TAIPEI (Taiwan News)--As the 1.2-kilometer Qingjing sightseeing skywalk in central Taiwan is scheduled to be open on May 27, Nantou County Commissioner Lin Ming-chen (林明溱) on Thursday urged the public to park their cars in three nearby parking lots and take shuttle buses to access the skywalk to avoid traffic tie-up.
Expecting heavy traffic in the area after the opening of the skywalk, located in Ren-ai Township, Lin called on the public to park their cars in the Wushe parking lot (霧社停車場), Qingjing No. 1 parking lot (清境第一停車場) or the Meifeng parking lot (梅峰停車場), and then take a shuttle bus to Green Green Grasslands (青青草原) to visit the skywalk, which is said to be the highest-altitude skybridge in the country.

The price of admission to the skywalk is NT$50 for a regular visitor, and NT$30 for residents of Nantou County.
The commissioner said currently all the parking lots located in the neighborhood of Qingjing, including Qingjing Guest House parking lot, Qingjing No. 1 parking lot and the Green Green Grasslands parking lot, have a total capacity for 39 buses and 410 cars.
The county government will assess whether the number of shuttle buses should be increased one month after the opening of the skywalk, Lin said.
Qingjing, in its broad sense, covers Qingjing Farm and its environs, from Wushe to Meifeng. It is intersected by Provincial Highway 14A. Its main scenic spots include Green Green Grasslands, Guanshan Pastoral Areas, Shoushan Park Ecological Area, 487-Steps Trail, and Small Swiss Garden.
