The site we visited today is a mouthful – Double Dragon Waterfall Rainbow Suspension Bridge (雙龍瀑布七彩吊橋). The Double Dragon refers to the double waterfalls, and the rainbow suspension bridge is the longest in Taiwan. The town that it’s located in is named after the two waterfalls – 雙龍 in Nantou (南投) area, about an hour fifteen minute drive from Xitou (溪頭). How we happened upon this place was by pure happenstance. I had wanted to see what was in the area, and as I was scanning the Sun Moon Lake region on Google maps, the photo icon for this place appeared on the map. Always a sucker for waterfalls and suspension bridges, I decided to check it out.
We first had to buy tickets online ahead of time, likely for crowd control reasons as they only allow 250 people on the bridge at once. The bridge is closed Wednesdays for regular safety inspections. Tickets are 100NT ($3.50) for adults and 30NT ($1) for seniors.
I would say this is worth a stop if you’re in the area like Sun Moon Lake, but probably not worth traveling to just to see it. I can imagine it being a popular Instagram spot, but I’d hate to see the site spoiled by the crowd.
