As our 5 day bus tour draws to a close, we reach the Eternal Spring Shrine, one of the most picturesque sections of Taroko National Park. To reach it, we first have to walk through this suspension bridge.
You can see the shrine on the side of the mountain while on the bridge.
But first, you have to walk a narrow pathway cut through the side of a cliff. Don't worry, it is safe, but don't look down.
The shrine commemorates the 200+ workers who lost their lives while helping to build the Central Cross Island Highway between 1956 to 1960.
The workers' names are listed inside the shrine.
From the shrine, we look back to where our tour bus is parked way off in the distance. I was sorry to leave this beautiful place and for the tour to end where we met some great friends.
