Taroko Gorge is one of Taiwan's greatest treasures. There's over 10 miles of towering marble and granite walls here. The deep valleys are carved out by 1000s of years of erosion from the strikingly turquoise-cast Liwu river. If the natural scenery weren't enough, there's the occasional Pagoda to give you the feeling you're you're looking at a classical Chinese painting. It's definitely something you want to experience in person; I found it really hard to capture the feeling in photographs. The older locals call it the "mysterious valley"... Maybe there's something special here that you can't capture with a camera? ;-)
