Houtong Waterfall

Introduction

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.

    This is a less popular and hence less crowded option to the popular spots to the south. We dropped by here because we were staying nearby and wanted a short walk with our kids. The short path is a little rocky and the stairs are steep.

    離大馬路很近。停好車走上去,很安全,樓梯都有保護架。可能前晚下雨,瀑布的水很豐沛。除了充滿芬多精更有無數的負離子。坐在瀑布下20分鐘。原本想睡午覺的頭腦都清醒了。真的太神奇了。記得要穿布鞋來。沒有很困難的行程。

    騎車到山下,大約走十分鐘就看到瀑布了,稍微拍個照後再往上走,就會到達瀑布的頂端。從瀑布頂端就可以眺望半個蘭陽平原。但因為被樹木擋住、景緻其實一般般,大家可以參考。

    礁溪のあたりには滝の景勝地がいくつかあるが、ここはアクセスがいい。荘厳な滝というわけではないが、台湾を十分に感じられる良い滝。

    距離市區不算太遠,但要記得穿好走的褲子,我還把褲子捲起來泡個腳,涼涼的很舒服,要花一點點時間爬上去,但不難,上面是真的美,而且距離很近的
