Touring Wulai in a log cart or the gondola
When you come to Wulai, you must take the Wulai log cart, which is the only existing log cart railway in Taiwan! The Wulai log cart was used to transport logs, and was converted into a tourism cart in 1963. Passengers can enjoy the scenery of the forested mountains in the open carriages. The Wulai Waterfall is located at the terminal station where you may see the Wulai Waterfall up close and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere when you’re surrounded by the mountains and waterfall.
After arriving at the Waterfall Station, you can transfer to the Wulai Gondola. As the gondola ascends you can overlook Wulai in the air and get a panoramic view of the waterfall. Yun Hsien Resort is the gondola's terminal station. Visitors can stay a night for activities like guided frog-viewing tours at night or a boat ride on a lake.
