See the Taishaku Gorge from a cruising boat

The valley and the lake at the Taishaku Gorge are said to be about 300 million years old. This popular natural tourist destination was born by erosion of the karst tableland of limestone from the raised ocean floor by the Taishaku River. The 18km long canyon features several places of rare scenic beauty. This treasure-trove of natural science has much to teach you about rare geological features, flora and fauna. The autumn leaves at Taishaku Gorge are at their best from late October to beginning of November. Enjoying them from a cruising boat on the lake is particularly beautiful. The 15km tunnel of bright autumn leaves along the lake is another way to enjoy a stroll in the gorge.
