First, this place is absolutely beautiful! It would be SO great for a picture if there weren't thousands of Chinese tourists pouring out of a backed-up line of tour buses and smoking up the tunnel leading to it and throwing their cigarette butts all over the place. I don't know why the park allows this much unregulated traffic. How are... More

The scenery is fantastic but is it worth the tiring long distance many hours of time-consuming journey for just a brief 20 minutes moment to watch the views. The overwhelmng hordes of crowds, 95% comprises of Chinese National tourists made it so difficult to even walked from our bus to the pavilions for viewing & taking photos. Just looking at... More

Very beautiful scenery but unfortunately also very popular with bus tours. Avoid the weekend if you can

It would be great if you want to getaway from the crowd and have some alone time. Quiet and serene with a great landscape view.

We climbed up to the bell tower and down to the eternal spring shrine. It was so amazing to experience the steps built ages ago on the cliff and how it could last till today. the spring shrine is a memorial to those who built the area.

The tourist shuttle dropped me at the bridge with unbearable bus loads and flag wielding guides. Perhaps it was because it was 3pm. If you walk up the steps to a bell tower there are no more people and a beautiful view. Keep walking and reach the suspension bridge and temple. It's about 2km along the road back to park... More

Shrine to the men who died building the road through the mountains. Nice that thye are remembered in this way. Walk across the bridge and up to the shrine and waterfall. Look out for birds, butterflies and frogs.

Our driver dropped us off near Changuang Temple where we first crossed the suspension bridge then made our way down to the Bell Tower, Taroko Tower, Guanyin Cave, and lastly ended at the Eternal Spring Shrine. Going down was a lot easier than going up so if you have a driver (who can meet you at the bottom) ask to... More

This is one of the destinations in the spectacular Taroko National Park Taiwan. Set amidst craggy forested mountains near the junction of Liwu and Laosi rivers this beautiful place is dedicated to workers killed during road construction into the gorge. A winding walking path from a parking area leads about a kilometre to gloriously decorated buildings in traditional temple design.... More
