Marongarong is at the mouth of Mawuku River in Donghe. It faces the Pacific and has a backdrop of cloud-shrouded mountains. Here is the legendary Formosa that Western missionaries talked of.

Paddle upstream under the arch of beautiful old Donghe Bridge. The Emperor Rocks look like a group of white islands. As you pass between the rocks you will merge with the mountains and waters of the east coast. This activity is also the village’s sacred coming of age ritual.
Search for treasure in the mountain forest, walk across Celestial Bridge, see macaques; go back in time through Xiama Tunnel, then pass through the tranquil and uncomplicated village. Take a walk to Jinzun’s Baisha (White Sand) Bay and enjoy some leisurely and romantic afternoon time.
To enjoy natural aboriginal village food, visit the east coast!
