Try to plan your itinerary to cover the places you intend to visit with overnight stay along the route instead of travelling from one place to another faraway place in a day.

You can board Nantou bus to Cingjing for a night's stay and continue on OK bus (reservation required) at 0900 hrs the next day to Hualien. Arrive Hualien city around 1730 hrs.

If you do not intend to stay overnight in Cingjing, you can go to Fengyuan city for Fengyuan bus to Dayuling to transfer to Hualien bus to Taroko before terminating in Hualien.

First Leg: Fengyuan bus from Fengyuan city to Dayuling

Fengyuan bus departs Fengyuan Railway Station daily (one bus trip per day) at 0910 hrs via Dongshih, Puli, Wu-she, Tsuei-fong, Dayuling and terminates in Lishan. Disembark at Dayuling to transfer to Hualien bus bound for Hualien city. Travel time: About 4 hrs (Fengyuan city to Dayuling) Expected arrival time: 1310 hrs.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Second Leg: Hualien bus from Dayuling to Hualien city

Hualien bus #1141 departs Lishan daily (one bus trip per day) at 1500 hrs via Dayuling, Tienhsiang, Taroko Gorge and terminates in Hualien city. Travel time: About 4 hrs (Dayuling to Hualien city). Catch the Hualien bus arriving Dayuling around 1600 hrs. Bus en route Taroko Gorge for Hualien city. The timetable might change from time to time. Check buses schedule before taking buses.
