Hualien

Hualien is located on the mountainous eastern coast of Taiwan. For those who looking for nice scenery with fresh air, this is the place I would recommend.

Highlight?

Taroko Gorge (太鲁阁)


The Park

Taroko Gorge is one of the famous attraction place to visit. During our way to the gorge, we can see certain areas of the road collapsed & it is still under maintenance. The road is quite narrow though. Although it is a bit scary, but trust me, it worth a visit, the scenery there was just awesome!

Here are some pictures taken from The park

This helmet is a must in this area as the stone will drop anytime. We talking about the small one, not the big one. Haha

Can you spot a fish swimming up stream?
