Buluowan is a two layered fluvial terrace, downstream along Liwu River. In the Taroko tribe language, "Buluowan" means "Echos of the Canyon". This terrace was formerly inhabited by the Taroko tribe and isnow a service station of Taroko National Park. It will become a park dedicated to commemorate the aboriginal Taroko people.
Buluowan can be divided into two distinct parts: The upper and lower terrace. There is a 30 meter height difference between the two levels, with the lower one being about 370 meters above sea level, and is where the Service Station located. The office provides tourist services and information, including multimedia demonstrations of the development and history of the Atayal tribe. On the left of the management district there is a Taroko handicraft museum displaying Taroko fabric, baskets, and other traditional crafts.
Walking down from the lower terrace, you arrive at Meander Core Park, from which you can view the entire river valley and canyon. The upper terrace was developed as a residential area and research center, where hotels, restaurants, and convention facilities are provided.
Buluowan is a seasonally tropical rain forest, and the geography has been formed into meander core and a fluvial terrace by the movement of Liwu River. The Taiwan lily (Lilium formosanum), an Asiatic species of lily, is successfully cultivated here. Every April when all of the lilies blossom, the wind animates the flowers, and as they dance the heady fragrance of the blossoms fills the fresh air of the river valley.
This part of Tailuge(Taroko) Gorge is composed of marble cliff faces covered with small holes, the result of long-term erosion by river and ground water. House swifts and Pacific swallows often forage and nest here, giving the place its name.
Located on the northeast beach of Xincheng Town,Qixintan is the only county level scenic area in Hualien. Besides the crescent bay and clear blue eaters of the Pacific Ocean, the beach is full of colorful pebbles. Qixintan, "Seven Star Lake" in Chinese, got the poetic mane because there were several lakes scattered around the area before they were filled in for construction. Qixintan used to be a small fishing village. Due to its abundant natural beauty, multiple scenic trails, beach pavilions, pagodas, and Star-Gazing Square, Qixintan has become a popular tourist destination, particularly known for its remarkably blue sky and turquoise seas. Very close to Hualien City, it is the best place to watch the moon and stars, gaze at the grand mountains, steep cliffs afar as well as the twisting highways, or simply meditate as you are soothed by the sound of the ocean waves washing over the pebbles.
Shakadang Trail was originally named “Mysterious Valley Trail” and was renamed to “Shakadang Trail” in 2001. The trail is built along the river cliff for the visitor to observe the clear river water, rock folds and the plants.
