Lonely Planet review
About 4km past Wulai Waterfall is this recreation area (popularly known as Wawagu, which translates as 'Valley of the Frogs'). This place is wonderful enough to make it worth a dedicated trip. It's particularly enchanting on a chilly winter's day.
The main attractions are the broadleaf and cedar forests, the bird and insect life (and the occasional monkey), and the three-tiered Hsinhsian Waterfall (Xìnxián Pùbù), one of the most gorgeous in the north.
There's only one main trail through the reserve, so you can't miss it. It starts near the first tier of the falls and leads up a series of steps and switchbacks through a broadleaf forest. At the top it connects to a dirt logging road that runs through thick cedar forests.
If you don't have a vehicle you can walk to Neidong from Wulai without much trouble in about an hour. Take the pedestrian walkway or the minitrain to the end of the line and then make your way to the main road. After you pass through a small tunnel, cross a bridge to the left and follow the almost unused road on the other side upstream to Neidong.
