I was looking forward to this the most during our holiday in Taiwan. The last time I was here we got there when it was almost dusk so didn’t get to see much. Also this time I’ve done a bit of research and knew which spots in the national park that I wanted to go to. My long-suffering family put up with my antics yet again for another day, with lots of random stops and hikes up lots of steps. My wife and parents definitely deserve a medal each. So did the taxi driver that took us around for the day, actually.
This one is taken on the bridge just outside of Buluowan Trail.
The next few are taken on the Swallow Grotto Trail walking towards the Jinheng Bridge (named after an engineer that perished during the construction of the bridge). Check out the awesome pool in the middle of the steep cliff face!
This next one is the Xiangde Temple Pagoda near Tianxiang.
The following were at the Cimu Bridge. You can see the cool pavilion on top of what the call the Frog Head.
Finally the Changchun (Eternal Spring) Shrine that is dedicated to the workers that lost their lives when building the roads and tunnels in Taroko.
