Ruifang District, New Taipei City 224, Taiwan (ROC)
Golden Waterfall is located near the Gold Ecological Park (黃金博物園區) in Jinguashi. Although real gold flowing from these falls would be too good to be true, the water is certainly a beautiful gold color as a result of the combination of regular rainfall in this mining area and the abundance of heavy metal elements deposited in the riverbed. The cascade of gold flowing down the hillside contrasts to the luminous green grass at its head. Indeed, the natural beauty of this place makes it a favorite for photography among newly-weds. But it’s not just star-struck lovers who will fall for this place, we guarantee impressive photographs to everyone who makes a visit.
Add to the color of your day with a visit to Yin Yang Sea (陰陽海) in the nearby Changren community (長仁社區). The name of this site refers to the two opposing principles of light and dark in Chinese philosophy, and refers to the striking contrast in the colors of the cove.
The water may be beautiful but its toxicity makes it unsafe even for touching.
