The path leading to Wufengqi waterfall’s highest point (third level) was closed by Yilan County after serious damage from typhoon Soudelor in 2015. However, work to re-secure rocks on adjacent cliffs has been completed after one year since the project began, and visitors can once again enjoy this relaxing spot starting Sep. 2019.
County officials explained that rock structures in the area have developed numerous fractures and its geological composition tends to crumble, so a team of experts was called in to install cliff netting on the slopes, in order to prevent further avalanches.
Officials added that the project had begun on Dec. 10, 2018, and was completed this July, repairing 150 meters of pathway and costing NT$16 million. Cliff netting, steel bridges, railing and an observation platform for visitors were installed, and the waterfall’s third-level pathway was slated to open for visitors on Sep. 1.
