    Dajin Waterfall

The Dajin Waterfall, also known as A-wu Waterfall, Weiliao Waterfall, or Xinfeng Waterfall, is located near the 2km mark of County Highway No. 185. Its entrance can be found inside Xinfeng Village of Gaoshu County.

The waterfall is about 20 meters in height, with water cascading down from the top vertically, like a piece of white silk hanging down from the cliff from above. The waterfall itself is divided into five tiers. The first two tiers can be easily accessed by a hiking trail with densely grown trees creating shades alongside, so the two tiers of waterfalls at the bottom attract many tourists. The valley accommodating the waterfall is narrow but surrounded by trees. Walking around, tourists can listen to the sound of flowing water and appreciate the magnificence of the waterfall. They can also walk to a pavilion on a high ground, where they can gaze at the green field of Pingtung, a picturesque sight that you don’t ever want to miss.

Visitors are recommended to spend about an hour here. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to reach the waterfall, excluding the time for breaks. The third to the fifth tier of the waterfall is hidden deep in the forest and thus difficult to reach. Those who wish to reach the upper part of the waterfall should be fully equipped and be mindful of their own safety. They should also beware of snakes and insects that they might encounter during the hike.

    to go to the waterfall, must drain extra energy. very tiring..when I went there happened to be very crowded, too many visitors so it was like I couldn't move.. but this place is good, I like it.

    Nice place, behind the temple you can find the trail entrance, which is around 800 meters long and goes uphill all the way to the waterfall. Path is under construction in 2017 October.
