When you take a trip on the Central Cross-Island Highway,
you will find exquisite uncanny craftwork created
The geological formation of Taroko Gorge is made of
thick marble rock. The gorge was shaped through years
of vertical erosion by Liwu River and the earth crust
In Taroko Gorge, most people only take pictures on

amplify through your mouth.
This is not as easy as I thought! Come and try it
