The flagship feature of the Taroko National Park, the Taroko Gorge is a dramatic 19km gorge made mainly of marble. Also known as ‘The Marble Gorge’, Taroko is a popular place for both domestic and foreign tourists. Some simply view the scenery from a bus or car while others set foot on the many hiking trails. The paths weave their way past waterfalls, through tunnels in the rock and across suspension bridges. Once out in the lush countryside of the park, it’s possible to spot some of the area’s wildlife such as Formosan macaques, Formosan Sambar Deer, flying squirrels and possibly even Formosan black bear and Formosan wild boar.
