Meet a driver at your Hualien hotel and then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the trip to Taroko National Park. Your first sight of the national park will be the soaring rock at Qingshui Cliff, where you can get a glimpse of the traditional fishing culture that still thrives on Taiwan’s coast. From there, start hiking on the 1.9-mile (3-kilometer) Shakadang Trail, which follows a bright blue stream and a series of sedimentary rocks.

Continue to Eternal Spring Shrine and Swallow Grotto, among Taroko Gorge’s most beloved spots, donning a helmet for protection against falling rocks. When you’re ready for lunch, you’ll have a great chance to try the island’s traditional cuisine by purchasing a meal in a restaurant that’s owned by indigenous Taiwanese people.

The tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.

Taroko Gorge

Our guide, Alicia, gave us a full tour with clear and complete explanations, not only on the Taroko Gorge itself but also more generally on Taiwan. We spent a wonderful day with a few steps along the Pacific Ocean as a final bonus.
