Standing at 20 m tall and 40 m wide Shi Fen Waterfall  Park 十分 瀑布公园  was one of the places we visited during the Valentine’s Weekend in Taiwan.  I have a passion for waterfalls  and showcased some mini ones last week.

Nicknamed the ” Little Niagara” this waterfall is a very popular stop along the historic  Pingxi Railroad. There is even a train stop at the waterfall itself.

It takes about an hour drive from Taipei and we started our journey bright and early after breakfast that day.

There was three different spots to view the waterfall from.  At the first viewing platform we could only see the top of the falls as there were rather tall trees blocking my view.

From the 1st viewing place we walked to the 2nd. This one was lower down from the 1st and gave us a wider view of the falls.

Looking at the water cascading over the rocks was a really magnificent sight.

Ducks and Waterfalls

While we were admiring the tulips at  Tao yuan Shien Valley I came across these ducks which were enjoying the scenery .  It was really interesting to see them waddling around as they headed towards a nearby pond.

This particular duck must love to post for pictures as it  kept stopping in front of me so that I can take it’s picture.

If you were wondering where the ducks were waddling towards. This was the place that they were going for a dip.  Doesn’t it look lovely?

It was really nice to see so many waterfalls  in one place.  They really compliment the blooming tulips that were specially grown around the landscape feature.

It would certainly be great to  have such a feature in my backyard if I do have the opportunity to stay in a landed property with a big garden. Sipping tea there in the afternoon would be heavenly.

Don’t the flowers look absolutely lovely put in between the cascading waterfall?

Tulips and waterfalls- the perfect combination.
