Tiefen Waterfall (鐵汾瀑布) is an unexpectedly wonderful waterfall in a small mostly unused recreation area. They have started improving the recreation area with camping platforms (cost unknown) and nice bathrooms.
Rating and length – no hike
Accessibility – small but good road – will need to walk in water to reach the waterfall
How to get there – Take the 193 north from Yuli and turn right (east) down an alley in the first small town (km marker 405-406). There is an obscure sign in Chinese for the waterfall. Follow the road and turn left at a T intersection. Take the 2nd left downhill and turn right at the bathrooms. It is 1.5 kms from the main road.
Mass transit options – I have not done this but bus 1135 departs every from Yuli. Get off at Tiefen Bus Stop (鐵汾) and you can walk 1+ km to the waterfall on a nice countryside road. You will want to check the times for the last bus and make sure you are not late.
The hike – There is no hike here. Follow the creek upstream 100m and climb up the 1 meter high retaining wall.
Seasonality – possibly dry from Jan-Apr and other longer periods with no rain
Other info – platform camping with bathrooms available
