Top 10: Taroko National Park (太鲁阁国家公园)
Located along the eastern coast of Taiwan, Taroko National Park covers parts of Taichung City, Nantou County and Hualien County. Named after Taroko Gorge, the park features soaring peaks, steep cliffs, amazing valleys, babbling streams and wonderful waterfalls. The most famous bit of the Taroko Gorge is called the Tunnel of Nine Turns. It is a walking-only path that runs parallel to the main road, and features some of the most dramatic scenery in the entire valley. When the whole island is sweltering in the summer heat, Taroko Park is an ideal place to take a deep, cool breath and enjoy the season at its best.
Best time to visit: July and August
