trail closures in Taroko Gorge and elsewhere

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

According to an announcement on the website of the Yushan National Park, of which the Walami Trail is part of, the trail is closed until further notice because of damage by the latest typhoon. The visitor center not far from the trail head will be open again at the end of the month.

I would just call the visitor center a few days before you want to go there. The telephone number is (03)888-7560.
We have a new website: Check it out!

If you are planning to camp on the Walami Trail at the large group campsite or at the cabin then you should definitely call ahead and reserve a spot.
