Hualien (花蓮) Shore Excursion – Taroko Gorge Day Tour (Private Tour)
Trust me when I say this: visiting Hualien, the Taroko National Park is definitely the highlight that you cannot miss. Within the limited time frame, we will let you fully appreciate the fine art created by the hands of Mother Nature—the magnificent Taroko Gorge.
Taroko National Park is situated in the eastern Taiwan. This park features high mountains and sheer gorges with many natural wonders. The varied mountain peaks, numerous waterfalls, diverse plant forms and animal life thrive together with the indigenous Taroko people.
Taroko National Park – Great Taroko Gorge
The word “Taroko” means “human being” in the Taroko language of the local Taroko indigenous tribe. Taroko Gorge is an impressive 19km long canyon famous for its spectacular mountains and marble cliffs that stretch along the Liwu River. Such special geography has also bred special flora and fauna in this area. For the more active travelers, there are a few hiking trails with great view and great water areas to go swimming and river tracing.
Aboriginal Specialty – Savor the Origin of Taiwan
Aboriginal specialty includes dishes that utilize the mountain vegetables and fresh seafood of the region. Learn about the many aboriginal cultures that comprise nearly one third of Hualien County’s population.
Eternal Spring Shrine – Changchun Shrine
Eternal Spring Shrine is a landmark and a memorial shrine complex in Taroko National Park. It is one of the major picturesque points of the park, with the view of the mountains and the waterfall, and one of the main memorials for veterans.

Swallow Grotto is an obvious stopover for visitors to appreciate the marvel of Taroko Gorge. The Grotto trail is interspersed with tunnels and overlooks the narrowest portion of Taroko Gorge where the river is most rapid.
