Vibrant red arched roofs and gold plating make this temple a rare gem.

On your final day in Taipei, stroll in the massive forested national park, Yangmingshan.

Return for your final night in your luxury Taipei hotel.

Day 4
The Lalu Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Leaving Taipei, travel to the home of the Thao tribe, and explore the Sun Moon Lake. This is the largest body of water in Taiwan. Settle in to your luxury room at The Lalu, before taking a boat tour from the Shueishe Wharf, where you can snap a breathtaking picture of the incredible lake surrounded by natural greenery. End the day at a traditional tea factory sampling the different Taiwanese flavors.

Day 5
The Lalu Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Marvel at the view of Sun Moon Lake as you ride in a cable car on the Ropeway. Continue on to visit the Wenwu Temple, located on the shoulder of the mountain and on Sun Moon Lake. Rebuilt after the 1999 earthquake, the classic temple is in pristine condition. Next, marvel at the vast amount of marble at Taroko Gorge. After checking in to your luxury room at Silks Place, stretch your legs and climb to the top of the gorge for a stunning view of the natural scenery below.

Day 6
Silks Place Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Take your adventure to the next level as you river trace in the Taroko Gorge. Truly the best way to enjoy the view, you will combine climbing and hiking in the picturesque (and safe) environment. Visit the Changchun Shrine, or the Eternal Spring Shrine. The shrine commemorates the 212 construction workers who died building the Central Cross-Island Highway. Put on your waterproof gear when you visit the Shuilian Cave, or the Water Curtain Cave. Brought to fame by the novel, Journey to the West, this is where the main character sought enlightenment. Before your journey ends, hike the Shakadang Trail, or Mysterious Valley Trail, built along the river’s edge, and get one last glimpse of the postcard-perfect views.
