The Zhuilu Old Trail follows the last remaining section of the Old Hehuan Mountain Road in Hualien County, Taiwan. Also known as the Vertical Trail, it’s a nail-­biting yet rewarding hike, offering spectacular aerial views of the Taroko Gorge and the Liwu River that created it.

The trek begins at Zimu Bridge and follows the north wall of the gorge before recrossing at Swallow Grotto. The route is a little more than 10 kilometers in total and takes between six and eight hours to complete, including a section that is literally cut out from the cliff face hundreds of meters up and no more than 60­70 centimeters wide.

The Taroko National Park restricts the number of trekkers walking the Zhuilu Old Trail to 60 people on weekdays and 96 at the weekends. A permit is required, as is an official guide to lead the way.

8-Hr Zhuilu Old Trail at Taroko National Park (from Hualien)

8-Hr Zhuilu Old Trail at Taroko National Park (from Hualien)

One of the most spectacular of the accessible hiking paths in Taiwan, the 10.3km Zhuilu Old Trail (3.1km is allowed now) follows the last long remaining section of the Old Hehuan Mountain Rd. Justifiably famous in hiking circles, the trail gets its name from the section of the 1100m-high Zhuilu Cliff it traverses about 500m above the Liwu River. At its narrowest and most exposed points, the trail is no more than 60cm to 70cm wide and is literally cut into the cliff face. The bird's-eye view of the gorge is spellbinding, and there are numerous now classic spots for taking photos showing you in the seemingly most precarious of positions. The trail begins at Swallow Grotto trail ㄧZhuilu Suspension Bridge→Badagan Outpost→Cliff Outpost→Badagan Outpost→Zhuilu Suspension Bridge.
