Spectacular views and landscapes. The unlimited use of the bus is totally worth it. Start your day early so you can go around. This will be a whole days trip because of its massiveness! Love this place! ❤️

You have to visit to understand the true meaning of mother nature. There are many tunnels to walk through even you have private taxi so make sure that you wear good sneakers, towels and enough water.

I guess that july is not the best time to visit Taroko Gorge. Very little water in the riverbed. Not much else to see either except some very nice BIG spiders sitting and waiting in their webs. I got some nice photos of clouds passing...More

The Taroko National Park provides fantastic scenery of unspoilt rivers, dramatic rock formations and some good engineering too. However, the main routes are full of day-trippers so it is not a 'back to nature' kind of experience. We did a private tour with a driver...More
