Shifen Waterfall, Xinbei

(4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Observe nature at its best at Shifen Waterfall. Surrounded by the thick forest, you can witness the power of water as it falls from the tall rocks into the green pool below. You'll have the chance to light a paper lantern and send it out into the sky--with a wish--watch as it flies over the waterfall. Wear footwear with good grip, as the path can get pretty wet around this spot. Take a break at the visitor center, where you can enjoy a meal or some liquid refreshment. Our Xinbei itinerary maker makes visiting Shifen Waterfall and other Xinbei attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • its really an awesome scenics , beautiful and wonderful sceneries with its waterfall. which linking to the hanging bridge .  more »
  • Why? Pointless. The rest of the park stays open but they close the 50 foot viewing platform at 4:30. Why? Just keep it open with the rest of the park.  more »
  • Go fly a thousand, and so used to visit a lot of spun near the falls. Usually you can see small waterfalls in South Korea, but surprisingly pours a fairly large scale waterfall la cool water. Walking the walk on the way to the falls road has its own unciga, not hard or long journey because I have the idea that happy to walk just to visit. It could not, or not much more than me, which draws or look into visiting.

  • A beautiful waterfall, about 20-30 minutes walk from Shifen town. It was a pleasant walk with changing trails along the way. It's definitely not as busy as the town itself since a lot of people seem to skip the waterfall. There is a tourist information center with one cafe in between the town and the waterfall, so be sure to eat and drink at the town before you head out here if you think you will get hungry and thirsty. Strongly recommended for those who love nature and walking!
  • Far distance from Shifen to walk to here. Recommend to rent a electric bike at Shifen to here to shorten your travel period. It's really nice waterfall to visit and take photos. This place is maintenance well.
  • Is a nice place. If you go to Shifen I recommend you to start the day in Cat Village, then go to SanDiaoLing waterfalls and finally go to Shifen to enjoy the waterfalls and old street. You can make all in one day and is better if you buy the one day ticket of 80NT
  • I liked the walk to the waterfall so much! Definitely going there worth the travel! Is quite far from the city Centre and you need to change 2 trains before arriving in Shifen, but still the landscape is something that will left you without words!
  • You need to walk at least 20 mins from the station to reach the waterfalls. And when you reach the viewing deck there's a bit of a crowd. But all in all, it was a beautiful waterfalls.
