Zhuilu Old Trail Hike from Hualien City: Full-Day Taroko Gorge Hike
From US$110.00
Hike the Zhuilu Old Trail through Taroko National Park on a full-day hiking tour from Hualien. Since this guided hiking tour secures your Zhuilu Old Trail hiking permit in advance, you can forget about logistics and focus on the soaring cliffs, marble walls, and lush vegetation that you’ll discover on this spectacular, 3.9-mile (6.3-kilometer) hike.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at Hualien City and then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the scenic trip to Taroko National Park, stopping at a convenience store to pick up snacks, water, or lunch along the way.
At the starting point, cross a dramatic suspension bridge to access the Zhuilu Old Trail, entering a section of Taroko National Park that’s only accessible with a permit. The first stretch of trail, with steep stairs, is the most challenging, and you can watch for birds, monkeys, and mountain goats at the edge of the trail.
After roughly two hours of walking, you’ll reach the towering Zhuilu Cliffs and admire panoramic views across Taroko Gorge. Pause to enjoy snacks or lunch at the Cliff Outpost and then follow the Zhuilu Old Trail back to the starting point, finishing by crossing the suspension bridge once more. This hiking tour concludes with return transfer to Hualien City.
