Wulai Falls, New Taipei

4.0
#2 of 87 in Parks in New Taipei
Visit the popular Wulai Falls, nestled among high mountains and lush greenery. The falls have a height of roughly 80 m (262 ft) and can be reached by various hiking trails or a little passenger train that winds through beautiful scenery. Follow the path for a short distance to reach the base of the falls, or make your way to the observation deck for spectacular views. The path will take you through an open-air market and the beautiful "Lovers' Path," where you’ll have the perfect photo opportunity of the river below. Unfortunately, the area suffers from ongoing problems due to a recent cyclone, so many hiking trails have been closed and the passenger train sometimes shuts down due to landslides. That said, you can still take the direct paths to the waterfalls.

  • The waterfall itself is not spectacular or must visit, but the charming surrounds adds to its beauty and is worth a half day trip from Taipei. The trolley bus, Gondola ride to the resort on top, the c...  more »

  • Saw the waterfall on Reunion Island looks like, but obviously Taiwan this falls is good, moved. Down the river is the same mood as the Pamir River. So is there a place like Japan, but here are the spectacular sights if you have time come I want. Visitors take a train ride answer that?.

  • Great waterfalls, in a great area. Definitely worth the time it takes to get here from the city, but it is pretty easy to get here considering the distance. After you visit the water falls you can visit the nearby night market, making for a great trip out of the city and a visit to nature.
  • The main fall is good and all the tourists go there (some good restaurants around), but honestly... there are better looking (although smaller) falls not very far from the main drag. If you take the cable car to the top of the fall, nature is stunning, but the facilities are a little run down. They were busy with some work last time I was up there, so this might have improved.
  • The place is pretty good, the car park is closed, June (2018) will be reopened. Access for the disabled is tolerable, because it is a straight paved road. Can ride a mini train with ticket costs 70NTD and for the elderly can discount half price. For sky train 410NTD.
  • Usually don't care for waterfalls but this one was quite a beautiful multilayer cascade. The churning whitewater main river that crosses perpendicular beneath is also uniquely stunning as it flowing through the black metamorphic rock boulders. Mini tram ride up was fun and inexpensive. The little town area by the waterfall charming and not too crowded.
  • This was the first trek I did when I went to Taipe. It amazing. I swam in the natural rivers in a secluded area. And then the Hotspring. -(all free). Walked across the bridges and walked to the waterfall.
