As u can see from the photo, there isn't much water falling down. So it is more like a stream. OK to stop by after visiting Jiufen but do not bother to make it a must if your time is limited.

Our second visit to this waterfall was this summer and the view was a bit disappointing as the water flowing was not that much. We had a much better view during our first visit which was in January.

A quick stop to see mineral springs waterfall with gold colored oxidation. A visitors look out a short drive away shows the water entering the ocean creating multi colored water where the runoff meets the ocean.

That's it. There is this waterfall that you cannot go near because it is cordoned off by the platform, the bridge on the road, and a walkway that has a railing and will not allow you to approach the water. This no entry has basis,...More

King Kong mountain neighbours the falls making the setting lovely. It isn’t crowded. It is easy to get to by car. The history of the mine and pipes is interesting.

The waterfall is just by the road side. If drive, you can stop to take a pic. If you take the Fulong Golden Tourist bus, there is no need to stop and get down. You can see along the bus route.

Ruifan District
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.
