Full description
One of Asia’s 7 wonders, Taroko Gorge is a must-see for visitors to Taipei. The stunning Gorge features marble cliffs, deep-winding tunnels, and the enchanting Liwu River flowing through the landscape. Your excursion begins from Taipei where you'll travel by train to Hualien. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll be taken on a drive along a 12-mile stretch of highway built into the mesmerizing marble cliffs that rise high above the rushing Liwu River. There are spectacular views of the marble walls and the winding river that runs through the deep Taroko Gorge. Your route will take you through a total of 38 tunnels including the Swallows Grotto, the Shakadang Trail, and the Marble Bridge of Motherly Devotion. Swallow Caves is the name of a steep wall having thousands of small pockets where swallows used to nest.  Shakadang means "molar" in Taroko's language, the trail is near the park headquarters to the west. Through the tunnel of Shakadang about 1km from the headquarters, there is a Shakadang bridge connected to it.  Other popular stops you’ll see on the tour include the Eternal Spring Shrine and the scenic town of Tienhsiang. After lunch you’ll visit Chi Hsing Beach and Stone Sculptural Park, return to Taipei at the end of the afternoon.

The time I travelled was during outbreak of Coronavirus. Even though there were only 2 persons left for the tour, the tour still operated. This is very impressive. Overall I like the scenary of Taroko very much. Even though we had 15 minutes at Shakadang trail, but we got enough time for other stops.

I really enjoyed my day but I did not expect the journey involved. It was not a high speed train which we had in the morning and the train too 3 hours and coming back was faster but still 2.5 hours so a long day on trains. The gorge itself was fairly amazing and the lunch was really good. The guide we nice.

Interesting day trip to visit Taroko easily

A correct way to visit the Taroko canyon from Taipei without complicating your life. If you also agree with other interesting and friendly travelers, as was my case, the experience is enjoyed more. Very good food in a quality hotel. There is plenty of visit to the market-factory for tourists of jade and other jewelry. It is the only thing that prevents giving the maximum note to the visit and negatively balks the experience. Seriously, eliminating it would be beneficial for the agency. The pick-up at the punctual hotel and the guides in Taipei and the area are correct and pleasant.
