Old Provincial Highway 14

The road, nicknamed as Qilai road or little Taroko, is locally known as the "Unfinished Cross Highway". It’s totally paved and very narrow running along Mugu river. The road is closed to all kind of vehicles (even pedestrians) and only available to residents and workers of a power plant. Access is controlled by the police.

The road was planned to cross the island from west to east but on 2009 the project was formally abandoned. It’s a wonderful road with impressive tunnels and galleries located located within the Taroko National Park.
