Mukumugi is known for the best nature swimming pool in Taiwan in the summer time. You cannot help but dive in the crystal clear river directly after seeing it. Who says you can only stay at home and switch on the air conditioning in summer?
Who says you can only visit the night market when you come to Taiwan? Let’s take a sunbath and dabble in water!
Crystal clear water
Oh my goodness! The water is pretty clear!
To swim here is really the pleasure of life.
This secrete lake is so serene and peaceful that I want to stay here for a whole day. I don’t want to go back to work anymore~
Do try the cliff jumping when you are here in Mugumuyu. This is absolute awesome in hot summer. However, please do not try by yourself without a local who well know the place or safety outfit. There is always a risk in nature.
Remember to take your GoPro so that you can take pictures underwater. But it might be too cold to swim in winter. The best thing in winter is to soak your feet and take the foot massage. It’s for free!
Fish foot spa
這邊的魚可是會吃你的腳的, 據說可以撒皮去除掉. 被這種魚咬有時會痛，一開始還有點怕怕的，但其實也還好啦，只有有時會痛一點. 來到這邊一定要泡一下腳，體驗一下吃腳皮的魚也是很好玩！
The photographer really loves here as well. (Nikon D710+ 0 Tokina 11-16mm) by William Ho
The biggest satisfaction in life is to lie on the rocks. These are all marbles.
Gorge and human
Stay here a day can recover from a breakup.
It takes an hour or so to arrive in Mukumugi. It’s an ideal place for family trip because the route is almost flat.

Taroko Aboriginal Culture
The most important daily necessities for Taroko Tribe are aboriginal knives. Those skulls of the wild boars are all their prey.
Aboriginal traditional house
You can see the aboriginal artwork during the trip. It’s so adorable.
It’s the prey for aboriginal hunters. Guess it! (⊙ˍ⊙)
來到這邊一定也要嚐一嚐原住民的美食. 吃這邊的放山雞&野菜. 這些料理都是由在地的原住民親自準備的. 雖然味道和chinese food不同. 但很有野味也非常好吃!
Caution for swimmer
- 帶毛巾 帶蛙鏡 泳褲 換洗衣物 帶一些錢
How to get here?
慕谷慕魚位在花蓮市的西南方xx公里. 基本上這邊只能做公車但是很不頻繁. 或是請計程車司機載你過去. 不然就是參加local tour了.
Permit is required
For Mugumuyu, you need to apply the permit from the local police. Remember to bring your passport and go to the Tongman police station. Fill out the form provided by the police and it’s done. Very simple steps. However, you might need a local phone number and emergency contact person for applying the permit.
