Know More about this tour

The stunning waterfalls and areas of outstanding natural beauty at Pingxi, Shifen and Juifen are must-see highlights for any Taipei traveler. On this private tour you can enjoy them all, plus you can experience some off-the-beaten-track delights that only locals know about. Like the abandoned mines and deserted railway stations, places that Mother Nature is quietly reclaiming. Follow the sound of a whistling kettle to an old miners cafe where water for tea has boiled non-stop for 60 years. This is an area of dazzling beauty and awesome history.

Your private host can guide you to the famous waterfalls and also show you the surprises that lie beyond. Surprises that could never be found in a tourist guide book. Take a drive through the mountains, a hike up a hidden waterfall, and a stroll across a 128 meter suspension bridge.

But lets get back to the stunning falls. As you approach Shifen Waterfall youll hear the thunder of the gushing river before you see the giant unbroken sheet of white water crashing onto the rocks below. On sunny days, the mists create rainbows in the blue skies.

At the Golden Waterfall the naturally-occurring heavy metals in the riverbed turn the flowing water into a breathtaking glowing gold color. The contrast of the deep green grass at the waterfalls head makes a truly magical visual experience. Not surprisingly, this area of natural beauty is a photo favorite among local newly-weds.

After all the natural beauty and history its time to top off your tour with a view of the incredibly ornate Ah Mei Tea House. Why wait in line when your local host can guide you to the perfect seat to gaze out on the beautiful coastline? All you need to do is enjoy the view while munching on a delicious local treat: a Taro dessert served with shaved ice.

The local hosts on your private tour have all been carefully selected to share unique insights and personal anecdotes with you! Also, ask as many questions as you want. Take a look at the videos and choose the local you like the most.

Want to adjust your private experience to your preferences? No problem let your host know what you would like to see or do and your private host will do his/her best to make it happen. Enjoy!
