The road section that extends from the entrance to the Taroko Gorge to Tianhsiang is almost 20 kilometer. Along the route, we’ll see all sorts of different types of terrain- sheer cliffs, broken ridges and terraces. “ The Swallow Grove” and the “ Nine Curves Cave” are the most narrow sections of Taroko Gorge, and they are also the most popular sites to stop and take a photograph.
