The Xiangde Temple in Taroko Gorge is a beautiful spot, and at the top of a long set of stairs you can see breathtaking mountainous views of the surrounding area.

Around the half-way mark of stairs you can take a pit-stop for snacks and tea from local merchants.

The Xiangde Temple is famous for the highest-elevated statue of Ksitigarbha, a bodhisattva who protects souls in hell and who vowed not to become a buddha until they are freed.
