Half-Day River Hiking: Morning
Half-Day River Hiking: Morning
River-climbing, water diving, and swimming.
Conquer the current!

If you come to Hualien, you have to do some river hiking! Hualien's natural environment and textured terrain offer surprises around every corner. River hiking is a very direct way to experience the wild, and a challenge to overcome obstacles and discover new sights. Adventure together with your friends or family, and you'll be hard-pressed not to start loving this land.
 
This half-day river hiking trip is appropriate for all ages, and is a reasonably relaxed outing. It's a chill opportunity to experience nature without making your muscles ache too much. We have five choices for hiking routes in Hualien, all with different characteristics. Each one is a treat in its own right.

※Every route of the trip needs at least 2 people in order to register. Please consider all of the conditions and choices below as well as the different ticket choices, and reserve your trip appropriately. If you have any other or different needs for your trip, please contact Xtreme Taiwan, and we will tailor our services to your needs.
※San Zhan River is a river than many people come to see when they visit Hualien. The upper stream of the river is split into San Zhan North and San Zhan South, which both eventually reach the sea. The south branch is hugely popular and there are usually lots of people dotted across it enjoying the water in the sun, but it is because of this that the north branch is very quiet, rarely seeing any people at all, and therefore much better for experiencing natural river hiking.
 
San Zhan River is a river than many people come to see when they visit Hualien. The upper stream of the river is split into San Zhan North and San Zhan South, which both eventually reach the sea. Part of San Zhan South is what's known as Gold Canyon, a large swath of the southern branch that had golden rocks, beautifully reflective water, and great views of the landscape.

Sha Po Dang(Sandy Hills)
Sandy Hills Creek, is formerly known as the Atayal language Meilun Creek, the "sand woman named Dang" had a lot of meaning connected to rain. We always said  the sand woman named Dang Sambo was a woman rich with gold, clean water, and lush forests. Sandy Hills Creek is part of a dam which is very deep, so this is the best place for jumping into the water from different heights. Sandy Hills Creek is a shorter route, but it has a lot of contrast in elevation, so it's really great for climbing, diving, and jumping into the water.
 
※ White Abalone Creek
White Abalone Creek is great for experienceing waterfalls, the endgangeredwhite abalone species, and the possible sight of green rock or jade. It's has one of the most abundant carp populations of any river. It's not too rough of a journey, and is very suitable for a family to take part in. You might even find some pretty or valuable jad or purple stones.
 
※ Emerald Valley
Emerald Valley is located in the village of Tongmen xiulin beside the Mugua River and some unnamed creeks with valley winds brushing the most beautiful scenery.
Because of years of protection, this area has become a very rich ecosystem.
Emerald Valley has a lot of historical monuments left by the Japanese, but also has a variety of natural landscapes, along with many boulders that need strong hands and feet to get to the top of. There are rapids, pools, and waterfalls everywhere. It's has many great spots for fish-watching. Enjoy the natural SPA.
