Shifen Falls

Shifen is well known for the Shifen Waterfall (十分大瀑布), a 40 metre tall waterfall that creates a
rainbow as it splashes into the lake, widely regarded as the most scenic in all of Taiwan. The train station
located down the river from the waterfall area, originally built for transporting coal, was built right
alongside the Shifen Old Streets (十分老街), and today stands as a reminder of Taiwan’s history and
culture. With the marketplace surrounding the train station and the openness in which people can freely
cross the tracks running straight through the centre of town, the marketplace area of Shifen is definitely
an interesting place for visitors to check out.

The waterfall is located 30 minutes away from Shifen Old Streets by walking along either side of the
tracks in the northeast direction.
