Private Tour: Taroko Gorge Day Trip from Taipei - Taipei, Taiwan

About This Tour

Duration: 13 hours
Location: Taipei, Taiwan
Product Code: 30711A_P

Activity Details

View the natural and cultural highlights of Taroko Gorge, one of the Seven Wonders of Asia, on a private day trip from Taipei. Receive the expertise of a private guide who has insider knowledge of Taroko National Park and its scenic spots. You’ll have amazing views of the marble cliffs and surrounding features like Hualien Stone Sculptural Park and Eternal Spring Shrine, plus a walk around Tienhsiang and the scenic Lushui Trail.

Meet your private local guide upon pickup from your Taipei city hotel in the early morning and proceed to the Taipei Station by private car. From Taipei Station, take the 2-hour express train to Hualien, the east side of Taiwan. Your guide will transfer you to Taroko Gorge Gateway to begin your private tour of this spectacular region.

Gaze with awe at the sheer marble cliffs of this remarkable gorge and the Liwu River that flows through its rocky landscape. Visit the Eternal Spring Shrine, one of the most photographed scenes around the gorge, where small temples were built to memorialize those who lost their lives in the construction of the central cross-island highway. Then stop for lunch at Leader Village Taroko, a sublime mountain hideaway serving aboriginal-inspired dishes.

After lunch, transfer to Tienhsiang and stroll around the small village. Check out the Tienhsiang Lodge and nearby amenities as you walk along shaded walkways and take in the photo-worthy landscape. Catch sight of Hsiangte Temple and its pagoda, situated on a hilltop and reached by a suspension bridge over the Liwu River.

Next, your guide will accompany you onto the scenic Lushui Trail, an easy hiking trail that includes magnificent views of Taroko Gorge and the Liwu River below. Follow the trail as you climb uphill at a mild pace, then cross a suspension bridge before making your way onto an exposed cliff – wide enough for two people – with safety railings along the entire cliff segment.

When you’ve returned to your car, continue to Chi Hsing Beach for a stroll. Finally, visit the Hualien Stone Sculptural Park and a marble factory before your guide returns you to Taipei by express train. Upon arrival in Taipei, you'll be transferred to your hotel in Taipei by private car before the tour is concluded.
