Gukeng Township, Yunlin County 646, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
10000 Year Gorge is situated at the border between Nantou and Yunlin counties and is not far away from Chiayi County. For general tourists, the spot is not easy to get to as it takes around 1 to 2 hours’ drive no matter from Nantou County or Yunlin County through industrial roads along the mountains.
As Taiwan is an island located in the subtropical zone, it is impossible to see terrains formed by glacial movement which is common in Europe, or by river erosion that is often seen in America. However, 10000 Year Gorge, being rare in Taiwan topography, is like a mini Great Canyon with the geographic variations and stream erosion.
In addition to 10000 Year Gorge, a travel schedule including Zhushan Sky Ladder and Xitou Monster Village in Nantou County during one day is recommended.
