Here are 2 photographs of the jaw dropping Swallow Grotto. This narrow part of Taroko Gorge is composed of marble(!) cliff faces covered with small holes. This is the result of long-term erosion by river and ground water.
I just had to put up a few pictures of this location. I wish I had more time to take better pictures here, but I had very limited time, because I didn’t want to miss the last bus up to Tienhsiang, where I was staying. Actually the last bus never came and I ended up walking the 10km uphill along the road in the dark and pouring rain. Fortunately I had a flashlight so I didn’t need to walk in total darkness.
