Houtong Waterfall


After the restoration of Taiwan, the water source at the upstream of the waterfall became scarce. Hence, the villagers of Baiyuen Village built another small water channel to transform the lowest water flow of the waterfall into a man-made waterfall, lead the water into the water channel for irrigation purposes. Hence, this greatly reduces the water quantity of the original waterfall. Only during rainy season can visitors observe the beauty of the 6 meters wide and 25 meters high waterfall.

Visitors can enjoy the quiet and peaceful scenery here. Climbing up the steep cliff and standing at the rock on the top of the waterfall, you can see Turtle Island from afar. Traveling further into the valley at the upstream of the waterfall, you can see weathered grottos and feel that you are in a water curtain cave. As crossing the rocks and climbing up the cliff is difficult and dangerous, but the beautiful scenery at the top is worth giving it a try. There is a rumor saying that if lovers ascend Houtong Waterfall together, they will unit harmoniously and become a family. You may give it a try and prove if the rumor is true.
