Yehliu is one of those must visit place for all nature lovers that holiday in Taipei. It’s is actually a cape on the north of Taiwan between Taipei and Keelung. As you can imagine there were tons of tourists even though it was raining that day. See all the colorful umbrellas out at play!
The lovely hoodoo rocks you see were all a result of mother nature which is the beauty of it all. I absolutely loved how the red rocks with their unusual formations and the red cliffs contrasted with the blues and greens of the sea. Spectacular don’t you think?
This cape was formed as the geothermal pressures try to push Datun Mountain (a volcano) out of the sea. Keelung is a volcanic area so there are many lovely natural formations and Yehliu is the most famous of them all.
A life buoy for tourist that insists on going pass the safety borders and risk getting swept away by the strong winds and mighty sea. The safety borders are denoted with red tape on the floor near to the edge of the cliffs but most tourists seem to just ignore it.
There are actually more photos especially of the famous “Queen’s Head” rock which is the main symbol of this area and is constantly being eroded by nature. It is said that in another 15 years, there won’t be that rock anymore. Unfortunately, those pictures were taken with my dad’s camera and I never got them uploaded on my computer so these are all the photos I have.
