  • Address:The waterfall is 1.2km away from Suinandong on the Jinsui Highway, Ruifang Dist., New Taipei City View on Map
There is a mystical waterfall on the way to Joufen, where the bottom and stream bed, and the rocks are all coated in gold. The flow that rushes down to the bottom shines with gold, giving it a surreal feeling. The Golden Waterfall's golden creek bed and rocks were formed because of the mining activities from an earlier era. During those times, mining caused an acidic mine drainage, with those minerals oxidizing after being exposed to oxygen and changing into a golden color. So visitors, please refrain from playing in this water because it contains large amounts of minerals that may be harmful to the body. There's a small parking lot here, so park your car and snap a few photos: it definitely is a memorable place!
