This is a wonderful waterfall not to be missed. Realised only locals go there and not tourist by coach as one needs to walk around 20 minutes at least to reach from the parking area. It is definitely a worth while fall to visit in Yilan.

Good exercise to walk up the stairs to see waterfalls. There was a Catholic Church above the hill. Beautiful scenery!

Highly recommend if in Yilan Township, walk ways are paved and have proper stairs so easy to get around with an amazing view of 3 waterfalls. On the top is a church. Went here with my mom and we both enjoyed. A lot of families and children around. Air is clean and crisp.

This place is close to my accomodation. So, I ride to here by bicycle. It is valuable to come here. Nice place, air and easy to travel here.

Before catching a glimpse of the Wufengxi, one needs to take a short hike to the observation deck. As the ground is level and paved, the walk is pleasant and comfortable as you pass by rows of small residential houses and food kiosks. The waterfall in itself isn't really breathtaking to look at; however, the lush greenery surrounding it is... More

It is disappointing that the largest part of the waterfall is closed and has been for 3 years! It's a very easy walk to get to the first and second viewing areas. Very green and lush. The bus drops you off in the parking lot. I would definitely recommend hiking much further after the waterfall viewing area.

The town is Jiaoxi. We don't consider ourselves athletes but we walked up to the waterfall from downtown Jiaoxi and it was do-able in about 50 minutes. The air was clear and there wasn't much traffic on the road. There is also a mini-bus that goes to the park area (which is still 20 minutes away from the waterfall). Above... More

Beautiful walk up with plenty of picture opportunities. It is a let down that the highest/biggest most beautiful waterfall is closed... and has been for 3 years by the time I went so it is very doubtful that it will open anytime soon :(. There was a trail to an old Catholic Church and some private hot print sprinkled surrounding... More

I took a bus from Taipei City Hall station to Jiaoxi Bus Station. I then walked from Jiaoxi Bus Station to Wufengchi Waterfall trail. Overall, it was about a 2 mile or 3 kilometer walk. The trail itself was relatively easy with some beautiful views of the different waterfalls. However, the must do was Sacred Mountain Peak at the end... More

Took bus from Jiaoxi Railway station to Wufengchi waterfall. We only went level 1 & 2 waterfall, last level closed due to rain. Just take it as a morning walk.
