Taroko National Park continues to enhance epidemic prevention measures following the national epidemic escalation to Level 3.

The Central Epidemic Command Center announced at a press conference on May 19, 2021, that the national epidemic alert is raised to Level 3 regulations. Taroko National Park Headquarters has also strengthened the implementation of related control measures at the park. These measures follow the “National Park Area Alert" mandate. The Level 3 control measures limit the people in recreational areas in response to the rise of domestically transmitted COVID-19 cases. The following control measures are enforced in the park.

1. All indoor exhibitions are closed, including the Taroko Terrace (Taroko Visitor Center), Buluowan, Tianxiang, Mt. Hehuan Service Station, and other indoor recreational areas. Visitors are prohibited from entering any of these facilities. In addition, all recreational service shops in the park are requested to cease operations as of May 15th, 2021.

2. Mountain cabins and the ecological protection areas are closed in Taroko National Park. Be advised that mountain cabins are entirely closed, and people are prohibited from entering the national park ecological protection area (including trails). Those who have obtained entry permits will have them automatically revoked. The Park Headquarters and National Parks Police Corps will increase inspections of trails to prevent mountaineering activities, mountain cabin use, and illegal entry into the ecological protected areas.

3. Outdoor recreational areas: outdoor scenic spots and trails with a single entrance and exit are entirely closed (including Shakadang trail, Shanyue Suspension Bridge, Zhuilu Old Road, Jiuqudong (Tunnel of Nine Turns) trail, Huide trail, Baiyang Trail, Xiaoqilai trail, etc.) For other outdoor recreational areas, all people must wear face masks throughout the journey, maintain social distancing (1 meter), and are restricted from the gatherings of 10+ people. The Park Headquarters will send personnel to step up inspections and urge people not to go to these recreational scenic spots and trails until the epidemic conditions improve.

4. Parking lots will reduce the number of available parking spaces by 40% and be adjusted according to the on-site conditions. Parking space capacity is set at 40%. This measure is to reduce the proximity of people in recreation areas.

Taroko National Park Headquarters urges visitors to comply with all the epidemic prevention measures, including properly wearing face masks, hand washing with antibacterial soap, and maintaining social distancing (1 meter). Furthermore, people are urged to be diligent in self-health monitoring and stay current with the epidemic prevention measures. Taroko National Park Headquarters will abide by the latest epidemic prevention guidelines set by the Central Epidemic Command Center and adjust measures according to local conditions. Thank you for your cooperation.
