HUALIEN, TAIWAN (TraNews) – To most people, Hualien’s Siouguluan River is best known for its rafting adventure. Each year between April and October is the peak season of rafting. Siouguluan River travels a distance of approximately 90 kilometers through Siouguluan Mountain, which is also the longest river on the east coast.
In recent years, Siouguluan River has become a prime destination for rafters that allows tourists to take a guided tour on a motor boat down 24 kilometers of the river. The tour takes about three or four hours, crossing through nearly twenty torrents and rapids. Meanwhile, tourists also get to see how beautifully the river cuts and bends through the mountains and enjoy imposing natural scenery along the journey.
Rafting on Siouguluan River is always full of fun and excitement. And, the best part about this fun-filled adventure ride is that you never know what is ahead of you, and sometimes it gets quite bumpy and stimulating. For those who cannot handle too much excitement, you’d better get some rest before hitting the road.
