Donghe Bridge Scenic Area

Tuesday: Open 24 hours a day



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

    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.

    東河舊橋歷史久遠,始建於1930年,現今的舊橋橋墩署名落款者是<俞鴻鈞> 舊橋的設計在幾十年前很別緻,通過舊橋是另一條登山步道的起點~ 新橋建於1992年與舊橋平行 從舊橋望向新橋,景緻好美,是拍照取景的好地方~

    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...
