The Tianxiang area of the Taroko National Park provides a natural stopping off point for visitors to the gorge. There are a selection of small stalls, a post office and even a 7-Eleven! The adjacent temple, pagoda, bridges and river mean that the area is very photogenic. Although we didn't stay overnight, there are some accommodation options here too.

Tianxiang is the deep gorge, from here there are couple of nice hiking trails, up from the local eateries, with great views on the surrounding peaks.

Our taxi driver brought us to this location while she took her lunch break. It appeared to be a lunch stop for many taxi drivers as well. There are a few eateries in this place. We went into a restaurant called "Zhen Hao Wei" as the lady standing out distributing flyers (see photo) was helpful in offering to throw a... More

I'm usually a fan of hostels, but the two times that I have stayed at the Youth Hostel in Tianshan, I have left with ticks attached to my legs and body. The restaurant is good, the cafe has a nice atmosphere, but stay away from the hostel beds. The temple in Tianshan is a must see. Get your climbing legs... More

The accommodation is more basic than Silk Palace Hotel but the price is more reasonable. We had our lunch break at the Youth Activity Centre and the food was delicious and cheap.

The walks around Tiansiang are wonderful. Do the Bai-yang trail. It is about a 3 hour slow walk to some nice waterfalls.

Tienhsiang is within the Taroko Gorge and contains a post office, souvenior shop which accepts visa and mastercard payments (very convenient). It is also a rest stop for taxis, tour buses, and private motor vehicles. There is also a small resort at Tienhsiang and of course there is the famous temple where you need to climb a mountain of stairs... More
