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 bridge

    Traveler rating:3 2018-02

    This 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 Bridge

    Traveler rating:4 2018-03

    This 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.

    旧道に使われていた橋

    Traveler rating:3 2018-12

    旧道として使われていた橋が公園のように歩行者用の橋として整備されています。橋を花蓮方面に側渡った場所にトイレと駐車場が設置されています。週末や観光シーズンには果物などを売る人が来ている事もあります。 東河側には有名な包子店が有るので、肉まんやあん饅片手に散歩も良いかもしれません(少し離れていますけど)

    這是台東人的回憶

    Traveler rating:5 2017-11

    這條舊橋已不開放給車子通行,但是這是老台東人一個指標性的回憶,它的歷史意義遠大於實質,是兒時遠足的童年回憶

    東河橋在有名的東河包子附近,橋的二旁的景色非常漂亮,橋墩的造型很特別,中間是拱型,如果大石頭沖入溪可從中間流過
