Scenic Waterfall

It is a nice drive although the Typhoon caused a lot of damage which slows things in some places. The waterfall and river a scenic and worth a visit.

The view of Wulai Waterfall is nice. However, due to the damage caused by the typhoon this summer, many attractions were closed! Even the spots around the waterfall, we just took a few pictures there!

As other recent reviews helpfully note this area has not yet fully recovered. Consequently the range of hiking and sight seeing is reduced. The lower road from Wulai to the waterfall remains closed. The small resort around the waterfall is a bit dilapidated and not fully open (although the cable car is running). I wanted to visit the waterfalls in... More

Still worth a visit, although you now have to take a longer route which is about 45-60 min uphill. When walking out of the 7/11, take a left (uphill) then follow that road..take the first left, then follow that road until you get to the waterfall. There is a faster route (which google maps will recommend, but it's been damaged... More

How about to take a morning bus from Taipei General Station to Wu-lai and start to walk from the bus station to the waterfall and try to take a mini coal mine train back to the town street. Pick one of the hot-spring bath spot for an easy half an hour dip and then try to local fresh-grew vege and... More

We visited on November 9th 2015. The waterfall is very nice and is open for viewing. To get there take the bus # 849 from the end of the MRT Green Line - Xindian Station. Exit the station to the right and turn left to the first bus stop. The last stop for the bus is Wulai. Exit the bus... More

An attraction that does not try too hard to impress. Just being near it brings you a peace of mind. I can't imagine water from the waterfall is hot and I would love to join the locals in the public for a hot spring bath. The locals have lived here long before Chinese arrived. I can see why they never... More

I went to the waterfall as part of a tour to learn about indigenous peoples of Taiwan. It was a nice respite from the city, although it offered no escape from heat and humidity! We took the Wulai Scenic Tourist Train, a creaky, little former logging or coal train--depending on who you ask) from the lower parking lot. You can... More

There's not a lot of water and it's not particularly spectacular. But it's fine to come if you'd spend a night at a hot spring hotel. The tiny train ride is expensive and you may hike up here (about 20 mins) instead.

I loved the beautiful scenery and the tasty local food. And the hot spring was awesome. Some of the small hotels provide in-room hot spring but you can also try those outdoor ones.
