Why Great Taroko Gorge 2 days tour is special ?

The Great Taroko Gorge

Taroko gorge is an impressive 19km long canyon. It's famous for its spectacular mountains and marble canyons. Cliffs and canyons stretch along the Liwu River. Such special geography has also bred special flora and fauna in this area. Some people get immense satisfaction just touring the park in a bus, car or taxi, while taking in the majestic scenery. For the more active, there are a few hiking trails and great water spots like to go swimming and river tracing, here is heaven

Shakadang Trail

Shakagang Trail, also known as "mysterious valley trail", is built along a river cliff. Travellers can easily observe the folds in rocks and the natural ecosystem beside the river shore. After passing a 3D cabin, the trail will lead visitors to the old Datong tribal village - a perennial favorite for our visitor

Wind of Pacific Ocean - Seven Star Bay (Qixingtan)

At the northeast of Hualien City, the moon-shaped Seven Star Bay has a pebble beach that extends along the shore for several kilometers. You don't need to fully plan what to do here since what you do can be quite spontaneous, which includes cycling, picnicking, taking a long walk, enjoying the geological sights. If you come at the right time of morning, you may see some fishermen working along the shore.

Surrounding by mountains - The Carps Lake
