Taroko National Park, in my opinion is the most scenic area in Taiwan; definitely one of the most scenic in the world. Over many years the Liwu river has cut a deep gorge through the spine of Taiwan’s central ridge of mountains. The Taiwanese cut, tunneled, bridged a spectacular cross country “highway” using this gorge producing one of the scenic wonders of the world. 226 men died in the process. A typhoon closed off the road several years ago and it has reopened but the path has been altered.
