There are three waterfalls in Caoling : Shuiliandong Waterfall , Penglai Waterfall and Tongsin Waterfall. In summertime you can see the majestic waterfalls and you can see an elegant trickle in winter.

Shuiliandong Waterfall is bigger than Penglai Waterfall. The reason is that Qingshui River has more water. So erosion is stronger and faster that forms an uneven terrain.

Potholes are cylindrical holes drilled into the bed of a river that vary in depth & diameter from a few centimetres to several metres . When flowing water encounters bedload , it is forced over it and downcuts behind the bedload in swirling eddie currents. These currents erode the river’s bed and create small depressions in it. Among the new ten scenic spots in Caoling, it is most easy to observe the potholes in Shibi Fairy Valley, Liansin Pothole and Lianjhu Pothole.



The Wannian Canyon is eroded by Neihu River. The river sometimes hides in two stories deep canyon. Other times, it suddenly appears on the open river bed, flowing at your feet, like playing hide and seek!

Neihu River is named after a water eel flowing over the stratum, so Neihu River also called ‘ S híhmanzih River’.
