Taiwan National Parks: Off the Beaten Path

Taiwan is a land of astonishing beauty and diversity.  You'll find jungles, snowcapped mountains, white sand beaches and historic temples in different areas of the island.  While visiting the urban centers is a great way to enjoy a trip to Taiwan, there are other areas for your exploration pleasure. 

Taiwan's national parks are some of the most pristine and beautiful in the world.  Exploring those parks is one of the best ways to get to know this amazing country.


Kenting is the oldest national park in Taiwan, and combines both azure seas and pristine waters.  Located at the southern tip of the island, Kenting National Park can be easily accessed from almost anywhere in the country.  Kenting is also one of the most popular national parks in Taiwan, attracting millions of travelers every year, from around the country and the world.  Numerous resorts lie scattered around the beaches of the park, providing fantastic access to the natural beauty and enjoyment of the area.


Yushan National Park is the largest national park in Taiwan, and boasts the tallest peak in the area, Jade Mountain.  The Yushan Range, Dongpu Hot Spring, the Tataka recreation area and many other attractions bring people to this stunning area every year.  If you enjoy mountain scenery, hiking, flowing streams, cascading waterfalls and virgin forest, this is the idyllic setting for you.


Taroko is a park of gorges, but also of history and prehistory.  Named after the Taroko tribe, the area is home to rich history and culture, as well as the famous marble gorge.  This area is one of the most visually stunning in the world, providing incredible views.  You will also enjoy numerous hiking and cultural exploration options.


Dongsha Marine National Park is located in the north coastal waters of Taiwan and centers on Dongsha Island and the surrounding waters.  A salt lake on the island offers fun swimming and interesting wildlife, while the pristine waters around the atoll teem with wildlife.  The area was once part of the Silk Road, though it is now protected.  The atoll is a stunning white color, set against the azure of the sea.  Rather than volcanic rock, the island is made up of coral skeletons, which gives it its color, as well as the name "White Pearl."

There are many other national parks of note in Taiwan, each worthy of your notice and exploration.  Visiting these parks is the best way to enjoy the true beauty of this enchanting land.
