Yehliu Geopark

0

Yehliu Geopark is located at Wanli of New Taipei City. Because the rock layers of the nearby seashore contains limestone that is subject to marine erosion, weather and earth movements, Yehliu is full of seawater-eroded holes and rocks that comes in shapes of mushrooms and chessboards. There are about 180 rocks; among them resides the famous and majestic Queen’s Head, which is now the landmark of this geology park.

Honeycomb-shaped rocks everywhere!

At this point, it was completely disorganised because there were many Mainland Chinese tourists clamouring to take a photo together with the Queen’s Head. There was a security guard constantly yelling at everyone to hurry. So on your part, just make sure your camera settings are ready and prepare to flash your best smile, because you literally have like, 3 seconds, before the guard opens his mouth.

Also, don’t stray from the path and keep your hands to yourself! Those rocks aren’t real honeycomb, y’know.
