The Der-Hsing Waterfall is honoured as the secret place of Xiou-Ban-Tien. It’s surrounded by mountains and great for a LOHAS trip to escape from trifle. You can have a Phytoncide bath here by hiking especially in summer vacation.

This waterfall is sourced from Da-Lun Mountain, and located on the Xiou-Ban-Tien Shan-Chu-Hu industrial road, and formed by the De-His-Ma rock layer.

It’s said that the Song-Wen, Lin’s army fled to the upper reaches of Der-Hsing Waterfall, the horses that carried money and foodstuff falled into the valley, this place was named as “De-His-Ma” after that. Then the Lin’s army bared the treasure with them along the way they escaped, it’s unexpected to cause a fad for treaure seeking, but there is nothing found till now. 

There are two layers of Der-Hsing Waterfall, the forest here is rich, and the rock is precipitous to form the special view. The upper layer is eroded by the river for long time then form a deep pool, the cool water in the pool is clear to see the bottom of pool and swimming shrimp and fishes. The tourists can walk along the trail to upper layer.
