Baiyang and Shakadang trails under renovation from June 29 – July 3 2020 and July 6 2020
To improve Park safety, Taroko National Park Headquarters has scheduled slope scrubbing (land/rockslide prevention) from June 29 – July 3 2020 on Baiyang and Shakadang trails. Therefore, the slope scrubbing (rockfall prevention) section of trails will either be partially temporarily closed or crowd control measures will be implemented. Please take note and abide by these control measures.
Details of trail closure due to slope scrubbing are as follows:
- Baiyang Trail: Slope scrubbing will be carried out from 29 (Mon) June – July 3 (Fri). The second half of the trail will be temporarily closed during this period. The first half of the trail (from the entrance to the first viewing platform- 1 km) will remain open during this period.
- Shakadang Trail: Slope scrubbing will be carried out at 274 m on July 6 (Mon). Crowd control will be implemented on that day, and visitors will still be able to enter the trail.
Taroko National Park Headquarters maintains that the above slope scrubbing projects are necessary to mitigate landslides and rockfalls, and will ultimately strengthen tourist safety. At the same time, these projects will be implemented in a way that will minimize effects on tourism and traffic. We ask that tourists kindly cooperate with the listed measures and to follow the instructions of on-site construction personnel. In the case of inclement weather, the above construction periods may be altered or postponed; if so, the Park Headquarters will announce any changes on this website.
