All trails within the Taroko National Park Ecological Protection Area and other controlled zones officially reopened (except Zhuilu Old Road) from 05:00, 27 August 2019.
Basis: Article 19 of the National Parks Law / Natural Disasters Prevention Act.
1. Routes reopened:
Qilai (Main/North Peak, Range from North to South Peaks, South Peak, East Ridge);
Nanhu (out-and-back to Nanhu Cabin, North Section 1);
North Section 2 excluding Mt. Wuming cliff (Y-route, Mt. Shuan/Mt. Lingming, Mt. Shuan Day Ascent);
North Sections 1 and 2 traverse excluding Mt. Wuming cliff;
Bilu-Yangtou Traverse (Mt. Bilu Day Ascent, Mt. Yangtou Day Ascent, Bilu-Yangtou traverse); Other non-traditional routes.
2. Zhuilu Old Road (out-and-back to 3.1K); this trail officially reopened from 07:00 am, 28 August 2019.
3. Due to the persisting low pressure circumfluence above Taiwan's mountain areas from Typhoon Bailu, areas with steep slopes are particularly prone to landslides and collapse immediately after a natural disaster (e.g. earthquake, typhoon). Please pay special attention to your surrounding conditions (e.g. rockfall, felling wood, loose or collapsed ground, flood-prone areas) and err on the side of caution.
