Wufengchi Waterfall 五峰旗瀑布 is one of the eight scenic areas of the Lanyang plains within Jiaoxi township, Yilan county, Taiwan.
As the name suggest, Wufengchi Waterfall or more aptly, Wufengqi waterfall is literally translated into five peak flags to represent the five sharp peaks behind the falls which resembles Chinese flags which Generals of the past uses to guard their territory during war time.
Wufengchi waterfall is a series of three different waterfalls descending vertically into a pool below with a total waterfall height of 100m.
The entrance to stairway of Wufengchi waterfall is at the lowest waterfall which takes a mere 5min hike while progressively, the middle waterfall takes 15mins while the highest waterfall requires a good 30mins hike up. With effort comes better rewards, while the lowest waterfall is a tranquil stream of water flowing into the massive pool of water suitable for children to dip into, the middle tiered waterfall is pretty soothing to the ears with the splattering droplets and the highest waterfall is comparable to a burst pipe with water gushing out with huge force slapping itself onto the massive pool beneath.
Be sure to catch Wufengchi waterfall in action with the grandeur three tiered waterfall while in the vicinity.
