If you are interested in hiking, best take your time and hike Taroko in 2 days. A couple of the longer, harder trails require the application of a permit from the park as well as the local police so plan ahead. Also some trails might...More

Better join the tour at train station at NT$1000 including lunch. Pick up and drop off to the hotel, trouble free. Take you to all popular attraction within a day. The driver very professional with tourist information.

It really is as good as they say. Much has been written here on Tripadvisor about what there is to do so I will just add a couple more tips. #1: Consider the hop-on hop-off bus ticket (called the Taroko Route) which retails for NT250...More

Taroko Gorge is simply gorgeous and one of the best gifts of nature that Taiwan has to offer. It is also possibly the easiest to access, considering that the rest of the mountains will need considerable hiking/climbing to truly appreciate their beauty. Don’t miss this,...More

We visited Taroko National Park recently and we were impressed by the sights there. The views of the gorge, rivers and bridges are absolutely wonderful! We thank Edison Tours (Taipei) for organising the trip!

Taroko Gorge is a pretty nice place to visit. However, I’d given it a higher rating if tourists are allowed to go down to the gorge. I remembered visiting the gorge when I visited taroko gorge 12 years ago.. guess the authorities barred visitors from...More

I’m stunned with the lake where 2 rivers meet. One is extremely clean water while the other is muddy water but they flow side by side which is so pretty. Lots of walking, so pls bring along water bottle. A must visit place in Hualien...More

I'm sure that either would be good. We hitch hiked, back in the 90's, which was great, but not for a family. Taking a car would give you the freedom to do it at your own pace. There are walks etc that you can do, which may... More
