Passion Valley Canyon (中文版:至情谷) is a series of beautiful waterfalls in Kaohsiung, Maolin District. Getting into the canyon requires crossing the main river, which may not be possible in the summer and fall. Although hiking to the waterfall only takes about 20 minutes, to get to the second waterfall also requires swimming and climbing, proper safety precautions and equipment are advised.

The first waterfall has a beautiful deep pool, which is great for swimming in. Due to the shape of the canyon, the best time to visit is around 12pm, so that direct sunlight enters the canyon.
