Xiuguluan
River starts in the Central Mountain Range, flows north along East Rift
Valley, turns east at Ruisui Township, crosses Coastal Mountain Range, and
empties into the Pacific Ocean at Dagangkou. 104 km in length, it is eastern
Taiwan’s largest river and the only to cross Coastal Mountain Range.
Xiuguluan Canyon, located in the downstream portion between Ruisui and
Dagangkou, is home to over 20 rapids, magnificent sights, and interesting
rock formations, having become a popular spot for white water rafting. The
white water rafting route starts at Ruisui Bridge and lasts about two hours,
passing several rapids and a beautiful suspension bridge before arriving at
the most dangerous rapids, which must be navigated before reaching Qimei Rest
Area. After Qimei, the canyon takes on a different beauty, as the river
becomes deeper and wider and has a series of whirlpools and rapids, which is
the height of the experience. By the time Changhong Bridge comes into view,
the river has widened out and run smooth again, and the journey comes to an
end at the scenic intersection of Changhong Bridge. The entire length is 24
km and takes 3-4 hours. Rafting takes place all year round, though April to
October is peak season. The trip usually starts around 7-12AM, and rarely in
the afternoon; starting after 3PM is prohibited. In 2010, in addition to
rafting ecology package tours, a new Rafting Ironman Event was organized,
including biking, running, and extreme sports. Fresh innovation and physical
challenges satisfy visitors in search of variation and excitement. Come to
Xiuguluan River this summer and enjoy a different kind of water experience.
