Meet the Rainbow Pool
Shifen Waterfall is a ledge waterfall. The rock formations on both sides of the waterfall go against the flow of the water, which is a geological feature called the anticline structure. It is dubbed Taiwan's Niagara Falls because of the panorama similar to that of Niagara Falls in North America. The majestic stream splashes as it rushes into the extremely deep pool below the waterfall. As the sun shines on the mist, a rainbow can be seen hanging over the waterfall or pool, earning it the name "Rainbow Pool."
Admire the wonders of the waterfall from various perspectives.
There are several waterfall viewing platforms near the Shifen Waterfall. Visitors can see the wonders of the waterfall from different angles. Walk along the trail and see the emerald waters at the top of the waterfall to feel the grandness of the rushing stream, or you can have a frontal panoramic view of the waterfall from the bottom, which is the No. 1 spot for many visitors to see the waterfall and take photos.
Opening days: Every day (except for the Lunar New Year's Eve when the park will be closed for one day).
