A long, thin, and brightly-colored suspension bridge stretches horizontally across the Zhuoshui River Valley. Like a piece of string, it connects both sides of the Zuoshui River. As early as the Japanese occupation era, this bridge has served as the Rukai people of Duona Village's important gate to the outside world. Many have waited here, seeing off the departures and waiting for the return of their people. The bridge spans 232 meters in length, and sits at a height of 103 meters. It's known to be Southeast Asia's number one suspension bridge in altitude. And although the bridge's safety railings are quite secure, even if you aren't scared of the heights the bridge will still feel rather unstable when you're walking across it. If you accidentally glance down at the grand river valley below, your feet will certainly start trembling! However, since the bridge is located at a relatively high location, you can easily see the entire Zhuoshui River and the surrounding hills and scenery. The field of vision is wide and vast. Different sceneries are offered during the dry and wet seasons, with each possessing its own merit. Coupled with the cool mountain breeze, this area is worth a visit. Nowadays, bicycles and motorcycles are not allowed to pass through the bridge. If you have to park, you must use the parking lot near the suspension bridge. From the parking lot, you'll need to climb a short road before you'll reach your destination. Although some of the steeper sections of the road may get cause you to gasp for air, but the views along the way are worth it!
