The trail is being rebuilt and the waterfall is officially closed for most of 2017. There is still river access and you can reach the waterfall that way. Expect an updated guide later this year when they have completed construction.
How to the get there – Exit the 3 freeway at the Zhunan interchange. Take Hwy 149 south 10 kms to Hwy 52 and turn towards Shanpingding. There is an English sign when coming from the north. Go through the small town and stay on Hwy 52 for 5-6 kms until the road ends at the waterfall. The last 2 kms are rough but easily passable in a car.
The hike – The trail is closed for much of 2017 until they have rebuilt the trail and open a viewing platform. It is possible to access the river and get to the waterfall by walking up the river.
