Taroko Gorge Update 2024

May 2024: Due to the Taiwan earthquake of April 3, 2024, the Eastern part of Taroko Gorge National Park is closed until further notice. Currently, only the upper mountain region of the park including Hehuanshan Mountain is open, but this is not the “gorge” portion where all the primary attractions are.

The Taiwan government plans to reopen additional parts of Taroko Gorge National Park, including the famous Eternal Springs Shrine, in July 2024.

We will keep you updated here as things reopen! For now, check out our other amazing tours and experiences in Hualien below.

“An amazing experience with an experienced guide”

“Our friendly guide gave us a unique insight into the history and wildlife of the park. Things we would have been oblivious to without his guidance and experience. So thankful that we found Island Life and I’d definitely advise booking with them for an unforgettable experience”
