Yehliu Geopark 野柳地质公园

As I went to most of the tourist spots covered in this company retreat and had already blogged about them, I shan’t waste time writing about the same places. The only attraction left that I have yet to write for this short trip is Yehliu Geopark (野柳地质公园).

Along the way to the park, our tour guide told us that this nature attraction is among the top 10 attraction spots in the world. Wow is it really that wonderful? 😉 As it was a sunny Sunday morning, the park was packed with lots of tourists, especially from mainland China, mostly arriving in large tour coaches. So I actually missed taking photo at the entrance with the big signage! -_-“

The park can be divided into 3 areas:  1. mushroom rock and ginger rock; 2. Queen’s Head and Dragon’s Head rocks near the coastal area; 3. wave-cut platform where the major ecology reserve of the Yehliu Geopark is.  Mother Nature is indeed amazing to create all these rock formations so beautifully. Here are photos I managed to take during the 1-hour tour there 🙂

The Yehliu Geopark is really quite beautiful, just that it was too sunny and hot for a leisure walk. But good thing was the photos turned out nice due to sunny weather hee. There were so many tourists, that even taking a photo of the Queen’s Head without any obstacles was difficult and we had to queue to take photos in front of the Queen’s Head.

If you love natural landscapes, think Yehliu Geopark will be a great destination for you, but it may be more advisable to go during cooler season haha.
