Taroko in a Day is specifically designed for visitors wanting to optimize their time at Taiwan's must-see attractions. A convenient train ride assisted by MyTaiwanTour staff will take you from Taipei to Taiwan's most iconic, scenic spots featuring the largest marble canyon in the world. As you wind your way through the gorge's scenic road you'll learn the area's history, legends and more before stopping for a brief hike along Shakadang trail. After lunch, you'll spend the afternoon visiting Swallow Grotto, Lushui Trail and Buluowan, three scenic areas offering different vantage points of the raging river below and majestic cliffs above.
