Often referred to as Taiwain's Grand Canyon, Taroko Gorge is the crown jewel of Taroko National Park.
Surrounded by an 18 km marble wall, it is laced with breathtaking trails, rich with visually stunning geological features, and surrounded by imposing mountains. With a road traveling directly through the gorge, visitors can experience the local scenery by car, during the day or at night.
Carved out by the strong and rushing currents of the river, this low-lying region is known for its cool gusts of air and secret hot springs. Surrounded by thick forest on every side, this natural wonder is a must-see attraction when visiting the park. There are also nearby pagodas and temples that locals and tourists can appreciate as well.Places nearby:
