3.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
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.

  • More rain, 10 minutes had a very powerful waterfall. From the train station 15 minutes walk is good exercise. Free admission is also delicious.

We pay NT $80 per person for the price of admission. The heavy rain of the previous days made the very heavy fall, which is quite magnificent. However, there were so many tourists in the place that we felt that the environment was a little full. There is much to see in the cascade, unless they get a few drinks and snacks. We went after a while for shifen old street, which was 20 minutes of walk from the area of the waterfall.
