Swallow Grotto of Taroko Gorge


Our third stop is here known as Swallow Grotto. We have to wear helmets for precaution. The suspension hanging bridge above is very long, but we're not allowed to cross it. According to the tourist guide, people wants to cross the bridge has to ask permission to the government first. They're only allowing 40 people per day.


We passed through this dark tunnel...

We spent 40-45 minutes walking and capturing the place until we reached Jinhang Bridge (as seen at the background).

  15. What a great bridge! When you said that you had to wear helmets, I thought "Helmets? Those aren't going to offer much protection for tumbling from that bridge." I'm guessing there are lots of falling rocks. It looks beautiful!

  16. Lani....This is a fabulous collection of pictures. What a heavenly place to visit and photograph. I do not think I would walk out on that old swinging bridge with or without a helmet, and I certainly would not petition the government to allow me to cross it. I know you had a grand time on this outing.
