A small area with a small size waterfall. Not spectacular if compared to Shifen Waterfall in Pingxi District. Don't expect waterfall with tons of spray or get damp at look-out platform. Anyway, every location and area has something different to offer to visitors because every...More

The water fall isn't impressive and it requires a bus to get to. There is nothing nearby and you have to wait an hour for a bus. You can't pickup a taxi here either.

I walked here from Jiufen old street. It takes about 30-40 minutes via relatively well-kept stone steps and walkways. It was raining and windy due to the incoming typhoon but on a nice day I honk it would be a nice walk through Taiwanese jungle...More

This is not worth a detour. If you're driving past (it's very close to the Gold Centre) have a look, it's right next to the road, but otherwise don't bother. Our kids called it "the brown waterfall", not really up to much.

This is the least attractive waterfall I've visited. If you have private transport and are visiting Jinguashi and/or Jiufen, sure, give it a go since it's located extremely nearby. If you are taking public transport, I don't think it's worth the time and effort. Shuttle...More

Had a tour stop here, a nice waterfall! Enjoyed the view! It's a short visit, worth the stop if in the area.

With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu
(ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be
prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its
magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful
and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to
the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse
of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall.
