      Route:From take the prescribed shuttle bus to the Sanyintan pools transit station. This stop is about 10 minutes up the hill from the , and you’ll pass by the big Golden Buddha at . Cross the road from the bus stop and go through the ticket check for Sanyintin Waterfalls. There is one main well made path that is clearly signposted for the whole walk. After just a few minutes, steps lead you down to the first sight – the . This is a very modest temple, but the waterfall here has some power. From here you will snake around the wooden path to walk over the water and continue along and down for about 15 minute to the .
       
      (continued)After taking a minor side step to see the , continue along the path and steps down for a further 20 minutes to the . Here you can get a good spray from the falling water.

At the lower waterfall you’ll cross the bridge (taking in the view) and continue down. Continue on down for a further 20 minutes and you will reach the small but fairly high . After another 25 or so minutes, you will come down farther and reach the to board the 10 minute monorail. At this point you have little choice but to pay for the monorail to get you to the next point in the path, or you need to return the way you came. There is apparently an emergency service path that can be taken for free; however, we were refused access during our visit.

Here you can either cross the bridge to take a cable car up to the Miaogao Terrace and , or take the steps on the left before the waterfall. These steps are fairly steep and last for about 15 minutes. Following the path passed the terrace you will soon reach with its iconic inside. You’ll be able to catch the bus back to the just outside this temple.

      Top Descriptions

      This is probably more of a family friendly excursion rather than a hike, with much of the walk being downhill. The paths here have been built to guide visitors around the main sites with relative ease, and on a very quiet day it may feel quite like being in peaceful nature on this walk. However, there are clear indications of manmade design and the one-path-for-all through the area removes any real sense of adventure.

      Top Tips

      This is very much a manicured and touristic walking site – do not expect any exciting hiking. However, this does mean amenities such as toilets are frequent and you can find some hot Chinese snacks on offer at the before you are forced onboard the monorail.
      During a national holiday this place is unsurprisingly crowded and not recommended. It is impossible to walk at a decent pace, and long queues for things such as the monorail are quick to form.
      Only is of any real note here, so perhaps as an alternative to this walking route you could bus directly to the and walk down and then back up.
