Description

Discover the striking natural beauty of Taiwan with a guided day excursion to Taroko National Park. Admire views from the coastal Qingshui Cliff and explore lush trails that wind through the pristine park. Your day ends with a stroll through the tempting Dongdamen night market in Hualien City.

At Taipei Songshan Airport, catch a flight out to Hualien and meet your guide upon touchdown. A drive takes you out to Taroko National Park, a lush area of marble-walled canyons and rugged mountains that rises from Taiwan's eastern coast. Your guide leads you first to Qingshui Cliff, where the mountains meet the sea. From atop the cliff, gaze out at the vibrant colors of the Pacific Ocean and see waves crashing against the rocks below. Next, stop by the visitor center to learn about the formation and significance of the Taroko Gorge for which the park was named.

After a break for lunch, make the trek to Swallow Grotto, where you can get intimate views of the Liwu River carving through the limestone Taroko Gorge. The cave-dotted walls on either side of the gorge are filled with swallow nests, lending the grotto its name. From there, follow your guide on the Lushui Trail to Buluowan, a hilltop terrace that offers a breathtaking look over the majestic gorge.

Before your day comes to an end, visit Hualien City and stop by the Dongdamen night market. Wander through tempting food stalls and grab a bite if you wish before making for the airport and flying back to Taipei.
