    Maolin Valley

Location: Situated east of Maolin village at the junction of the Jhuokou River and its tributary, the Musheng River.

Maolin Valley was originally called Luomusih, which means "beautiful valley" in the Rukai language. It is known for its Maolin Valley Falls, located on the banks of Musheng River. It is about an hour's walk upstream from the junction of Jhuokou. The Musheng River's water level rises dramatically after every rainy weather, so the waterfall is likely to be the most spectacular during the wet season, normally from April to October. The water collects in a deep blue lake below the falls before joining the Jhuokou River. The scenery along the coast of the river is unique and filled with natural characteristics, for example, visitors can hear the endless sounds of insects and birds. It is about a 1hr distance from blue lake to upstream of the waterfall and it is an ideal route for hiking.
