Lookouts and memorials are built on the sides of the bridge, overlooking the panoramic view of the North Ailiao River. Looking down from the Wutai Mountain, the curving bridge resembles the hundred-pace snake guarding the entrance of the tribe.

Shen-Shan Tribe Village(stay 100 minutes)

Traditional stone slate houses are preserved in the tribe and images of the hundred-pace snake, lily flower, and potteries can be seen everywhere. This demonstrates how much the locals value the traditional culture.

While you enjoy the natural scenic views, you can also experience the charisma of the local delicacies by tasting snacks such as aiyu jelly and millet doughnuts.

Wutai Tribe Village(stay 145 minutes)

This is the administrative region with the highest altitude in Pingtung County with the complete Rukai Tribe culture. Every house and tile in the tribe represents not only the craftsmanship and lifestyle of the Rukai people but also their culture.

Artistic totems of the Rukai tribe can be seen everywhere, these totems are great storytellers of the tales of the tribe.

Rinari Tribe Village(stay 60 minutes)

RINARI means “Let’s go! The place where we are all headed” in the Paiwan dialect. This place consists of people from Majia, Paridrayan, Kucapungane after Typhoon Morakot.
