Taiwan’s Natural Wonder: The Taroko Gorge

The Taroko Gorge is a 19 km long canyon located in Taroko National Park, one of Taiwan’s eight national parks. Most visitors either ride a bike or scooter to visit the most attractive areas of the gorge. However, we decided to spend a day walking along the paved road and hiking trails to see all the highlights of this magnificent natural wonder.

The main hiking trail we followed was called the Shakadang Trail. It was one of the most beautiful parts of the gorge. The scenic views of white rocks within the clear turquoise waters and the ubiquitous green trees were breathtakingly gorgeous.

Along the way, we also saw this huge spider and tiny frog!

We really enjoyed our day at Taroko Gorge. But, after walking all day, we were fairly exhausted by the end of our trip.
