Taipei-Over 1,000 visitors were treated Saturday to live music and dance performances at the Taroko National Park, which hosted its 18th annual Taroko Music Festival, an outdoor bash that has been held for almost two decades.
The event took place at the Taroko Terrace, an area of open ground that sits above the Liwu River estuary and covers roughly three hectares. The site is also home to the Taroko Terrace Trail, popular among tourists.
This year's festival included performances by the Hualien Symphony Orchestra and songs by Gorge Duet, two indigenous singers based in Hualien.
What's different this time is that the festival featured indigenous performances alongside the orchestral music and traditional Hakka music, said Yu Teng-liang (???), who heads the Taroko National Park Headquarters.
The festival is one of the major autumn attractions in the area and an ideal time to tour the Taroko National Park thanks to the cooler weather, he said.
