Honghe in Wulai District was formerly known as "Jiajiuliao." As Nanshi River flows through this area, a big bend was formed here. Under the cutting and squeezing of the river, the rocks on the riverbank became slanted by 45 degrees. In addition, stream capture is done by a sub-stream here, creating a riverbed of slanted rocks. This magnificent sight of ingenious craftsmanship of the great nature keeps visitors in awe here for a while for full appreciation.
In addition to enjoying the spectacular scenery of Honghe Valley, you could also visit the flat and easy Jiajiuliao Trail. Jiajiuliao Trail is the renovated old carriageway for transporting timber. With a total length of 2.1 kilometers, it ends at Wulai Great Bridge. The trail is flat and easy throughout, with trees on both sides and rich ecology including swallowtail butterflies, green-banded swallowtail butterflies, Romer’s tree frogs, and brush pot trees. It is a great place to indulge yourself in the great nature.
