Gourd Canyon (中文版：葫蘆谷) is a narrow canyon with a few small waterfalls in Chiayi, Fanlu Township. Twenty years ago, Gourd Canyon was a very popular place, but because it's more difficult to get to now, it's seldom visited. It's a nice place for swimming and relaxing to. The entrance to the canyon is still easy to get to, but going to the waterfalls upstream requires swimming and rock scrambling.
Gourd Canyon is easy to get to.
To get past the canyon, swim upstream and climb through this small hole.
Above the canyon is this giant waterslide. It used to have hundreds of tourists every weekend, but now it's empty.
Above the waterslide are these amazing swimming holes.
