This self-guided independent cycling adventure features a carefully crafted and easy to follow route through the Taroko Gorge to the verdant East Rift Valley and on to the dazzling East Coast. With our audio guide, suggestions for must-see stops and best eateries, and a few helpful words in the local language, you’ll seek out your own adventure, stop at places you otherwise wouldn’t find, and make connections with locals.

You'll emerge from the valley at the southern end of your unforgettable adventure for a final cruise along the coast, before rolling into the laidback seaside town of Taitung.
