Create an itinerary including Shifen Waterfall
Observe nature at its best at Shifen Waterfall. Surrounded by the thick forest, you can witness the power of water as it falls from the tall rocks into the green pool below. You'll have the chance to light a paper lantern and send it out into the sky--with a wish--watch as it flies over the waterfall. Wear footwear with good grip, as the path can get pretty wet around this spot. Take a break at the visitor center, where you can enjoy a meal or some liquid refreshment. Our New Taipei journey maker website makes visiting Shifen Waterfall and other New Taipei attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Plan on coming? The waterfall is so beautiful to look at it, its not a long walks, around 20-35 minutes from the train station depending on your speeds and if you stop for something. You may also rent motorcycle from to go over. The food stall near is nice but slightly over-price, same goes for the beverage price! Do buy the Ping-Xi Line one-day Pass to enjoy the fullest!
  • Wonderful waterfall. It’s about 600m walking from visitor center. The trail is so stunning and we got to cross 2 suspension bridge. There are various spots to enjoy the waterfall that offer different view. Next to the waterfall is a row of shop selling souvenirs and taiwan traditional food.
