Puli 埔里: Beigang Canyon 北港溪峽谷 (21 km, 3 hours)

Beigang Canyon 北港溪峽谷 is really great place for easy run within amazing canyon. On the end of unpaved road is nice hot spring bath. You will love this easy run between high walls.

Petr & Eva

We drove our car to the recreation area Huisun 惠蓀林場 which we visit alredy (trip here), the entry is aroun 100 NTD per car and per person. We park in lower part of the turistic area. And then find small road up to the gate to the Beigang Canyon 北港溪峽谷. Sure it is closed for the visitor.

There is no any problem in orientation, just follow upstream of the river. There is not much elevation and go to the end (there is small house and before hot spring bath) is just 10 km of easy run.

I explore little left branch of the river as well, but will need more time go more deep and will be more challenge. And it should be possible reach some water fall (大轉折支流口). The right branche of river goes from Lixing village 力行村 and I am not sure that it can be done, maybe but with swimming for sure.

This is window to my diary, should works fine on computer:
