Dangers & Annoyances
Earthquakes, typhoons and landslides regularly affect which trails are open and a small number of visitors have been injured or killed in recent years from falling rocks.
There are no ATMs that take international cards in the park.
The English-speaking Taroko National Park HQ has useful information on the status of trails and road conditions, plus excellent free maps, bus timetables and brochures of hiking trails. There's an extensive museum-like introduction to the park along with a busy cafe and bookshop.
