After spending two days in Cing Jing, the next leg of our Taiwan free and easy Summer adventure was to the easten part of Taiwan to Hua Lian 花莲, where we did a road trip to Taroko Gorge 太鲁阁. Taroko Gorge is Hua Lian’s main attraction and according to friends who have been there, they were all captivated and left spell bound by the spectacular scenery.
Bidding good bye to the picturesque view in Cing Jing
Being city folks, I was looking forward to this part of our trip as we’ll have plenty of opportunities to get close to nature and we spent two days in Hua Lian. On the first day, we got up bright and early and had our breakfast at our minsu before heading off at 9am, where we were picked up by our friendly cab driver, Mr Zhen. He is the husband of 古小姐, whom we booked for this roadtrip and understand that this is their family business where husband, wife and son, ferry customers between Cing Jing and Hua Lian and vice versa. Taroko National Park is famous for its marble gorge. You can find out more information on the park from this website.
Before setting off, Mr Zheng warned us that the journey up to He Huan Shan 合歡山 will be steep and winding, so we were advised to arm ourselves with a jacket and let him know if we feel unwell along the way, especially for Sophie.
The stops that we covered in Taroko National Park were -> Wu Ling (武嶺) -> He Huan Shan (合歡山) -> Dayuling (大禹嶺) -> Bi Lu Shen Mu (碧綠神木) -> Intertek (天祥) -> Yue Fei Pavilion (岳飞亭) –> Mother Bridge (慈母橋) -> Swallow trail (燕子口) -> Changchun Temple (長春祠) -> Shakagang Trail (砂卡礑步道) -> Chishingtan Beach (七星潭). The estimated journey was 7 hours
Bright smiles from everyone as we climbed up the mountains to be greeted with this amazing view
Tea plantations and organic farms on the mountains
The drive up He Huan Shan 合歡山 was indeed windy. Thankfully, our cab driver Mr Zhen is a very seasoned driver with his daily commute up and down the mountains and knows the roads like the back of his hand. Sophie was a strong trooper and wasn’t too affected by the altitude although she was quite uncomfortable towards the top.
Our first pit stop, 武嶺
A quick history lesson on the Japanese invasion to Taiwan during the 20th century
We continued to climb higher up the mountains and it got colder and more foggy. In fact, the temperature dropped to 8 degrees when we were at the peak of He Huan Shan.
Messy hair from the strong winds. Don’t forget your jackets!
After a quick toilet break and some photos, we ran back to the cab to seek shelter from the strong winds. Not long after, we stopped for lunch at the Central Cross-Island Highway. I forgot the name of the shop where we ate but they served peach honey coffee! Before you give me that strange look, you got to try it for yourself because it was one of the best coffee I’ve tasted. This was the olny place that we can stop for food, so if you don’t intend to eat here, you better pack some food or snacks for the long journey.
After fueling up, we walked to the grand old looking Bi Lu Shen Mu which is a famous sacred tree. But I’ve forgotten the tale of how it got its name.
After setting off shortly, we got stalled by this sight where the rocks fell onto the road just minutes before we drove by.I was so thankful for God’s protection over us. It’s quite common to see rock slides happening especially since Taiwan experiences strong typhoons and torrent rain.
While waiting for the rocks to be cleared, we got out of the cab for a breather and the air was indeed extra refreshing when you’re high up in the mountains.

Just imagine if we traveled any faster and we may have been hurt by the falling rocks. Onward we go!
One of the many organic farms 有机农场 we saw along the way. Organic farms are gaining popularity in Taiwan with more being concerned about their health and sustainable farming.

The waters that flowed through the gorge was greyish that day unlike the clear blue that I so often see from others photos. Not sure if it had anything to do with the rainy weather that we had that day.
Declaration of love and markings of names formed by white pebbles against the grey sand
Since many of the trails were either closed or too dangerous for a wet day (it rained on and off), our cab driver suggested that we go on a short hike at the Lu Shui Trail. She estimated that it would take us no more than an hour and armed us with insect propellant and a torch light.
Initially I was quite hesitant but since Alexis was so game for it we just went for it. I hope I don’t regret it….
At the entrance of the trail…erm looks like a very adventurous trail alright
We had to watch our steps and duck our heads when we walked near the edge of the overhanging rocks. Thankfully, I’m short and have little navigating through the trail.
Below us was the Lui Shui terrace where it used to be the home of the Taroko settlement and is now a major attraction in the Taroko National Park. We exited the trail after 40 minutes as there was honestly not much to see, so I wouldn’t recommend it at all 😛
We arrived at Yue Fei Pavilion (岳飞亭) that was built in remembrance of the hero, Yue Fei.
At the end of the bridge is a suspension bridge to one of the park’s Ecological Protection Entry but entry is not allowed without a pass.

Major road works due to the falling rocks on one side of the cliff
We finally got to the end of our Hua Lian road trip and one can never claim to have been to the Taroko Gorge if you didn’t take a photo at this rock at it’s entrance/ exit (depending on which way you started your journey from).
We finally arrived at Hua Lian where we were treated to another view- the view of the Pacific Ocean from Chishingtan Beach, 七星潭. The beach is worth a mention as its shores is not your typical sandy shore but a pebbled one.
Sophie got busy filling a paper bag with pebbles and took them back to the minsu as a memento for making it to the end of our day’s road trip. Needless to say, we were exhausted and retreated early for the night before our whale watching adventure the next day.

is it possible to have a day trip from Cingjing to Taroko Gorge? Will it be too tiring for the kids?
Could you please share the contact of the driver and the price for this drive?
Sorry for the late reply. Are you intending to have the day trip in Cing Jing or Taroko Gorge? If you’re going with kids, better t spend a day each at these places.
The cab driver I hired from Cing Jing to Taroko Gorge is 古小姐. You can contact her via whatsapp at 0935-083-682 (+886-935-083-682) or drop her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for such a detailed and well done write up on your trip!
I’m thinking of hiring a car from cingjing to hualien too. But I am traveling with a 20 month old and 4 year old. Would you advise for us to take the same road trip? Or is it too tiring for kids?
Can you share your itinerary with me? I’m going for 8 days and would like to use yours as reference.
Hi Susan, Thanks for sharing your Taiwan trip! I was thinking of engaging 古小姐 based on your recommedation, but then heard from her that she charges additionalfor’overtime’, on per hour basis. May i know whether you encountered this with her too? Read about warnings on this from other travellers, which made me a little concerned.. She also didn’t mention it until I asked specifically – twice – so I’m not sure if it was deliberate hiding or what.. Would appreciate greatly if you could let me know how your experience was, regarding this. Thanks!
No I didn’t encounter any extra charge even though our journey was delayed for an hour or so. But it was due to unforseen circumstances as the roads were closed for a while due to falling rocks. I find that in general, she’d pretty honest and friendly so you may want to ask the feedback of those she charged overtime for-was it to see some attractions that they requested etc? What she quoted us was for whole day and not on an hourly basis. Hope this is useful to you.
Oops, actually I meant that other travellers warned in general to check if there are overtime charges before engaging the drivers, not saying that i have seen pple complain this about her. Sorry if there was any misunderstanding! Yup, thanks for your feedback, at least i know that if delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, she may not charge us for it. =) Thanks again!
I see. She comes highly recommended by friends as well as on trip advisor so shouldn’t be a problem. Happy planning for your holiday 🙂
Nice blog! Can advise on your accommodation in hualien? From Hualien to Taipei, also by cab? Possible for you to share your itinerary with me too? Planning free& easy Taiwan with my 5yr old son, my parents and in-law. Thanks. Tiffany

Hi dear, may i know where do u stay in hualien? How much does the driver cost for one day in hualien based on the places you go above?
I stayed in 浪淘沙看海民宿 in Hua Lian and paid TWD5000 for 2 nights (S$205). Another place that is recommended by my cab driver which is popular with Singaporeans is the 七星潭渡假飯店. The cab driver that I hired was Mrs Gu who charged us TWD5000 for the journey between Cing Jing to Hua Lien and to the places that you read above. If you’re interested to book her, you can drop her an email at email@example.com. A lot of people on Trip Advisor recommended her and her hubby too.
Hi Susan, your blog is really useful for my taiwan trip planning! May I ask how much did you book the driver and for how long? That’ll be really helpful, thank you!!
I booked the driver for a day from Cing Jing to Hua Lien and paid 5,000TWD. We set off at 9am and got to Hua Lien around 6:00pm.
I am planning for an upcoming family trip and I am so glad I chanced upon your website!

Hi, I am planning a trip to Taiwan in October. Would you mind sending me a copy of your itinerary ? Thank you 🙂
I’ve sent the itinerary to you. Do check your email 🙂
Hi Susan, I am so lucky to chance upon your blog post. I am going Taiwan soon and might be following the route you are taking (cingjing to hualien). Please advice me if you manage to explore the whole of taroko park on that day? i am worried that i might be too greedy to plan hualien and cingjing for duration of less than 4 days. It will be great if you can send me your itinerary as a guide. Cheers;)
I covered Cing Jing in one and a half days and Hua Lian in two days. We didn’t managed to cover a lot of the Taroko Park as it rained and made it unsuitable to walk at some parts as we had my daughter with us. But 4 days sounds about right as you can see from my itinerary which I’ve emailed you. Hope it gives you a guide and helps in your planning. If you haven’t booked your driver, can recommend Mrs Gu as she’s super friendly and a very careful driver. Have a good time in Taiwan 🙂
Hi Susan, I happen to see your blog and like the places you went. I am planning to go Taiwan this month. Would you be kind enough to send me your itinerary for my reference? Thanks a lot!

I worry that my girl will be too tired for the long walk..
Hey Susan. Can you kindly share the itinerary with me too? Was planning to go to the places you’ve covered
Sure, I’ve emailed it across to you.
Hi Susan! 🙂 I chanced upon your blog whilst searching for itineraries for Hualien & Cingjing… I think your itinerary would be a great help for my trip, would you mind sharing your itinerary with me as well! 🙂 We’re still deciding between a bus/private driver as well haha. Going in 3 weeks time!!
Thank you so much 🙂

Hi Susan, thanks for the great info on your blog. Am planning to bring my parents to stay at Starry Villa at Cingjing. And would like to go Hualien after that. Do you think I really have to book another accomodation at Hualien side or it will be okay to travel by driver from Starry Villa to Hualien day trip and back to Starry Villa Cingjing? Was thinking of going to Taroko & Qi Xi Tan. Thanks!
The journey from CJ to HL will take a few hours especially if you plan to cover Taroko on the way, which is what we did. We left CJ in the morning and only reached Qi Xi Tan in the evening. So my advise is to look for another accommodation at HL.
Hi Susan, you have such a lovely write up of your Taiwan travel.,
Am planning a first time holiday in Sept..
Can you please send me your itinerary too.
Hi Susan, can you send me your itinerary as I plan to be there in Sept and my plan is pretty similar to yours. Do you return back to Taipei from Hualian?
[…] Hua Lien (Day 5) – Hualien 花莲, Taroko Gorge 太鲁阁 […]
Hi Susan, thanks for the detailed write up of your trip. I’ll be heading to Taiwan this month and I was thinking of a half day exploration of Cing Jing Grassland (plan to stay in Cing Jing the night before) and heading to Taipei, going through Taroko National Gorge much like how you went about Taroko. From your experience do you think this is possible?
We started off from Cing Jing at 9am and only arrived at Chi Shing Tan Beach in the late afternoon after we completed the Taroko National Gorge. So I wouldn’t advise you to continue to Taipei, unless you don’t mind getting in very late.
Hi Susan, I will be going to Taiwan this Sept. It would be helpful if you will share your itinerary with me for reference purposes. Do you have any contact no. for the taxis you used? Thank you.

such a lovely blog entry. is getting a cab cheaper than private van? would appreciate if you could provide some related info and itineraries too. thank you so much.
Hi Vince, that really depends on the number of pax you’re traveling and how much you’re quoted. For us, we took the cab from the airport as we feel cabs will not be hard to find. Private vans sometimes double up as a guide and hence more costly. Hope that helps. I’ve dropped you an email of my itinerary.
Hi Susan, very well written blog for the entire trip and well planned. is it possible to email me your itinerary? I have always wanted to plan a trip which comprises of the places you been. 🙂

May I ask your journey to Hualien is able to cover main scenic areas for Taroko Gorge?Would you recommend if we do it the next full day instead? Appreciate if you can share the driver’s contact no and your itinerary too.Thank you!
The minsu provided transport to Cing Jing farm, but we walked to the Little Swiss Garden. We covered most of the key spots in Taroko Gorge but as it rained, we didn’t go for hikes or go down near the streams. But one day seems enough unless you are looking to go on hikes. I’ve sent you my itinerary and driver’s contacts and hope it helps 🙂

Hi Susan, I came across your site while searching for information to plan my trip. Is it possible to share your itinerary? Thank you.
I’ve emailed it to you. Hope it helps 🙂
Dear Susan, do you mind sharing your itinerary with me? wondering if non-mandarin speaker as me will be difficult to communicate with them? many thanks!
Taipei shouldn’t be too much of a problem but because our main mode of communication was in Mandarin,it’s hard for me to really say. Hope the itinerary helps though.

Hi there, I’ve emailed you my Taiwan itinerary.
Hi Susan, am planning a trip there in the week of late November.
Will you be able to share your itinerary? Also, am also concerned if the trail may be dangerous or difficult to track if we are bringing a 3yo boy along.
At 3 year old, I’ll say be prepared to carry him along the way. There are some parts that can be rocky and uncomfortable to walk. I’ve emailed my itinerary to you 🙂
Hi Susan, will be planning a first time trip there. Would appreciate you sharing your itinerary. Thanks so much!
Apologies for the late reply. I’ve emailed it to you.
