Caoling Historical Trail Hike

4 Reviews


  • Hike on a historic, relic strewn Qing-era trail
  • Enjoy panoramic views of ocean, mountains and more
  • Discover the unique flora and fauna of Northern Taiwan
  • Celebrate your hike with a trip to Fulong Beach or Keelung Harbor
From city to mountaintop and down to the sea, on this full day excursion we'll hike along the historic Caoling Trail, the only remaining section of a route built in the Qing Dynasty that once served as sole land link between Tamsui and Yilan.

The moderate 10km hike begins in Dali and ends at Fulong Beach, offering along the way panoramic views of Taiwan's northern coastal mountains and the ocean beyond. Expect excellent photo opportunities of one of Taiwan's most unique offshore islands, Guishandao, or Turtle Island, which in addition to resembling a massive turtle also boasts an underwater hot spring known for attract a plethora of the ocean's top predators.

A informative day with myTaiwan Tour.

I had a very nice and informative day with myTaiwan Tour. The visited attraction are very interesting. Our Guide was very friendly, very well informed. I got pickup free of charege from my hotel - how nice! Take this tour to get a perfect overview in one day. Highly recommended!

Best decision I made in my taipei trip

“Best decision I made in my taipei trip” I went for a week holiday in taipei and decided to book a private tour with MyTaiwanTour for the first 2 days. I met Tai at the airport and he took us to various places for the 2 days. Tai was one of the best tour guides I ever had - very patient with us and not watching the clock or bringing us to tourist traps to buy stuff. I also went to Hualien and Taichung and believe me the guides there are nowhere near the quality of Tai (I will NEVER hire a private taxi guide in taipei again after being ripped off at Taichung and it was not cheaper either after "additional costs"). Thank you Tai for a wonderful experience - you are the best!!!

Fabulous, Fun & Knowledgeable

“Fabulous, Fun & Knowledgeable” 5 of 5 starsReviewed May 12, 2015 Our tour Guide, TING, with My Taiwan Tours was absolutely the best guide we in had in Asia! Her English was impeccable, she was incredibly knowledgeable about the artifacts in the Museum, and she is fun-loving, enthusiastic and loves meeting people to show them "her Taiwan". Book with and ask for Ting as your guide. You won't be disappointed!!

The trail is beautiful!

This is a fantastic way to get out of the city and see the beauty of Taiwan. Susan and team made this a really fun day. The trail is beautiful - I got carried away photographing it all. Recommended for those who like to be active and see the natural side of the country :)
