Embark on a daylong adventure to the east coast of Taiwan and into a land that has entirely escaped the greedy hands of progress. Taroko National Park is a geological wonder highlighted by the sheer cliffs and mysterious depths of Taroko Gorge. Stand at Swallow’s Grotto for a panoramic perspective of jagged marble walls pitted with “swallow holes”. See if you can make out the features of Indian Head Rock, a formation said to resemble a Native American chief. Visit the Eternal Spring Shine, erected in honor of brave military veterans who died carving the Central Cross-Island Highway out of the gorge’s sheer rock walls. Learn why tradition dictates one light a cigarette in remembrance at the shrine, instead of incense or candles. The journey continues through the Tunnel of Nine Turns. Hold your breath as sections open to plummeting drops and stretches so narrow the sky becomes invisible.
Discover a landscape virtually untouched by man on this ecological adventure into Taiwan’s Taroko Gorge.
Stand at Swallow’s Grotto for sweeping views of this Taiwanese National Parkland, with its sheer cliffs and dense flora and fauna.
Learn about the Central Cross-Island Highway, an engineering feat so monumental and perilous that 212 lives were lost in its construction.
