Taking MRT to the Xindian Station(green line) and then take the GR12 bus to Yinhedong.
When you get off the bus, continuing to walk up the road, you will see the Yinhe Cave Cross-Ridge Trail sign and Buddha statue on your left side, then cross the road to walk in Yin-he Rd.. It takes about 20-25 mins to get to the start of the trail. It’s a good way to warm up before hiking.

Yinhe Cave Hiking Trail
-> This part needs rearranging to make a small intro to then align the info story like TE while using the images to build structure- (before I can slot the images in) – use the info below, along with all else…!
-> Note: can we use the images the same way TE did? menu style? try to see…
We started from Fude Temple, follow the sign pointed, you’ll see hiking trail entrance in few minutes.
Here you go
Pass through a flat short walk, we start to go up. Here is a sign to caution the wet floor especially after heavy rains.
When you’re in the halfway, you can sit on the stone, drink some water and take a break.
We chat with each other and enjoy forest bath, we don’t even feel tired and found that we’re here, then stunning scene came into our view.
Yinhe Cave having an outline that curves inwards on the cliff where Yinhe Cave Waterfall drops at a 90-degree angle from. It’s pity that we didn’t see the majestic waterfall since it didn’t rain for a while, it’s better to visit there after heavy rain for more impressive views.
It takes us 15-20 mins from trail entrance to Yinhe Cave. It’s fairly easy hike which makes an idea place for couples, friends and families. If you would like more of a challenging hike, you can continue on to the Maokong Gondola and take MRT when you leave.
The Best Photo Spots
The well-known photo shooting angle is to stand on a platform protruding from the temple, where the waterfall and cliffs are connected in a line and seems just next to you.
However, we went there in the weekend, it takes us 10 mins to wait for the photo shooting.
The small temple built on the cliff to worship the Lu Dongbin (呂洞賓), one of the Eight Immortals. You will find octagon window which it’s another photo spot, you can see Xindian views trough the window. It gives you an extraordinarily beautiful but hidden view.
Pass through the temple, you’ll find the others idea photo spots, you can see the full extent.
When you stopped at behind the waterfall, it pours down and spouts beautiful splashes.
Leaving By Bus
If you’re leaving Yinhe Cave by bus, then backtrack to the bus stop, but remember that it’s on the other side of the bus stop which you came.
It’s a pretty decent steamed dumpling restaurant that we often visit when we’re in the area. – I recommend it to everyone!
