Liji Badlands

Saturday: Open 24 hours a day



The Liji Badlands at Liji Village,situated by Beinan Creek,looks as desolate as the moon's surface,hence nicknamed "Moon World"". This rare geological landscape was formed when the sediments in deep sea rose to the surface after a series of crustal plate tectonic movements. The mudstones were mainly muds mixed with other crustal materials. Gullies and gorges appeared on the mudstone surface through weathering and water erosion.

    No hiking. Roadside pullout only. Ok

    The badlands themselves cover a large area and look gorgeous. However the “park” is extremely small, really just a platform with some signs. Nowhere to hike at all, which is a shame since the geology is unique and we would have loved to hike around the area. Worth driving by for a look but that’s about it.

    beautiful and big badlands how to get there

    Traveler rating:4 2016-08

    I come here by bicycle, take mahenghen bld or the road after forest park parallel to beinan river, you arrive at 11 road, turn right and go along 11, there Is a bridge (the second across the river coming from the see), and you see the badlands, if you go along the river without crossing the bridge you have a beautiful view and you arrive to another bridge, if you cross the second bridge you can get a road (under construction) just at the feet of the badlands, go along but you can get the there bridge. If you want see more, cross the 3 bridge and go up 500 m, there are pavillon, some sig es and information about badland and a small patch.

    位於台東卑南溪畔 是台東地質特殊混同的<利吉混同層> 因為<菲律賓海板塊>與<歐亞大陸板塊>碰撞產生的泥岩,經過擠壓,造山運動隆起 又因風化、雨蝕,造成風巒嶙峋,奇特又荒涼的地形! 利吉混同層極不穩定,遇雨便落石崩他...
