Cigong Waterfall for Christmas
For Christmas this year I went to what is probably Taiwan’s southernmost waterfall near Jialeshui. I didn’t have high expectations for this waterfall because it’s rarely mentioned. Although it wasn’t physically impressive it was a nice relaxing area. Unfortunately this seems like the kind of area that is overrun with strange Taiwanese men in their speedos and hordes of children on summer weekends. On Christmas day however all seven waterfalls (Ci = 7 and gong = hole) were mine.
This wasn’t a good start but at least the trail was hikeable.
There wasn’t a lot of water but just enough for the waterfalls and no wet feet.

It’s difficult to see how steep this is but the ropes should give you an idea.

The 6th tier
The 7th tier was kind of anti-climatic
