The Wulai region was devastated by Typhoon Soudelor in August 2015. Wulai Waterfall and Village are accessible but there might still be damage in the immediate surrounding area. (6/2016)
Wulai waterfall was the first waterfall that I photographed for this project and I need to go back and take better pictures. Wulai is best known for its hot springs but it also has an impressive waterfall. The waterfall is located on the opposite cliff of the Tonghou River. It is northern Taiwan’s highest waterfall and falls 80 meters into the Tonghou River.
How to get there – Buses (marked Wulai) leave from Xindian MRT station (every 20 mins) going to Wulai. It takes about 40 minutes to get there. From Wulai it is a 20 minute walk (about 1km) to the waterfall. You can also take a tourist train.
Other info – There are restaurants across from the waterfall. You can also extend your trip and visit Neidong Waterfall 4kms away.
