Taiyao Waterfall (抬耀瀑布), Yulao (***)

It seems only possible to get to the top of the tall and impressive-looking Taiyao Waterfall (and there's apparently a third fall, downstream from it and above the magnificent  Maliguang Waterfall, on the same stream)

It seems only possible to get to the top of the tall and impressive-looking Taiyao Waterfall (and there’s apparently a third fall, downstream from it and above the magnificent Maliguang Waterfall, on the same stream)

Above Maliguang Waterfall but rarely visited, Taiyao Waterfall is at least as high and impressive, but it seems can only been seen from its head. In places the “trail” (which follows a long-abandoned water irrigation channel, contouring the sometimes sheer face of the gorge) has been washed away by small landslides, so take care.

ACCESS: Fairly easy. Trail is flat and simple to follow, but washed away in a few places, and with a long, sheer drop below on the approach to the waterfall.

Trailhead: 24.644990, 121.343960

The trail to Taiyao Waterfall follows an old irrigation ditch with a very big vertical drop into the gorge approaching the waterfall - be careful!
