... the Yangtze River Three Gorges and so Taroko for me was just a stop en route to Taipei in our original non-D&V affected itinerary. We had planned to do a trip from Kenting to Alishan Mountain range, followed by Sun Moon Lake and then Taroko finishing up in Taipei.

Some 30,000 years ago some of the aborigine people lived in those caves (ChangPin people). We made multiple stops to enjoy the gorgeous mountains and cliffs and I couldn't help but want more photos, only to realize later that outside the moment they all look ...
