Nantou's Houtanjing Sky Bridge (aka just Sky Bridge) is a tourist attraction near Nantou City, which features great views of Yuanlin and Changhua county. If you visit Nantou, this place should definitely be on your list.
Nantou Sky Bridge was built in 2009 at a price of 20 million NT by the Houtanjing National Scenic area. It is 204 meters long, and sits 70 meters above the valley below. Only 150 people are allowed on the bridge at a time.
8:30 to 5:30
50 NT per person
How to get there:
By Car/Scooter: Take highway 139 from Nantou City up the mountain until you reach the bridge.
By bus: From Yuanlin TRA Station, you can take Changhua Bus 6925A to Xiaping, and from there it is about a ten minute walk to the bridge.
Please see below:
I have been to the Nantou Sky Bridge twice, once by car and once by bike. The views have made it worth it every time. There is parking on the street and near the entrance of the bridge.
If you prefer not to walk the bridge, you can also see the views from this tower.
The bottom of the bridge is covered so you can't see directly down.
