All trails within the Taroko National Park Ecological Protection Area reopened from 05:00, 10 August 2019

Announcement Date:2019-08-09 ~2019-08-16 Released By:Taroko National Park Headquarters

All trails within the Taroko National Park Ecological Protection Area and other controlled zones officially reopened from 05:00, 10 August 2019.

Basis: Article 19 of the National Parks Law / Natural Disasters Prevention Act.

In detail: 

1. Routes reopened:

  • Qilai (Main/North Peak, Range from North to South Peaks, South Peak, East Ridge); 
  • Nanhu (out-and-back to Nanhu Cabin, North Section 1); 
  • North Section 2 excluding Mt. Wuming cliff (O-route, Mt. Shuan/Mt. Lingming, Mt. Shuan Day Ascent); 
  • North Sections 1 and 2 traverse excluding Mt. Wuming cliff;  
  • Bilu-Yangtou Traverse (Mt. Bilu Day Ascent, Mt. Yangtou Day Ascent, Bilu-Yangtou traverse); 
  • Mt. Qingshui; 
  • Zhuilu Old Road (out-and-back to 3.1K);
  • Other non-traditional routes. 

2. Due to persisting low pressure circumfluence above Taiwan's mountain areas from Typhoon Lekima, areas with steep slopes are particularly prone to landslides and collapse immediately after a natural disaster (e.g. earthquake, typhoon). Please pay special attention to your surrounding conditions (e.g. rockfall, felling wood, loose or collapsed ground, flood-prone areas) and err on the side of caution.
