Yuanyang Valley Waterfall

Yuanyang Valley Waterfall (中文版: 鴛鴦谷瀑布) is a pleasant 1.8km hike up a paved road in Hsinchu County, Jianshi Township (新竹縣尖石鄉). The path is actually Hsinchu Route 58 (竹58), but it's been closed to cars and turned into a pedestrian only walking path. After 1800 meters, a marked path takes you on a 2 minute walk through the forest to a wide view platform. From where you can climb and down swim in the waterfall.
