Taste the island's original flavors
Start your engines and drop in on Yilan, the place with rare activities on offer, from hot springs to whale-watching. With the Hsuehshan Tunnel -- the Snow Mountain Tunnel -- easing travel, you must go there and discover its splendors for yourself!
 
Taroko Gorge –A wonderland of natural beauty
Without a doubt one of the most spectacular natural areas in Taiwan must be the majestic Taroko Gorge.
 
Ilan's secret natural wonder: Yuemeikang Waterfall
It's still early (not even 9 am) when we arrive, yet the car park at the entrance to Wufengchi Waterfalls (五峰旗瀑布) is packed with cars this fine Saturday morning in June, and we're forced to find an empty roadside place to leave the car.
 
Sea of cloud, mountain and forest views seen at Yakou Tunnel
The Yakou Tunnel (啞口隧道) is the middle point of the Southern Cross-Island Highway and it is also the highest point of the highway at 2,722 meters above sea level.
 
Bai-Yu Waterfall: surprise detour in Chihpen Valley
There is a small road just past the large resorts at the mouth of the Chihpen (知本) Valley, located where the road begins to climb towards the deeper hot springs and the national forest park.
 
Taimali Beach: look but don't swim
You can look, but you can't touch. Sounds like advice you might hear regarding certain beautiful girls in Taiwan. However, when in Taimali (太麻里), Taitung (台東) County, this wisdom applies to an amazing stretch of beach along the coastal highway.
 
Jhuilu Old Trail: A spectacular new viewpoint on Taroko Gorge
The trail is less than a meter wide and five hundred meters long, but as our group gingerly follows the narrow strip, suspended halfway up the sheer face of Taroko Gorge's highest cliff face, I think the feeling is unanimous that this is probably the most spectacular, easily accessible hike in Taiwan.
 
Chihben River Gorge retains its beauty
I almost didn't want to go back to this valley, that's how much I love it. Between 2000-2004, I river-traced and camped in this gorge twelve times.
