Taiwan Waterfalls (臺灣的瀑布 [Táiwān de pùbù]) seemed like pretty common features in this island republic that harbored very tall mountains and steep gorges. We figured that one could spend a lifetime trying to visit the various Taiwanese Waterfalls while experiencing some of the island’s more off-the-beaten track locales.
Indeed, even our humble sampling of waterfalls in Taiwan that we showcase on this page pretty much covers the entire island. At the very least, exploring Taiwan while chasing waterfalls brought me back to my roots for most of my immediate relatives call this island home.
Finally, like what I’ve done with the China Waterfalls page, I’ve incorporated Chinese characters in many of the waterfall names as well as other important place names. However, since Taiwan uses traditional characters [fántǐzì or 繁体字] as opposed to simplified characters [jiǎntǐzì or 简体字], I’ll be using the traditional characters here.
In addition to the Chinese characters, I’ve also provided pronunciation aids using the pinyin system [pīnyīn or 拼音], which originated in China. While some Taiwanese purists may think this is blasphemy, I’ve learned that the Taiwanese Romanizations of Chinese were pretty confusing and inaccurate. At least with the pinyin Romanization, you’ll have a better shot at being understood if you’re trying to ask for directions or verbalize some of the names of these waterfalls (especially if you understand the tones).
