The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Sandiaoling Train Station (Google Map Directions) and finished at the Houtong Train Station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 7.8km (4.8mi) in about 6hr (can be done much quicker but I spent plenty of time taking photos)
  • Grade: Medium. Most the hike is rather easy (the Hegu and Motian waterfalls are simple to access), but it was a bit slippery and muddy in places due to the rain. The grade increased to medium due to some short but steep climbs beyond Motian Waterfall (which were a bit tougher for me due to the rain). After the waterfalls, the path is simple except for a few areas which involve walking over slippery rocks (luckily people have placed long ropes along the trail to help).
  • Date Walked: 3rd of December 2015

The Story

It doesn't matter if it's raining when you are chasing waterfalls, but it does matter when you are chasing cats. A hike with amazing waterfalls, lush forest, mining history and plenty of cats.
