Welcome to the second installment about our recent trip to East Taiwan. There are a number of shots from the car, so please bear with us on this.
The skies were clear as we headed up to the area of Taroko Gorge.
Along the way there are some examples of aboriginal artwork.
This is the main gate to the Gorge.
A quick stop at the visitor center for a map, and we’re on our way.
This is typical topography of the gorge.
This road is pretty much constantly in repair dues to landslides.
A scenic overlook, were I did a live stream broadcast on Youtube (below)
In one area, there is a place where you can borrow a helmet for exploring where falling rocks are a hazard.
This place is called Swallow Grotto, because of all the cute birds that next here.
I tried to do another live stream from this place (below), but there was no network signal. So I just did a short recording in 4k.
The gorge is a lot smaller than people think so you can see the entire thing in 3 to 4 hours with stops for photos.
Gotta have a 7-11!
This temple was under construction, so no one was able to walk through it this time.
These QR codes can help you plan your visit.
There are men on this wall, repelling with climbing ropes and gear. Not sure what they are doing but it looks like they are brings up some kind of supplies in bags.
Finally, it was time to go to our next destination….
