Wizard's Waterfall (中文版:巫鎖瀑布)is a beautiful 3-tier waterfall in Hualien, Xiulin Township.  It's located up a tributary of the Papaya River. This is a wonderful place to swim and jump.  The pool is clear and at around six meters, is one of the deepest clear-water pools I've been to.  From the left side there is a 13-meter high ledge to jump off of.

Although there is a path through the forest, it's broken in some places and hiking up the river to the waterfall is generally much easier.  The first pool is easy to get to this way.  There are at least two smaller waterfalls upstream.
