Description

Explore some of Taiwan's most stunning scenery on this full-day tour to Taroko National Park departing from Taipei. Ramble through the trails in the gorge and enjoy the stunning view of the soaring marble cliffs. Meet your guide in the early morning, and enjoy a cozy ride to Hualien. Take a break at TCC DAKA Park, an ecological recycling factory and photo hotspot. Through the exhibition and installations in the factory, visitors can have a good understanding about recycling and upcycling. Your epic journey to Taroko National Park starts from the Archway of Taroko Gorge. From the entry to Tianxiang, this 20km section of Central Cross-Island Highway winding through the steep marble cliffs and tunnels of the gorge will blow you away. Walk along Shakadang Trail, with the rivers gently flowing through the marble boulders as you meander along the trail in parallel. The turquoise blue water of the river is crystal clear that you can see the riverbed from above. Head through the tunnels of Swallow Grotto, where the potholes on the cliff surface were created by the ground water and the rapid stream of the river. In the past, they were the natural nesting location of swallows, hence the name. Walking through the tunnels, you will be amazed by the stunning views of the marble cliffs reaching up to the sky. Stop by Cihmu Bridge (Motherly Devotion Bridge), an H-shape hanging bridge built of marble and named by Late President Chiang Jing-guo. Take a short break at a recreational area and have lunch at one of the restaurants in the park. Head to Tunnel of Nine Turns, considered the most scenic section of Taroko Gorge. See the meander running through the deep and spectacular canyons from high above. Get a closer look at the faults and folds of the sheer marble cliffs, as well as the vegetation on the walls. Visit Eternal Spring Shrine, which commemorates the 225 military veterans who died during the construction of the Central Cross-Island Highway. End with a visual feast of the amazing Qingshui Cliff, one of the island's 'Eight Wonders'. Enjoy a sweeping view of a 21 kilometer stretch from the viewing platform before traveling back to Taipei Main Station.
