Taroko Gorge, breath-taking view of the gorge of Liwu river


*The Taroko Gorge is composed mainly of metamorphic 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.
