Day 3 TAIPEI / TAROKO GORGE (B)
We will leave the capital today and begin with a drive down the stunning east coast, where towering cliffs meet the ocean before turning inland to spend a full day in geologically stunning Taroko National Park. Best known for being the home of visually stunning Taroko Gorge, the park is also a treasure trove of rivers and waterfalls, cliffs and trails, tunnels and temples. We’ll hike, sightsee, and explore the gorge, perhaps even seeing some of the local monkeys who call the area home before retiring our night at a 4-star hotel.

Accommodation: Taroko Liiko Hotel or similar

Day 4 TAROKO GORGE / SUN MOON LAKE (B/D)
After breakfast in the hotel, we’ll head higher still, across the island’s mountainous spine. While the drive is long, we’ll take many breaks for sightseeing, photography, and soaking in panoramic views. We’ll stop to touch the trunk of the Bilu sacred tree, said to date back to biblical times. After reaching the top, we’ll descend into the valley, reaching magical Sun Moon Lake, the island’s largest and most pristine body of water. Once at the lake, we’ll relax and unwind with a traditional tribal meal before checking into a 3-star hotel with a view of the lake.

Accommodation: Lealea Garden Hotel or similar

Day 5 SUN MOON LAKE (B)
Yesterday was about travel, so today is about staying put and exploring Sun Moon Lake to the fullest. We’ll travel across the lake on a pleasure boat, hike through a magnificent grove of climbing bamboo, and visit the serene Xuanguang temple, a major pilgrimage site for followers of the Buddhist faith. We’ll have great meals, and do a cycling trip around the lake (listed as one of the top ten cycling routes in the world by CNN Travel) before heading back to the hotel.
