Escape the city and get back to nature!

Situated in the east park of Taiwan, Taroko National Park is regarded as one of the top nature wonders in Asia, and famed for its stunning marble gorge.

In this tour you marvel at the most imaginative, awe-inspiring creations by the Mother Nature: the soaring marble cliffs, the natural grottoes, the clear blue water…

Meet the tour operator’s representative in the early morning, then take an express train bound for Hualien on your own. Don’t worry! Just sit back and enjoy this 3-hour journey, paradise is not far away.

Upon arrival in Hualien, your tour guide will greet you at the train station and take to you to the world-famous Taroko National Park. From the archway entry to Tianxiang, this 12.5-mile (20-km) section of Central Cross-Island Highway winding through the steep marble cliffs and tunnels of the gorge will your breath away.

First, take a walk along Shakadang Trail, where the crystal clear blue water of Liwu River is running beside you. This river has cut through the marble over millions of years, and created the deep, narrow gorge.

After that, stop by Eternal Spring Shrine, which commemorates the 225 personnel (military veterans) who died during the construction of the Central Cross-Island Highway. Due to road damage by typhoon, visitors can only enjoy an outside view from distance.
Before lunch, walk through the tunnel of Swallow Grotto, where you will enjoy a stunning view of the cliffs reaching up to the sky. The potholes on the cliff surface were created by the ground water and the rapid stream of the river. In the past, they were the natural nesting location of swallows; hence it got the name Swallow Grotto.

Lunch will be arranged in a restaurant in the park. After that, stroll around Tianxiang, where Cihmu Bridge (Motherly Devotion Bridge) is located, an H-Shape hanging bridge built of marble and named by late President Chiang Jing-guo, for a heart-touching story about a loving mother.

Before returning the train station for our train back to Taipei, stop by Hualien Stone Sculpture Park, a local marble factory, and the romantic Qixingtan, which is a pebble beach where the mountains meet the sea.

Your 12-hour adventure ends with drop-off at your hotel in Taipei.
