For long years I had wanted to see this Golden Waterfall personally, one of the most popular tourist attractions in New Taipei, Taiwan. Luck came finally, I got lucky and my long wish has been granted. It was a windy winter month of December and temperature drops 10°C cold throughout Ruifang District. On a half day free we managed to hit Ruifang attractions, we headed to this place. The ”Golden waterfall” it is one of the suggested ideal itineraries not to be missed, we arrived at viewpoint overlooking the beautiful waterfalls and I was refreshed by the blast of natural beauty, it was gold in color and water looks crystal clean but not knowing what I’d find.
The honest truth, I later discovered the natural beauty I’m referring to is a toxic waterfall, it contain a high level of toxicity due to toxic wastes and chemicals from factories potentially harmful contaminants. It is beautiful gold in color as the result of frequent rainfall near mining sites and the heavy metal elements deposited near riverbanks.
The grand overview of the entire waterfall, it is located in Ruifang District, New Taipei, Taiwan. We’ve been to Taiwan a couple of times but this is the first time to see these group of waterfalls. It never fails to take my breath away but it is unsafe to touch. How harmful it may be but it will always hold a special place in my heart.
