Cuilin Waterfall (中文版:翠林瀑布) is a hidden waterfall in Nantou, Yuchi Township.  The waterfall itself is not very spectacular, but the hike there though the river is very beautiful, with many smaller waterfalls along the way.  If you like river tracing, this is a great place to come for climbing up rocks and small waterfalls. Depending on how much you play, this route takes about two hours round trip. Every single small waterfall on the way has a path around it though.  If you ever get stuck, just look to the left and right for a small path to go around.  They are not always clearly marked, but they are there.
