Jia Jiu Liao Stream information
A popular river-tracing venue, the Jia Jiu Liao Stream features a jungle canopy worthy of a Tarzan film, a natural waterslide (滑水道) and a deep pool large enough for a group to swim in. The stream has no steep inclines and flows relatively gently, so it's pretty easy going but still great fun.
To get to the Jia Jiu Liao Stream, take a bus to Wulai and get off just past the 11.5km mark at Chenggong Village , then follow the side road down. Cross the red bridge, go over the hump and, before the second bridge, head up the stairs on the left. When obvious make your way to the stream. The first section is usually very crowded with picnickers and swimmers on summer weekends.
An average walker can reach the big swimming hole in less than an hour. The natural slide is about 100m downstream. On summer weekends you'll usually see groups here.
