Hualien County is one of Taiwan’s most beautiful areas, with tourists visiting daily to explore Taroko Gorge. Enter FeiCui Valley (琉璃瀑布), south of Hualien city, in the aboriginal Truku land. FeiCui stream offers gorgeous river tracing perfect for beginners. Crystal clear waters flow through massive marble boulders, past waterfalls, and into a perfect natural swimming hole.
Starting in Hualien, on the East Coast of Taiwan, we will drive roughly 30 minutes south towards the Truku land. The FeiCui stream starts with a man made waterfall, where we’ll find locals relaxing and barbecuing, however we will continue up, to a natural, gorgeous waterfall.
The trace is not too difficult, with the options to either climb through the rushing river, climb the mini waterfalls, or simply walk along the big rocks when tired. Before reaching the waterfall, we will come to a spectacularly blue swimming hole, perfect for lunch and relaxation before continuing.
After tracing back downstream, we will make our way into the town for some aboriginal delicacies!
