Eagle God's Waterfall

Eagle God's Waterfall (中文: 神鷹瀑布) is a fun and easy to get to, five tier, roadside waterfall in Layi. It's literally right next to the road, there is no hiking required. (For tiers 1 and 2, tier 3 you have to climb to.) Eagle God's Waterfall swells to unswimmable proportions after a heavy rain, yet completely dries up in the winter. The best time to go is from the first heavy rain (May-June) until around February.

Tier 1:
Tier one is the most popular, because I think most people who go there don't know about tiers two and three. It can be seen from the main road, and is a good place to relax and have some beers. It's a popular place local swimming hole, and it's got a nice jump.

Tier 2:
Tier is also right next to the road, but it's a different road. To get there take the small street opposite the bridge up the hill. After about 2 minutes, you'll see the waterfall. The water here is not as deep as it is in Eagle God's One. It's still a nice place to cool off. There used to be a temple built until the waterfall, but most of it has since been washed away.
