Hualien County in the east of Taiwan is famous for the Taroko Gorge all the while. With the seemingly vertical cliffs, Taroko is of majestic magnitude. It is located at the east end of Central Cross-land Highway; and the scenery along the highway is also lovely. Taroko is at the meeting point of Hualien, Nantou, and Taichung County. Most residents here are Truku aborigines. 27 mountains are included in the area as well as many famous scenic spots, such as Yantzkou(Swallows' Grottos), Tunnel with Nine Turns, Tianshiang, and so on. Amongst them, Shenmi (mystery) Valley (Shakedang tributary), Liushuei, and Baiyang trails are very well known internationally. Taroko National Park Administration Headquarters is set up on November 28th 1975. It is in the north of Taroko. In order to introduce the information in relation to the Taroko National Park, the Headquarters has built the Visitors Center, Conference Room, Multimedia Room, restaurant, Ecology Exhibition, Truku Culture Relic Museum, and so forth.
Wenshan Hot Spring area is a rockfall potential area where some accidents took place, and thus only the north end of the bridge of the Wenshan trail is open, the other end is prohibited. For your safety concern, please do not try to enter the hot spring area. (Taroko National Park Tianxiang Management Station)
