And this was the ultimate highlight of our trip. One could never go wrong with some nature tripping and just basking in all its glory. A do-it-yourself tour was an option but we opted to hire a tour guide for this. With our nature gear on, it’s time to trek Taroko National Park.:)

Since we were staying in Taipei, we had to go there at a very early time. And from time Taipei, one could go there by train. We purchased ours online (via this website) days ahead to ensure we got the earliest train going to Hualien. A day before our trip, we had it exchanged at Taipei Main Station. Total cost was 780 NTD (440 from Taipei to Hualien and 340 from Hualien to Taipei). Fee varies on the train type.
