Covering over 920 square kilometers in the northern section of the Central Mountain Range, Taroko National Park is a Taiwan destination for nature lovers. Located just northeast of the island’s midpoint, Taroko National Park is ‘carved’ through the middle by the Liwu River, a natural wonder that created the breathtaking Taroko Gorge. Visitors will appreciate Swallow Grotto, Tunnel of Nine Turns, and Taroko Gorge, as well as the many waterfalls to be found throughout the park, with the trails of Shakadang, Baiyang, Changchun, and Lushui-Wenshan. Appreciate the park’s beauty from the Zhuilu Suspension Bridge and gain insights into local history and culture at the Eternal Spring Shrine, a memorial to people who died during the construction of the Central Cross-Island Highway. The thoughtfully positioned Changuang Temple, is nestled within the deep green of surrounding trees and foliage and resting over the waterfall that cascades from it.
