TAIWAN

-   the Central Mountain range -

- along the EAST-WEST CROSS-ISLAND highway -



The East-West Cross-Island highway is in itself a 120 miles long remarkable feat of engineering. It starts at the magnificent Taroko gorge,- and then in the most dramatical way twists and turns up across the Central Mountain range,- where Taiwan's most varied and beautiful scenery can be found.
Here is the highest mountains,- and you can see "the Sea of Clouds"! This is a true wonderland with breathtaking beauty.

Please enjoy my impressions from a too fast trip across the Central Highland:
