It was a day trip from Taipei. We took a morning train from Taipei which departs at 7.20am. It took 2 hour to get to Hualien. The electric train ride was comfortable. The scenery especially of the seaside along the way was beautiful. Then, another hour by bus from Hualien train station to theTarako National Park.
The national park was beautiful with deep gorges. But since we had to return to Taipei on the same day, we didn't get to spend enough time at the park to truly enjoy its beauty. Just stopping by at a few spots to snap some pictures which I attached here. To appreciate the beauty, you need to spend some time walking down the trails especially the ones near the temple with the water falls. Bring a pair of good walking shoes.

A true gem in Taiwan. We spent an entire day there on a private tour and were overwhelmed by the natural beauty of it all. Well worth the time.

“Marvelous Gorge”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Beautiful gorges, dramatic cliffs plunging from 500m to the sea level. If you are prone to allergic reaction from insect bites, wear long sleeves and pants and apply insect repellent.

“A place to visit when you are in Hualien”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Hire a cab for a day tour around Taroko National Park. Had a few stops around the main attraction spot. Taroko National Park is a huge place. As I hired a cab for the tour, there was a limited time i could trek the path. The path is believe to be able for few hours of trekking. The place has beautiful greens and the sound of the river is awesome. Had lunch at the halfway point up, food price is decent, but the food does have the taste of the local taroko tride. It might not be of suitable taste for majority. Overall experience was great.

“Probably all been said”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

We use the local day rider bus, which to be honest was a little frustrating, on reflection a motor scooter would be the best tool for the job. Regardless of that the park is all they say and more, nothing quite like it. A must see!
