We took a 3-hour train from Taipei City to Hualien City where we booked a tourist guide to show us around the place.  Hualien is a small city with nothing much to offer but boost a remarkable amount of stone quarries.

Impressive scenery as we rode along.  The mountains were covered in a blanket of mist.

The first destination was the picturesque Long Spring Shrine.  This shrine is dedicated to the 226 people who died during the four year period in which the highway and tunnels were constructed.

Gorgeous shrine above waterfalls

This pagoda is right above the Eternal Spring Shrine with a Buddhist temple up there.
