Taroko Gorge Small-Group, Full-Day Tour from Hualien City
From $66.00
Hike Taroko Gorge on a small-group walking tour of Taroko National Park from Hualien that explores some of the park’s most spectacular places, including Qingshui Cliff, Eternal Spring Shrine, and Swallow Grotto. Following easy, laid-back trails in Taroko National Park, you’ll experience an uncrowded side of Taroko Gorge, walking with a guide and group that’s limited to eight people to ensure a more personalized experience.
What to Expect
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.

Great views and walk

Our tour guide was William Ho. He was friendly and spoke English well. Swallow grotto was closed so he adjusted the itinerary and also timed our stops to limit waiting time at traffic control. The Shakadang hiking trial was beautiful and we had local sausage...More
