Hike to Wulai Waterfall

1.2 Miles Round Trip - 100 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Wulai Town Center - Search Nearby - Added by Sachith Siriwardane

Easy, family-friendly hike to a beautiful waterfall right outside Taipei.

Wulai is super accessible from Taipei, with public buses going directly to the town (Bus 849). Once in town, walk down Wulai Old Street until you reach the bridge. After crossing the bridge, you should see signs for Wulai Waterfall; the trailhead begins there. 

The actual hike is SUPER easy. The trail winds with the river for about 2 kilometers before reaching a pavilion with a view of Wulai Waterfall. It's more of a path than a trail, so hiking boots are hardly necessary. Once you get to the waterfall, there's a restaurant where you can enjoy the view, as well as public bathrooms and souvenir shops.

What I Wish I Knew:

  • Go super early or go super late, we went right around sunset and had the place to ourselves. It can get super busy since the hike isn't too hard.
  • Check with locals/online to see if the waterfall is open - Wulai has been a frequent victim of typhoons, which have caused a number of closures.
  • There's a shave ice right by the bridge that is phenomenal. Treat yo self.
