Wulai Falls

Wulai Falls: Address, Phone Number, Wulai Falls Reviews: 4/5

The area
Neighborhood: Xindian / Wulai District
The Bitan Scenic Area with its beautiful mountains and rivers was one of the eight sceneries of Taiwan earlier on and was reputed as the “little red cliff” due to its steep cliffs on the west bank. If you enjoy wandering through this area by bike, there are well established surrounding riverside cycling paths. One may also boat on Bitan in paddle boats which are also quite pleasant. If you are tired and would like to take some rest, why not set foot in feature restaurants on the east bank and comfort your soul with great food and beautiful scenery with an air of romance. The neighboring Wulai is one of the few districts in Northern Taiwan with indigenous culture. You can visit the Atayal Museum for the history and culture of indigenous people, or go for an in-depth indigenous tribal life experience and enjoy unique totems and architecture. The area is famous for its hot springs and cherry blossoms. Visit in spring to bask in the color of cherry blossoms, and experience hot springs in winter to warm the body and heart. Don’t miss the old street if you enjoy shopping and buying. If you want to stand closer to nature, the different appearance of Wulai Waterfall from time to time from trickling to overwhelming will capture your heart.

One of the island's prime attractions
Oct 2021
Wulai Falls is one of northern Taiwan's prime tourist attractions. Wulai is a township in the mountains inhabited by Atayal people. who are indigenous to the area. Wulai is 35 miles (55 km) by road from downtown Taipei. The Falls can be accessed by the Wulai Scenic Tram, and also by the Gondola. Wulai, apart from the Falls, is known for its hot springs and also the indigenous food. Wild boar is a piquant dish that many visitors are tempted to sample.

Not a day out without snacks
Apr 2021
Wulai Falls are a favourite day out for the people of Taipei. The falls have a drop of 80 metres (265 feet). The observation deck is the best vantage point. The Wulai Scenic Tram is small, but it is fun. One interesting feature is the site's Atayal (Aboriginal) heritage. Wulai Falls are in Xinbei (New Taipei), around 30 km (20 miles) south of Taipei City. For most people., it would not be a day out without trying the local cuisine such as barbecued wild boar sausages and muchi -- grilled glutinous rice kebab sticks.

Wulai's main scenic feature
Nov 2020
Wulai is 30 kms (20 miles) south of Taipei. It is up in the mountains. You can take a walk in the mountains, it is quite pleasant; the foliage is usually lush.. The main feature of Wulai is the waterfall, many people take a trip just to see it.

Good for a Sunday walk
Apr 2019
We went there around April 2019. The place is beautiful. You will pass on a local food stalls and a bridge. You can ride a trolley train or either walk going to the Wulai waterfall. The view is beautiful! The place is clean. There is also a free water refill station and chairs you can sit on.

Nice walk under cool weather
Feb 2020 • Solo
Take a direct bus from Xindian MRT station and it will bring you directly to the Wulai bus terminal, where you can spend the whole day strolling under the cool weather. You can sip coffee at the cafe overlooking the waterfall before proceeding to take the cable up to the so called amusement park where there are restaurants and coffee house to enjoy the scenery while listening to the live performance. Do remember to use the discount voucher included in your cable car ticket when buying drinks at the cafe. It's about 45 minutes walk up to the peak and you can roll a boat, have lunch and enjoy some music. A highly recommended place to visit.

The waterfall is nice and is worth visiting. There is a visitor centre where you can sit at the outdoor and take nice pics of the waterfall.

Nice Short Hike to the Falls
Nov 2019
I walked on the way to the falls for about 20-30 minutes (I walk slow and stop every now and then for pictures). That short hike was amazing! It was almost on flat concrete terrain. The best part is the view of the mountain cliff and river along the way. It was slightly raining but it made the colors of nature more vivid :)
I rode the tram (50 NTD) on the way back, which was fun as well.

Refreshing
Jun 2019 • Solo
From Wulai township, ride a trolley train for a couple of minutes, you can arrive at this refreshing place. You can also walk from Wulai, and it takes no more than 30 minutes. There are not many restaurants around. So, if you take lunch, it is better to do so in Wulai.

Pretty close to everything in Wulai
Aug 2018 • Friends
Once you come to Wulai either through a bus or that little miner railway, you will most likely see this waterfall. It's a nice waterfall and you can basically see it without ever having to pursue it. Basically if you come to Wulai, you will see this place, so that's pretty convenient. You can't swim in the river below, so don't think about it.

Long walk for the waterfall
May 2019 • Friends
It’s a relatively far waterfall as the nearest you can get is still quite a distance away. It’s quite a Long walk (approx 1.5km with some slope and there isn’t always a proper pavement for waking travellers). Alternatively, you can take the train to reach the waterfall station and walk for 5min to see the waterfall. There’s also an exhibition area about the history of Wulai.
