Daliangshui (大冷水)

NT West

Trip Description

This stream is the brother of Qingdai(清大石澗) . Both streams share a common lower stream. Both streams are of similar difficulty and of similar geographical construction. Water is clean with swimable water pools. It is however, there is rubbish dumping landfill in the delta area of Daliangshui (大冷水). If the wind direction is right, stream hikers will be attacked by very stinky smell especially in the early part of the stream. Besides that, this stream is also very close a Firing Range (練靶場), sometimes you will hear gun fire. Good Luck.
