Wulu Gorge is located between the South Cross-Island Highway and Lidao, and is a large S-shaped gorge cut by the Wulu River. It is about 4 kilometers in length. Due to the fact that the Guan Mountain (Guanshan) Mountain peak in the Central Mountain Range forms broken ridges at this point, and also due to the long-term erosion caused by the flow of the high mountain rivers, the Wulu Gorge is made up of steep precipices, resulting in a very majestic landscape.

In Wulu Gorge, the Tianlong Suspension Bridge crosses over the Wulu Stream. It is about 110 meters long and less than 1.5 meters wide. It connects the precipices on each side of the gorge. Looking down at the landscape from the suspension bridge, one can see the surging, rushing waters of the Wulu River, 80 meters below.

In addition to the gorge with its suspension bridge, another unique natural resource in this area is the Wulu Hot Springs. The spring water of the Wulu Hot Springs is of a low alkaline, carbonate, hydrogen-sodium quality. The water contains fluoride, and is crystal clear, colorless, and odorless, with a heat ranging from 70°C to 80°C. The most unique feature of the Wulu Hot Springs is that the water does not emit from underground, but gushes out from the narrow crevices in the mountain cliffs located in the Wulu Gorge.
