"Shanyue Suspension Bridge" crosses the Liwu River from the Buluowan terrace and overlooks the magnificence of Taroko Gorge from a high perspective. It will be renamed! The "Taroko National Park Indigenous Area Resources Co-management Association" (hereinafter referred to as the "Co-management Association") has decided to change the name of the Shanyue Suspension Bridge to "Buluowan Suspension Bridge," adhering to the traditional name of the local Taroko people. Taroko National Park has gradually updated the signage and website information. Further publications will follow the new bridge name. Due to the adjustment of the online reservation system of the suspension bridge, reservations will be temporarily suspended from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on May 16, 2022.


Some members proposed to restore the traditional place names to that of the Truku tribe during the joint management committee held last year. Respecting the wishes of the local people and the historical/cultural connotation of the Truku people, the name change to "Buluowan Suspension Bridge" was enacted by Taroko National Park HQ.


Buluowan Suspension Bridge (formerly known as Shanyue Suspension Bridge) is 196 meters long and 153 meters above the Liwu Valley. It officially opened on August 12, 2020. It is a barrier-free suspension bridge, accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. It is suitable for tourists of all ages. The bridge provides a great perspective of the Taroko Gorge, and it has become a popular attraction for many tourists since its opening.
