Taiwan: Taroko National Park (Part 2)

When we visited Taiwan we took the train from Taipei to Hualien just to see the beautiful Taroko National Park. We stayed at Just Sleep and signed up for a half day tour to explore the area. Along the way we made stops at Cingshuei Cliffs, Shakadang Trail, Cimu Bridge, Taroko Terrace, Jiuqudong (Tunnel of Nine Turns) Trail and lastly the Changchun (Eternal Spring) Shrine. If you missed the first part, click here.  Below you will see pictures of the Tunnel of Nine Turns, the Eternal Spring Shrine and the National Park Entrance.








^^ I thought we weren’t going to make it here because our tour was ending but i’m soo glad we did! ^^
^^ Oh how i love a pretty asian gate! ^^^^ It’s funny that the last thing we saw was the entrance, but i loved how these pics turned out ^^

  • I didn't know the tunnel of nine turns was open again! it's been closed ever since I've been in Taiwan – was under construction during my last Taroko trip in October. hopefully the recent quakes didn't damage it again and I'll get a chance to see it next time 🙂
