Taroko Gorge Small-Group, Full-Day Tour from Hualien City
From US$89.00
Overview
Hike Taroko Gorge on a small-group walking tour of Taroko National Park from Hualien that explores some of the park’s most spectacular places, including Qingshui Cliff, Eternal Spring Shrine, and Swallow Grotto. Following easy, laid-back trails in Taroko National Park, you’ll experience an uncrowded side of Taroko Gorge, walking with a guide and group that’s limited to eight people to ensure a more personalized experience.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Hualien hotel and then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the trip to Taroko National Park. Your first sight of the national park will be the soaring rock at Qingshui Cliff, where you can get a glimpse of the traditional fishing culture that still thrives on Taiwan’s coast. From there, start hiking on the 1.9-mile (3-kilometer) Shakadang Trail, which follows a bright blue stream and a series of sedimentary rocks.

Continue to Eternal Spring Shrine and Swallow Grotto, among Taroko Gorge’s most beloved spots, donning a helmet for protection against falling rocks. When you’re ready for lunch, you’ll have a great chance to try the island’s traditional cuisine by purchasing a meal in a restaurant that’s owned by indigenous Taiwanese people.

The tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.

We did the trip by HSR to Tainan, and then regular train around the south end, through Fangliao, and back north to Hualien.
