What you can expect

The stunning waterfalls and areas of outstanding natural beauty at Pingxi, Shifen and Juifen are must-see highlights for any Taipei traveller. On this private tour you can enjoy them all, plus you can experience some off-the-beaten-track delights that only locals know about. Like the abandoned mines and deserted railway stations, places that Mother Nature is quietly reclaiming. Follow the sound of a whistling kettle to an old miners’ cafe where water for tea has boiled non-stop for 60 years. This is an area of dazzling beauty and awesome history.

Your private host can guide you to the famous waterfalls and also show you the surprises that lie beyond. Surprises that could never be found in a tourist guide book. Take a drive through the mountains, a hike up a hidden waterfall, and a stroll across a 128 metre suspension bridge.

But let’s get back to the stunning falls. As you approach Shifen Waterfall you’ll hear the thunder of the gushing river before you see the giant unbroken sheet of white water crashing onto the rocks below. On sunny days, the mists create rainbows in the blue skies.

After all the natural beauty and history it’s time to top off your tour with a view of the incredibly ornate Ah Mei Tea House. No need to wait in line when your own local host can guide you to the perfect seat to gaze out on the beautiful coastline. All you need to do, however, is enjoy the view while munching on a delicious local treat: a Taro dessert served with shaved ice.

The local hosts on your private tour have all been carefully selected to share unique insights and personal anecdotes with you! Also, ask as many questions as you want.

We are looking forward to having you in this private day trip!
