Cave at Heren Beach, Taroko, Hualien

Cave at Heren Beach, Taroko, Hualian

 

在路途上我們選擇在和仁沙灘上歇息,這裡位於花蓮接近太魯閣國家公園。

我們在和仁沙灘上面找到不少優良的抱石地點,當然也有些不差的上攀,大部分都是大理石組成的岩層。

但在沙灘上一個被當地人標示的 “洪龍”洞穴吸引我們的目光。

這是在沙灘上一個垂直的裂隙,一開始走進去空間瞬間變窄,再往內幾公尺氣溫開始驟降,再往內走幾步路可以感覺到頭上的水滴。用力的將身體擠過裂隙,空間突然變大可以讓你休息。但後面的裂隙更為狹長需要技巧才能通過,雖然你可以在裂隙後面看到一些陽光,這讓你猜想那裡是否就是出口?

當天並沒有完成探索,照了幾張照片與影片,我們把這個冒險留給下次的旅行。

We stop for a break at Heren beach at Hualien near Taroko National Park.

Try to find some good bouldering area on the beach and actually there are plenty of them. All good Marble for boulder even climb with.

But this cave that marked “洪龍” by locals at the entrance caught our eye.

It’s a vertical open crack at the beach and instantly become really narrow if you walk in. Temperature drop dramatically few meters in. A few more step you can feel the water dripping above your head. Keep squeezing your body in and suddenly there is an open space that you can rest a bit. But the crack after this become really narrow and skillful to squeeze through. Peek into the crack ahead you can see there is a bit of sunlight and you wonder if that’s the exit or not.

We quit exploring that day, shot some photos and videos and save this adventure for the next time.
