TAROKO TOUR TOMORROW
Beyond RESEARCH PRESENTATION, Program Planning Committee arranges a trip to Taroko National Park in the afternoon. Taroko National Park is located in the eastern Taiwan county of Hualien. The sinuous road snakes along midway up 3,000-foot craggy cliffs that soar high above the river. The rushing water continues to etch out the gorge as it has for millenniums. Sheer marble and granite formations tower hundreds of feet into the mist. What really makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention are the miles of 3-foot-wide trails carved into the face of mountain walls hundreds of feet above the ravine. We look forward to your experiencing. It centers around the Taroko Gorge, which provides the park's most famous scenic attractions with sights of majestic mountain streams, the Eternal Spring Shrine, Swallows' Grottoes, Tunnel of Nine Turns, and other scenes of outstanding beauty. The famous Paiyang Waterfall and the Qingshui Precipice are perfect expressions of the precipitous natural wonders of Taroko National Park. We whish you an enjoyable and stimulating trip.

   
CAMPUS PARTY TOMORROW
Tomorrow, Taiwan Hospitality and Tourism College (THTC)will hold a Campus Party. You may have a good time tasting the aboriginal cuisine and enjoy first-rate performance in THTC delicately situated in Hualien-Taitung East Rift Valley.
