Knifetail River Waterfall (中文版：尖刀尾溪瀑布) is a beautiful waterfall in Pingtung, Laiyi Township. Although it's located about 2700 meters from the parking area, the Knifetail River has a very minor gradient and there is no significant elevation change on the way to the waterfall. Most of the way is relatively flat.
Close to the waterfall there is a deep channel which would be difficult to swim past at high water levels. A path on the south side of the river will take you over the canyon and around this section.
The pool below the waterfall is large, but relatively shallow (around 2 meters) and is a nice place to swim.
If you wish to continue adventuring beyond the Knifetail River Waterfall, there is tributary river coming in from the north just before the waterfall. There are several large waterfalls up this river, but the route is steeper and may require climbing equipment.
