Lyushuei used to be a tribe of the Taroko people, and but is now transformed into a geological museum; Heliou is a prominent camping area of Central Cross-lsland Highway. The Lyushuei-Heliou Trail, a part of the Hehuan Cross-peak Trail, links the two places. During the early ages, Tarok people inhabited the area, and the Hehuan Cross-peak Trail was the major communicating path between tribes. Duing the period of Japanese occupation, the trail broadened to its current width, and also became the heritage site of the Taroko Battle. As Taroko National Park was being established, most parts of the ancient trail heritage were preserved and repaired. Lyushuei-Heliou Trail is gradual and suitable for all ages to hike. However, there is a dim, 30 meter long tunnel as a part of the trail, so entering with a spotlight is highly suggested. Moreover, rocks might sporadically all down on the trail, so tourists are also advised to borrow safety helmets from the Tribe Bay Tourist Service Centre.
