Taroko National Park is located in the east of Taiwan. It covers Hualien County, Taichung City, and Nantou County. Unquestionable that this is one of the most beautiful places in Taiwan, the natural landscape breathtaking.
Recommend to join a tour if you are the first time visitor! Scooter is another good option to navigate the park. Special note on the road can be narrow and curvy, and vehicles like shuttle buses are traveling on both sides. Pay extra attention to the road condition.
The 19-km long Taroko Gorge with the waterfalls and tunnels, it is the most visited site in the National Park. The marble rock was carved out by the Liwu River, the area around the Swallow Grotto Trail, and the Tunnel of Nine Turns, where the cliffs on both sides rose several hundred meters almost vertically.
There are lots to see and do in Taroko National park and if you are into nature, several hiking trails are available.
Our trip was not a “one-day-fit-all” plan, and my older daughter was around one year old. We planned to enjoy nature and relax without trying to rush through all the must-do list.
We stayed at Silks Place Resort, a very peaceful hotel. The facilities are excellent, friendly staff,and the atmosphere is relaxing.
The highlight of this hotel I would say its the rooftop. You can enjoy the spectacular landscape using the pool, hot sauna, or the lounge area!
Silks Place Toroko Resort is also one of the top 10 kid-friendly hotels in Taiwan; the hotel organizes many children activities, including aboriginal dancing performance and playground.
