Taroko Gorge: Now & Then (Taiwan 2011, Day 11)

I’ve visited Taroko Gorge 8 years ago and this trip is a revisit to the place. I get to visit the Shakadang trail (砂卡砀步道) which was closed back then due to a landslide caused by an earthquake. However, the Nine Turns of Coiled Dragon (九曲幡龙) was closed this time due to falling rocks.

Nevertheless, the view is still as magnificent as before. Check out the photos of the place now and then! The photos of the past are in sepia.

Swallows live in holes in the rocks

Look at the layers of marble!

Can you see the side view of a red indian chief?

Mother Bridge (慈母桥)

Can you spot “a frog with its crown”?
