Along Central Cross-Island Highway, after passing Jiuqudong (Tunnel of Nine Turns),
you will arrive at Cimu Bridge(Motherly Devotion Bridge), which is an H-Shape hanging bridge with marble
stone lions on each end and with marble lotus stones on two sides. The rock beneath
the bridge looks like a frog. The frog-like rock is composed of black layer of schist
at the top and white marble at the bottom. A pavilion was built on this frog rock,
becoming the crown on the frog. This was built by late President Chiang Jing-guo,
in memory of his mother, during construction of the road. Cimu pavilion area is
on the east side of the bridge, built by late President Chiang Kai-shek, in memory
of his mother, Mrs. Wang.
This area where Laoxi River flowing from the marble valley into Liwu River is called
the "Heliu" which stands for "merging flows." The cliff has
two different rocks layers. Going west after the turn, on the river terrace is the
Heliu camping area. It has space for eleven tents. There is no charge and a first
come, first served method operates. Remember that the parking space is limited and
that during summer vacation, holidays and weekend this will always be a very popular
site for family outdoors activities.
