After celebrating Christmas in Hong Kong, we flew over to celebrate the New Year in Taiwan. We first arrived at the Taipei airport where we took a bus to Hualien train station. The bus and train ride were interesting to say the least. There were so many motorbikes and betel nut stands with blinking green lights and young women in them selling betel …

The rock in Taroko gorge is mainly marble, and the visiting points all have pretty names, as is the Chinese style of naming things - Eternal Spring Shrine, Swallow Grotto, and the Tunnel of Nine Turns.

Stopped and got my police permit, hiked 500m of the Shakadang trail that was open, Jhuilu Old trail, Swallow Grotto, then to the Waterfall curtain/Baiyang Waterfall trail... returning with stops at the status and temple at Tienhsiang plateau, pavillion at Cimu Bridge, Yeli pavillion, and Eternal Springs shrine.
Rest day and organizing my vietnam vist and my next move... was thinking Sheipa national park to climb Pintian, but the hostel there is full for the taiwan birthday national holiday and a taiwanese guy said the climb is not so special, so will skip it and head back to Taipei. Asked the hostel girl where I could find a buffet, and there was one about 15min away, so ate there two times for a 80NT buffet of 3 vegetables plus rice and a pork chop.
rented a scooter for $500, will get it for $300 as a second day for Taroko.
Today took it over the Sapadong to do a river trace for a couple of hours!
Then rode south to Liyu Lake, the old historic village of Lintianshan, then over to ride the quiet 193 Country road back to Hualien to complete the loop... probably my favorite road yet.
