In Part I, we took a look at the beautiful waters of Wulai, and the downtown tourist and shopping area. History buffs will know that Wulai has it’s own narrow-gauge rail system, known at the Log Cart. Please click on the above photo to open a larger size for reading.
Hui-chen and I rode the Log Cart up to the waterfall area. Wulai is known for hot springs and the famous waterfall, but before we actually show you the waterfall itself, we want to show you the ride on the Log Cart.
We walked over to the station to catch the little train. In the distance you can see the cars on the track waiting for departure.
One pulled up as we were walking to the ticket window. The fare is $NT50 per adult.
Hui-chen stepped into the car and waited for me to take a few shots.
Our friend Jeff is behind Hui-chen. As you can see, there is room for 2 adults in each seat, and there are 2 seats per car.
And, we’re off! It’s a small train and it goes slow, but it’s all relative! It seems fast when you’re riding it, especially because you breeze past buildings and other structures very closely.
This shot of the track shows a bend. At this scale it’s almost scary.
Do not stick your head (or anything else) out of the car!
Through this last little tunnel (and it goes very dark!) we come to a stop at the waterfall area.
In our next article we will show you the famous waterfall. But for now, this is what it looks like when you approach from the train.
