Changhong Bridge located at the mouth of the Siuguluan River, is the terminus for rafters. At the time of construction, in 1969, it was the longest single-span bridge in Taiwan. It is said to resemble a rainbow, hence its name "long rainbow" bridge. Below the bridge lies an area of strangely shaped limestone rocks. With a little imagination, the rocks can be said to resemble many different things. Small boats make regular trips around the area if you wish to see the stone formations up close.
