The waterfall is about 2km from the train stations. Entrance to the waterfall trail is free, but operating hour is from 9am - 430pm. Although the waterfall is not very big, the view is still quite pretty and would thus recommend people to visit. Tip - If you are already inside the waterfall trail, u can try to stay slightly...

To enter the park, you need to cross this wobbly bridge which for those who has height phobia might get discouraged but bear through and the waterfall view will not disappoint. It's not a big park so usually once people are done with taking pictures they will visit the old street nearby.

Firstly, as you talk a walk from the old street to the waterfall area, you will notice a little waterfall beneath the bridge. While it is kind of pretty, but this isn't the big waterfall, so keep walking over the bridge. Also please keep everything tied and secure as the bridge only has netting, So you camera CAN drop into... More

Was on vacation in Taipei and I'm glad to visit this place. It was really refreshing and quiet. Took a few hours just walking and enjoying nature. Loved it!

A very peaceful place outside Taipei in what is called the New Taipei District. The area is the Pingxi District. Even though it is called a waterfall, it is actually a cascade. The falls are about 40m wide and 20m high and just right for a good photo to be taken. A very moist area which adds to the atmosphere... More

Everyone has to cross the suspension bridge and walk down a flight of stairs and then some before reaching the famed Waterfalls so don't stop at the suspension bridge (which we almost did until I googled for more pictures and followed the quick moving crowd down the stairs and walked further up). You will need to walk past a muddy... More

The road most-traveled leads to the magnificent Shifen Waterfall, the broadest in Taiwan at 40 meters. Afterwards, be sure to take the path closer to the river's edge; here, you will traverse two suspension bridges and see at least two more waterfalls. On rainy days, such as when we visited, even more!

We happened to be here on a gorgeously sunny but cool day so the walk and the stairs were pleasant. The crowd at the viewing away was fine as everyone sorta takes turns getting their selfie with the waterfall. The way to do this from Taipei is set yourself up with a driver / car for a day trip and... More

It was quite a long walk to see the waterfall but it was worth the walk. Along the way, you can stop and have some tea or snacks

Beautiful waterfall park that has good walkways and is free for everyone (actually I noticed that MANY of the recreational parks in Taiwan are FREE for everyone, including foreign tourists). Following the path you are able to walk around the park and have different angles to view the beautiful waterfall. Plenty of signs along the walkways have descriptions of the... More
