Stunning scenery, debatably, on par with our own National Parks in the US. The trails are well maintained and easily accessible.

We had back luck with the weather as it was raining, but on the other side I think the colours of the rocks were enhanced, adding some beauty. Shakadang trail is rather easy and you just walk along the river. Geological layers are largely exposed...More

It's a long and leisurely stroll next to the river. Make sure you walk beyond the village for the most spectacular boulders in the river. Once you've seen these you can turn back as there's not much interesting beyond. Avoid 9 am to 12 noon...More

This is, in my opinion, the most impressive trail of Taroko Gorge. The water is blue green, and the scenery is amazingly beautiful. If you don’t have much time, you still should visit this place.

The walk is pleasant and very doable for all ages if you can manage the 100 odd steps to the bridge. Beautiful and breathtaking views all along the walk. You can see the geological Rick formations and blue waters through the Taroko National Park in...More

We accessed from the Taroko Visitor Center on foot. Free parking and short walk through tunnel. Loved the rope bridge and suspension bridge! Walk was great. Tons of spiders, butterflies, lizards and ecology to study. Walking (literally) IN the mountainside was very cool. This hike...More

We did half of the walking trail, which took us as far as the snack bars (you should get the aboriginal sausage, by the way. Just be sure to hold a napkin so that your hand holding the stick doesn't get greasy). The hike has...More

At the midpoint of the Trail, there are 5 huts selling wares, manned by the aborigines that stay in the Taroko National Park. The sausage sold is very yummy - there are aborigine spices in the recipe and it was so good that I had...More

We hiked this in the morning with no bad weather; honestly my favorite hike was Swallow's Grotto, an easy walk though caves along the gorge. This trail leads you to (or past) on Indigenous tribal area where they sell sausages on a stick. Since there...More

I would not advise it. It would be quite troublesome for her and for anyone who would have to help her. Sorry.

Hi, it will take you only 1 hour if you go to the pipe then come back. The scene is all the same so I think it's enough to explore.

I would suggest you go there around 8:00am to 8:30am as there are more travellers and also the place is not lighted. It can be dangerous as there is lossen rocks falling from the cliff on top.
