A trip to Taiwan 1: Taroko National Park


Eternal Spring Shrine

This time, I introduce to you the most impressive natural landscape in Taiwan.

That day, when we were going into Taroko National Park, unluckily it began to rain.

However, rain and muddy stream were making beauty further conspicuous.

 

We traveled Taiwan for five days in early December 2011.

Taiwan is an island of 400 km from south to north, and 140 km from east to west.

It belongs to the Subtropical Zone and the Torrid Zone.

It is on the ocean 140 km away from China continent.

The central part is a band of mountains higher than 3000 m.

 

 

今回、台湾旅行で最も感動した自然景観を紹介します。

この日は、あいにく山間に入る頃から雨が降り出しました。

しかし雨と濁流がいっそう美しさを際立たせてくれました。

 

私は2011年12月初旬の5日間、台湾を旅行しました。

台湾は、亜熱帯と熱帯に属する南北400km、東西140kmの島です。

中国大陸から140km離れた太平洋上にあります。

その中央部は3000mを越える山脈が連なっています。

Taroko National Park is near Hualien city of the Taiwan east seashore.

There was only a seaway until this road was made, and the development of this area had been left behind.

The road along this canyon is one of a few roads that cross Taiwan.

This highway construction was severe.

 

太魯閣峡谷は台湾東側の都市花蓮の近くにあります。

この道路が出来るまでは航路しかなく、この地域の発展は遅れていました。

この峡谷沿いの東西横貫道路は台湾を横断する数少ない道の一つです。

この道路建設は苛酷を究めました。

When we finished the sightseeing of Taroko National Park, rain stopped completely.

I took a photograph from the train that goes to Taipei from Hualien.

    I love your photos, just love them. You truly make me want to see Taiwan. It seems preserved. Blessed country. I can’t believe that war ever happened. God bless this beautiful country, these people.

    Really enjoyed this – thank you🙂

    • Taiwan had an unhappy experience between Japan in the past. However, now, fortunately, it seems that the people of Taiwan welcome Japanese. I appreciate it.

  4. These mountains are so beautiful.
    Thanks for taking me (virtually) to Taiwan. I have never been there before.
