taroko gorge Travel Guide :

Taroko Gorge

Understand

The Taroko Gorge is composed mainly of marble and granite.

Taroko Gorge

Get In

The nearest major city is Hualien.

Taroko Gorge

By bus

There are numerous bus tours visiting the gorge every weekend. And, while the buses are comfortable and air-conditioned, the tours tend to have a tight itinerary (including, of course, the obligatory stop at some local gift shop), leaving little time for extended hiking.

Taroko Gorge

By car

Renting a car in Hualien is definitely an option, though be very cautious; the roads through the gorge are extremely narrow with numerous bends. In addition, there are pedestrians, scooters, cars and massive tour buses all vying for the tight space.

Taroko Gorge

By scooter

The Gorge is not the best place for a first scooter experience. However, scooters are available to rent in Hualien. If you run low on fuel, the locals often stock a small supply that they'll part with for a miraculously uninflated price.

Taroko Gorge

By bicycle

For the truly adventurous, cycling is a wonderful way to traverse the park. However, before slipping on cycling pants and helmet, the road conditions referred to in the 'car' section (above) should be seriously considered. Traffic is much lighter on week days.

Taroko Gorge

Eat

Although western tourists are few and far between, this area is still rather a tourist trap. In spite of this, restaurants are in short supply.

There is the occasional souvenir shop and snack bar along the way, with slightly inflated prices.

There are also a couple of options in the Grand Formosa Hotel. The café there is reasonable for a snack and an air-conditioned break from the heat if you are so inclined, but prices are high. The restaurant proper is quite fancy and expensive.

Taroko Gorge

Sleep

The only accommodations within the gorge are at the five-star Grand Formosa Hotel, with prices to match.

Taroko Gorge

Stay Safe

In May, 2004, the Hualien area experienced an earthquake, killing two people in the Taroko Gorge area (due to rockfall). As a result, the mountain-side remains unstable in several locations. Be careful.

The river that winds its way through the gorge is extremely swift and dangerous in locations. .
