Houtongkeng Waterfall (侯桐坑瀑布)

Not far from Yilan County’s hot springs resort, Jiaoxi, Houtongkeng Waterfall makes a good afternoon diversion or a nice place to cool off on a hot day. The short trail makes the falls easily accessible, so it’s a good spot for a picnic or family excursion. Visitors can cool off or splash around in the water above the falls and enjoy views of the falls from several vantage points as well as views over Lanyang Plain and the coast.
