Donghe Bridge Scenic Area
Donghe Bridge stretches over Mawuku Creek. There are actually two bridges: an old bridge and a new bridge. It is noteworthy that the two ends of the old bridge bear different designs due to the geological condition. The northern shore is made of tough limestone (aka white Kingstone) and thus the northern end of the bridge was built with arched piers,while the southern end was merely supported with frames,because the foundation was laid on a soft sedimentary at the southern shore. This truly demonstrates the architect’s skillful design fitting with the local geography. The old bridge is now only open to pedestrians. Vehicles can only take the new red bridge. When walking on the old bridge,please do not forget to take a moment to appreciate the beautiful white limestone underneath the bridge. While the green creek continues to flow,the red bridge on the opposite forms a picturesque view with the creek water,the ocean,and the blue sky.

Old road bridgeThis used to be the road bridge that connects both sides of the gorge. Now it is used as a footbridge that connects both sides.
An Old Historical BridgeThis bridge that was built by the Japanese using different types of technology across the era has a rich history, and you probably need a local guide or host to explain more in detail given that there is no clear signboard or description of the history behind. The bridge is now mainly used for tourists and is generally a quiet stop with comparatively fewer visitors than other attractions. However, this is a nice stopover for photos of the current red color bridge now used for vehicles, and the valley (beside the bridge) and the ocean that is in the distance. There is a small, short trail that leads on from the bridge down into the valley, although we did not attempt it as there were a flight of steps going down. Restroom facilities are available, as with a makeshift stall selling local fruits when we visited around noon time.
橋上風景好 設計有獨到四月時在都蘭的便利超商牆面上看到東河舊橋照片，後來又在書上看到移居台東人士推薦東河舊橋的竹筏體驗，此行趁行程空檔，特來探訪！ 在「舊街東河包子」填飽略感飢餓的肚子，循舊街馬路直走到底，即見東河舊橋，幾...
過橋後的小路可到達馬武溪邊如果只是在橋上欣賞風景, 就錯失了橋下的美景. 我們過了橋之後, 發現有一條小路可以通到馬武溪邊, 沿路還有蝌蚪, 後來查了一下是著名的划竹筏地點. 之後也有看到明信片是以此為景色. 很值得一訪
