Taromak Tribe is the only Rukai tribe in Taitung, locating only 11 kilometers away from Taitung City. The earliest reference to Taromak was about Dutchmen entering the tribe’s territory without permission and being killed by clans of the tribe, therefore it was falsely perceived as a cannibal tribe. While most traditional heritages have been burnt down in a fire, recent years the tribe gradually realize that their culture is disappearing and therefore start to work on the recovery and preservation of traditions.
 In tour around the tribe, remaining parts of old tribe and halls could be seen, as well as the rebuilt ancestral house for worshiping events. You can also see prototypes and building structures of traditional Rukai stone slab house, even some modern buildings with characters of slab stone house mixed into the architecture.
After being shown around about the life and culture of Rukai people, you can visit the clear creek and shoal inside the forest. Plenty of locals from other tribes and tourists are all attracted here and attempt to stay cool in hot summer by swimming. There are a few shoal in this area; however, it’s still important to watch out for your own safety, and for the best, it is recommended to have a local person who knows the terrain take you there.
