Taroko National Park is located in the east of Taiwan. It lies across 3 administrative areas, Hualien County, Taichung County, and Nantou County. Taiwan’s Central Cross-Island Highway crosses the park, which is at the eastern end of the highway.

According to Wikipedia Taroko park was originally established in 1937 when Taiwan was part of Japan.  After World War II the ROC government abolished the park. It was not reestablished as a National Park until 1986.

Following are some photos of the Park taken in 1971-72 time period:
