What You Can Expect

Taroko Gorge Full-Day Tour from Taipei

Taroko Gorge

Meet your guide in the lobby of your hotel at 6 am, and then transfer to the Taipei railway station. You will board an express train bound for Haulien on your own. During the approximately 2.5-hour journey, watch the scenery pass by.

Upon arrival in Hualien, board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for the trip through the Taroko Gorge in Taroko National Park, named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Asia. Set out on the 12.5-mile (20-km) section of highway that runs from Taroko to Tiansiang, winding through the steep marble cliffs and tunnels of the gorge. 

As you ride, admire views of the Liwu River, which cut through the marble to form the deep, narrow gorge over millions of years. In all, the coach trip will travel through an impressive 38 separate tunnels, ending up at the Eternal Spring Shine. Here, small temples have been built to honor those Taiwanese veterans who lost their lives in the construction of the tunnels. 

After passing through the gorge, stop for lunch at a local restaurant serving typical local fare. Before returning to Taipei by express train, make stops at the Hualien Stone Sculpture Park, Chi-Hsing Beach and a local marble factory. 

Your 13-hour adventure in Taroko National Park and the surrounds ends with drop-off at your hotel in Taipei.

If you're in Taipei or the Taroko Gorge area, I recommend taking this fantastic tour. The scenery was great and our guide, The Lion Lady Josephine was awesome as well. For me, the stop at the Marble Factory is unnecessary, but there are some really nice sculptures and items there. Overall, I recommend this tour.

Fantastic Tour! Josphine was energetic and informative! There's no way to cover this much ground if I came here by myself on train and public bus. Also great way to meet other travellers. The Taroko Gorge was stunningly beautiful. Highly recommend this tour.

Train trip for 3 hours to the gorge was very enjoyable—great scenery. Note pickup is very early ..5:20am, but worth it.
Test of day highly enjoyable.
Just as described.

Long but great day

The Lion Lady! What a beautiful tour and nice way to get out of Taipei and see other parts of Taiwan. The gorge is really amazing. The meal at the hotel is truly 5 star. Tons of food, and a traditional lazy susan shared experience. Only thing I didn't really like is the Marble factory - this is mostly for sales, although there is really nice stuff if you are looking to buy authentic jade.

A long, early trip to see the gorge, but worth it! Lunch was unexpectedly good. The guide, hailed the Queen of Taroko, made every step interesting. No need to fear not knowing the language—you are accompanied to the train by a guide, and met by another as soon as you arrive.
