Taroko Xilaan Trail




Let us bring you to one of the most mysterious hike in Taroko national park – Xilaan trail. The entrance is at the Central Cross-lsland Highway, not far from 185km; however, it is easy to overlook. It is not only an ancient arcana, but a traffic main artery for past indigenous peoples.

The tribe was located on the hilltop platform, opposite from the Eternal Spring Changchun Shrine; however, because the village has been relocated for 30 years, the trails are inaccessible, and the trails of the mountain trails have been destroyed and not reconstucted by years. Therefore, you may appreciate the vicissitudes of changing things.

You will be climbing along a steep hike, and passing by a mysterious cave which blew a cool breeze all year round and finally, meet the quodis arcana vent. Also, since the ecological landscape here is quite rich, you will certainly greeted by the sweet bird and insect songs.
Enjoy the mountain breeze and cool off outside the natural vent, here you will unwind yourself from the bustling city.
