Stretching some 1,700 m (5,577 ft) into the ocean, YehLiu Geopark serves as a natural exhibition area for some of the strangest tent rock formations in the world. Dotted with hoodoo stones, the promontory offers fantastic views of the distinctive geological formations created in Miocene, which pushed the Dalian Mountains out of the sea. Marvel at the rocky Queen’s Head, the rock resembling a profile of Elizabeth II Queen of England, then check out Sea Candles, Fairy’s Shoe, or Ginger Rock. You can have fun concocting your own name for some of the shapes while walking through a forest of tall mushroom-shaped rocks. This bizarre Martian-like landscape can be reached by bus 90 minutes from West Taipei station.

Awesome rock formations. It is truly a wow for me! So incredible work of nature. 😁 I have so much fun with this place. Lots of rock formations formed like, buns, mushrooms, ginger, elephant, and many more .. And the center piece, the queen's head 😁. When you want to visit here, give enough time to enjoy it in full. It's a huge place and it is divided into sections. So it really needs your time for you to see all the areas. Get ready with your umbrella and water, you'll be sweating roaming around especially when it is sunny hour 😂. I pay NT$80 (adult ticket) for the entrance. Also, There are some refreshment shops near the entrance.
A must visit when in Taiwan, this place is not far from Taipei City, only more that an hour ride. The rock formation is great. You can see and be more aware of how natures works. There are hundreds of tourist in this area, so taking photo is a little difficult. Due to people moving around, a lot of patience is needed if you want to take good photos. If you are a nature lover, you will love this place, looking at the different rock formation was an experience.
