A beautiful little spot, fabulous for cooling off in summer, and reachable only by wading up a stream for 15 minutes. It’s not far from Sandiaoling railway station, but its location is an open secret (to protect the still pristine environment there), so if you want to know the way, please message me!

  1. We would really like to go here! Could you please give us some directions? Also is there any way to contact you personally about other waterfalls? Thanks.

  2. Hi William – I’ll get round to putting details on how to get to all the waterfalls on this blog eventually! Too many other things happening at the moment. As I said in the note above I’m keeping the Earth God Pool location an open secret for now, because it’s still (or at least was last time I was there) pristine, but if you drop me an email at richard0428@yahoo.com I’ll tell you the way! Cheers, Richard

  3. Apologies everyone for not replying to you (much) earlier. No excuses I’m afraid; I’m just busy and disorganized. Anyway, to get to the Earth God Pool, the easiest way is to give you the coordinates of the trialhead, a bridge across the small road right opposite Sandiaoling railway station (from the station walk down the tracks towards the railway tunnel, and right before it go up steps which join the road and turn left). From the bridge simply wade upstream (in the water – there’s no path, so take spare footwear and be careful!), and the Earth God Pool is 15-20 minutes upstream. Sorry it got cold before I got round to posting this, but hope you get to enjoy it some time!
