Taroko National Park @ Hualien (Part 1) 台湾行:花莲之太鲁阁惊险记(上集)

时间:10点
日期:十月二十五号二零一一年



离开了木瓜系,我们来到了充满灵气的太鲁阁国家公园。

有人说:“如果来到花莲,没去过太鲁阁相等于没来过花莲。”
我...是到了花莲才知道有太鲁阁的存在(更糟吧?)
不管是谁说的太鲁阁的美除了赞叹,还是赞叹~(见识过太鲁阁才知道“赞叹”两个字以后不能随便乱说)称它为“人间仙境”一点也不为过。而它的总面积⋯⋯几乎大得无法形容,能有多庞大呢?
920万公顷,或许你这样的数字很陌生。它的“体积”就算容纳了一个新加坡还绰绰有余。
(2011年新加坡的总面积约为778平方公里,一平方公里相当于1万公顷,也就是说大约有778万公顷。
也难怪我会不由自主的把自己想的像沙一样的渺小。

"The name, Taroko, means "magnificent and beautiful". Long ago a Truku tribesman saw the beauty of the azure Pacific when he walked out of the gorge. On seeing the magnificent scene, he cried "Taroko!"(Information sourced from Wiki)


If you ever visit Hualien and happen to be a nature enthusiast, there is one place you should not miss - Taroko National Park. 

Upon arriving Taroko National Park, its size amazed me and got my jaws dropping (which I believe will happen to many of you too!) To describe the reason behind my amazement - its Ginormous size is approximately 1 time bigger than Singapore. 

The beautiful sceneries in Taroko National Park is like no other on earth, which could easily sweep you of your feet. Talk about "LOVE" at first sight!































▲  弯曲狭窄的双行道路,经过一个接一个伸手见不到五指的隧道...
Without a torch light, walking inside this tunnel will be in complete darkness. Simultaneously, you have to be alert of passing cars.

▲  ...有如进入真实般的《侏罗纪公园》第一次看到恐龙;然后又被暴龙追的死去活来。两种极端的心情穿杂在一起,心跳加快的时候还分不清到底是被震撼还是震惊。
Experiencing a magnificent place such as this, is such a privilege. However, our reckless bus driver has also made this trip a terrifying experience for all on board.
