See one of the seven wonders of Asia, the Taroko Gorge, on a full-day tour led by a local guide. Take a train ride on your own to Hualien from Taipei to see this top attraction, known for its winding tunnels, sheer marble cliffs and the Liwu River that flows through it. Enjoy an included lunch at Mei Yuan restaurant of the Silks Place Taroko, stroll along Qixintan Beach and stop at the Hualien Stone Sculpture Park before returning to Taipei.
You'll be picked up from your Taipei hotel at 6am to travel by train on your own to Hualien. This full-day guided tour will take you to the Taroko Gorge, a 20-kilometer section of the highway that runs from Taroko to Tiansiang.
The stunning gorge is famous for its marble cliffs, deep, winding tunnels and the Liwu River, which flows through its craggy landscape. Travel through Swallows Grotto, where the section of the highway runs through tunnels carved into the gorge.
Then, see the Eternal Spring Shrine, one of the most photographed scenes around the gorge. These little temples were built to commemorate those who lost their lives in the construction of the central cross-island highway.
Afterward, break for lunch at a local restaurant. Appetites sated, continue to the Chi-Hsing Beach and Hualien Stone Sculpture Park and visit a marble factory before returning to Taipei by express train.
