Shaonian River ​Yuanyang Waterfall​

Shaonian River Yuanyang Waterfall (中文版: 少年溪鴛鴦瀑布) is a hidden waterfall in Kaohsiung, Taoyuan District. The first tier was covered up during Typhoon Marakot, but it's now an easy, short walk to the second tier inside the canyon. The waterfall is deep and clear. It's an ideal place for swimming and jumping. Winter 2017, rocks have filled in the first pool entirely, and now you can walk directly to the 2nd tier. The path down is also significantly more difficult. Hopefully the next typhoon will empty it back out again.
