This is the last part of Taroko one day trip.
When we finished Lushui Trail, we began our journey to Tiansiang. Then we turned back to YueFei Pavilion. Eventually Bart got rid of his acrophobia here. He walked through the wire bridge again and again, for photo’s and video to prove that he can!
After that, we went to Changchun Shrine. Because of raining, we skipped the Changchun Trail but we went to Changuang Temple.
In the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Li invited us to LanLan Restaurant for dinner.
The Old Access Roads.
Eternal Spring (Changchun) Shrine.
Building the Central Cross Island Highway was a dangerous undertaking. The lives of 225 people were lost and another 702 were injured. To honor those people this site was constructed in June of 1958. The Eternal Spring Shrine and its surrounding area has become one of Taroko National Park main historical and scenic attractions. During Typhoon Herbert in August 1979, landslides to the west of this area caused boulders to crash down on the shrine and the other nearby structures. The reconstruction was completed on 17 March 1980 but the shrine was destroyed again by the forces of nature on 6 July 1987. The shrine you se before you is thus the third incarnation of the Eternal Spring Shrine!
