... amazingly simple highly worth it. With a number of strategic stop offs [ahem] at 7/11s along the way, and some opportunities for some scenic pictures we finally rolled up to Hualien (the major city near Taroko Gorge) at around 5pm.

We travelled across miles and miles of beautiful coastline, neighbouring the mountains, all barely touched by man (just basically made safe to walk around), in all its natural beauty. Our first stop was Xiao Yeliou (Small Yeliou). This coastal nature preservation area is adjacent to eroded limestone rocks...
