The Huatung Valley or Hualien-Taitung Valley Chinese: 花東縱谷; pinyin: Huādōng Zònggǔ; Wade–Giles: Hua1-tung1 Tsung4-ku3, also known as East Rift Valley or the Longitudinal Valley, is a long and narrow valley located between the Chungyang Range and Haian Range It is also recognized as a plain area which stretches for about 180 kilometers near the eastern coast of Taiwan, passes from Hualien City at the north to Taitung City at the south It was called Nakasendō Plain 中仙道平野, Nakasendō heiya or Nakasendō during era of Japanese rule

The valley is believed to be part of the northern terminus of the Philippine Mobile Belt, a complex collection of tectonic plate fragments and volcanic intrusions

There are three larger river systems flowing through this valley, including the Hualien River, Xiuguluan River, and Beinan River, all of which flow into the Pacific Ocean

Huatung Highway, a section of the Provincial Highway No 9, runs the whole length of the valley from North to South
