Outside Taipei

The beautiful county of Yilan is on the Northeast coast of Taiwan. The name Yilan is attributed to the Kavalan aborigine tribe, who originally inhabited this mountainous terrain, bordered by the brilliantly navy Pacific Ocean. Yilan holds the allure of native Taiwanese history, captivating natural scenery and delicious local delicacies, found only on this part of the island.

There are a number of ways to enjoy the fresh outdoor air in Yilan. Wufengchi Waterfall (which translates to five humps) is one of the most frequented sites of Yilan. The scenic walk leads to a three waterfalls streaming between five mountains. Tofu Rock Beach is another famous outdoor attraction.
