Yehliu Geopark, Taiwan

Me at the park’s entrance

Yehliu Geopark is beautiful, unique, and fascinating. It is the home of millions of rocks, shaped into their unique forms through years and years of contacts with nature, i.e. the waves.

The park’s website offers you a better explanation of the rocks. Sorry my explanation wasn’t too clear. I was never – and still am – not good with science.

Turns out there are many different types of rocks on the park, but my tour guide only pointed the mushroom-shaped ones. This is why my pictures are only limited to those rocks, but they are exceptional and they remind me more of ice cream rather than mushrooms.

SONY DSCThis one’s my favorite. It looks like a giant ice cream on a cone. Fascinating, right? How long do you think it take to form a rock just like this?

SONY DSCThe park is surrounded by waters. Look how clear it is. Gorgeous view.

Tourists are forbidden to go down near the water, because a few months back, a family was enjoying playing on the water when a huge wave hit them and swept them off to the sea. Their bodies were never recovered. So we stayed near the rocks and enjoyed the view of the open water from afar.
