Good hiking trails, but you may not be able to get to the base of the falls. The other trails make up for that though. If you're going to Xiaowulai by public transportation, I'd recommend leaving a bit earlier in the morning - it gets crowded in the afternoon

This is an easily accessible scenic area in the north-west of Taiwan, about 1 hours drive from motorway 3. Despite our visit being on a holiday weekend, there weren't too many people there, so car parking was easy, and we could view the waterfalls at leisure. A bit commercialised, but doesn't overly detract from the views.

If you are not a walker..prepare yourself to walk a lot. Bring your own drink, because the shop is not available in some site. The waterfall is so beautiful and make me don't want to go home. :D

This is a very nice place for family trekking. Trail are accessible for wheelchair or baby tram. Air is fresh with lots of nature. Good for those who feel relax in greenery and fresh air.

Loved the view from the base of the waterfall. Takes about 20 minutes walk to the base. Also the transparent bridge above the waterfall is not to be missed though it may be quite crowded.
