Taroko National Park’s glories start with the cascading Liwu River between Mt. Hehuan and the north peark of Mt. Qilai. Two soaring peaks in the Central Mountain Range. The result of tectonic processes, the geology, and scenery, of Taroko National Park (TNP) is exquisite. Meandering rivers descend from the frigid to subtropical climes, supporting a rich ecological diversity and preserving traces of human habitation. TNP has found a foothold in this sublime yet variable, bold yet delicate, resilient yet fragile realm of mountains and rivers, due to thirty years of dedication to coexisting peacefully with nature, as well as a commitment to forging links with the traditional culture. Crashing tirelessly against the incredible rocks of the soaring peaks, the Liwu River is an inspiration to the hardworking individuals at the park headquarters, reminding us to be vigilant and never to forget out founding ideals.
