Shifen Waterfall Walk Area, New Taipei

4.0
See why people call Shifen Waterfall Walk Area "Little Niagara of Taiwan." The cascade, 20 m (66 ft) high and 40 m (130 ft) wide, represents the broadest waterfall in Taiwan. Take a walk to the viewpoint, enjoying the scene of mountains and forests. At certain places along the river you might notice small vortices that carve holes into the bottom due to an uneven flow. The powerful current takes water into a pool below, where you can often see rainbows with water splashes. A visit to Shifen Waterfall Walk Area represents just the start of the adventure when you use our New Taipei online road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Very strong. The natural view of the 礡, also the largest in Taiwan, is also recommended for foreign travellers to feel the stunning views of Niagara Falls. So AH!! On nine trips, you must also remember to arrange to take the train pinghsi line, and from the very train station, along the path to this very large waterfall (absolutely not wrong).

  • I went on a personal trip. Falls is 10 minutes from the train station one way about 20 minutes walk. I not only see the falls, enjoy the walking trip to the station, including location.

  • 'S souvenir shop around the falls itself was great, but also fun and you will wade through a shaky bridge, good memories. I went on a one-day tour from Taipei. Van was taken close to the falls, walk about a 15-minute walk from there. Some easy stairs or slippery, so go with athletic shoes are recommended.

  • The waterfall just looks serene. Go higher grounds to have a better view of the waterfall as it has one of the better space to snap pictures. Just be aware that there is a distance walk from train station to the waterfall thru some winding roads. Be careful during the walk. The place is nice to spend an hour or so at. Just bring along a windbreaker or an.umbrella as experience from my friend's and myself included is that it's always raining there
  • It's well maintained, a very good place to enjoy the waterfall and take good pictures here. Nicely built facilities around it, worth a visit for tourists. Please plan for at least 1 to 2 hours' time here. Even though it was raining during my visit, the whole trip is still considered as well acceptable.
  • This place wasn't what I was expecting when I decided to come visit a waterfall. However, it was quite the enjoyable visit! The walk over from the parking lot takes you over two pedestrian suspension bridges and several good photo ops. There are a couple of viewing platforms and there is a path that gets you right down to the base of the waterfall. I recommend picking up a snack after viewing the waterfall.. then going to the nearby town to set off a couple of sky lanterns! This stop should definitely be part of your trip!
  • stunning waterfall. too bad it's a cloudy day the day I went but still very beautiful. it's a 20-minute walk from the Shifen old street or you can choose to take a taxi if you are travelling in group, otherwise the taxi fee could be expensive. although it's not a difficult hike track, I would suggest you to wear some comfortable wears if you plan to go there. There are a few shops for drinks and small street foods there.
  • This is a definite "must see"! Be prepared for a long walk and climb. Just be aware of the park's 4pm closing time. Afterwards, we still had time to send up a sky lantern along the train tracks of Shifen Old Street.
