Sandiaoling is a tiny village located near the beginning of the Pingxi Branch Rail Line. This moderately strenuous hike passes by some four waterfalls, each one more impressive than the next. One of the waterfalls, Motian Waterfall, even has a small cove cut into the back of it where hikers can crawl through to gain an interesting view from behind the curtain of water.

What to explore at Sandiaoling Water Fall Hike Trip?

For this hike we typically take the train due to the remote location of the beginning of the hike.  However private transport can be arranged if requested.  The hike typically takes around 4-5 hours which gives us plenty of time to explore the town of Shifen at the end of the hike.  You’ll often see people here setting off lanterns that the area is famed for.
