Breath-taking view of the Gorge of Liwu river

The Taroko Gorge is composed mainly of metomorphic rocks, such as granite, marble and gneiss and it is shaped by mighty Liwu river. The name, Taroko, means "majestic and brilliant" in the language of Truku, the aboriginal tribe residing in the area. Due to its vantage point controlling trading and strategic hub, Taroko possesses numerous historic sites.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was an incredible day tour from near the international airport to the magnificent Taroko Gorge. Tom was an extraordinary guide and I will definitely use him when I return to Taiwan - and based in large part on his great tour - and his enthusiasm for other places on his home island that he described but that I did not have time to see - I'll be back.
