The famous Shifen Waterfall is a NT$230 cab ride from the train station or a straightforward 30-minute walk past villages and ponds into which sky lanterns have fallen. The waterfall is quite pretty if a little underwhelming and wooden staircases allow you to view it from different angles.
Shifen Waterfall lies between Dahua Station and Shifen Station on the Pingxi Railway Line in Pingxi District, New Taipei City. Torrents of water thunder down this curtain-type fall like a white satin sheet. As the water plunges into the large, deep pool beneath, it raises mists that often enshroud the falls. On sunny days, the mists paint dazzling rainbows in the blue skies: a sight that has earned the waterfall pool the nickname of “Rainbow Pond”. Furthermore, It is the most popular tourist site in New Taipei City!
