. Most of the trail has barely enough room to for two people to stand abreast, so be careful.
