The area
Neighborhood: Ruifan District
With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu (ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels, it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.

Ruifang District Is A Wonderful Place To Visit
Dec 2019 • Couples
On a recent trip to Taiwan,Republic of China-ROC we visited the beautiful "The Xuan Zang Temple" and traveled on the rail system to the
Ruifang Station to visit the Ruifang District.
At each of these locations the visitors centers offered interesting stamps for visitors as a momento of their visit.We found them to be fascinating- I have images of those beautiful stamps.

Sandiaoling Waterfall Trail
Nov 2017 • Friends
Since the northen part of Taiwan is perennially wet (at least during Taiwans winter), you will need to find some things to do while it is raining. If you like to hike and see three beautiful large waterfalls, go and try the Sandiaoling Waterfall Trail. This is a perfect activity to do in the rain, since the trail heads through a dense forrest and blocks most of the rain. Tip: Put on some sufficient shoes (the trail can be slippery) and bring a raincoat.

The trail starts close to the Sandiaoling Station (take the Pingxi Railway Line and get out at Sandiaoling). A small walkway follows the tracks south untill they split, cross under and follow the tracks to the right (Pingxi Line). On your way to the trailhead, you can already spot the wooden signposts that will lead the way. When you reach a small village, cross the railway tracks and you will spot a map showing the hiking routes.

The trail is easy accessible, simple and easy to follow, at least till the third waterfall (approx. one hour). Along the way, you will encouter three large waterfalls: Hegu falls, Motion falls and the Pipa Dong falls. The Motion Falls and the Pipa Dong falls are two stunning 30m falls that look almost identical and are in each others vicinity. Try to find the hidden passage to get right behind the Motion fall via a cave formed by the overhang (see picture).

If you want to do an all day hike, you can continue hiking to Shifen (approximately 1.30 hours from the top of the Pipa Dong falls) or turn around and take the train back from Sandiaoling Station or continue to explore the Pingxi Railway line.
