Shifen Waterfall Tours

10 Reviews
Shifen Waterfall
Shifen Waterfall is located in the Pingxi District of Taipei and is one of the most famous falls in Taiwan. At just 20 meters it’s not remarkably tall, but it is the widest waterfall in the country – it spans some 40 meters across – and is both incredibly powerful and majestically captivating. Torrents of water plunge into a deep pool, raising a shroud of mist that creates a dazzling rainbow effect on sunny days. The waterfall’s rocks slope in the opposite direction to the flow of the water in a cascade style similar to that of Niagara Falls, earning it the nickname, “Taiwan's Little Niagara.”

It is a scenic walk from Shifen railway station to the waterfall, with many choosing to extend the hike by alighting the train from Taipei at Sandiaoling and taking three or four hours to complete the Sandiaoling Waterfall Trail.

Practical Info

To reach Shifen Waterfall, take the train to Ruifeng from Taipei Main Station and then transfer to the Pingxi Line, alighting at Shifen. There’s a small entrance fee to see the waterfall and it’s advised to check that it’s open before setting off as there have been reports of recent closures.
