Okay, we are returning to the site of our long march down the cystal clear, garbage free Daxi River.
This time we will start at the other side and river trace up to the beautiful waterfall and pool we found. I expect the hike to take around 2 hours up and the same back. The river is shallow and mostly flat (with small to medium size rocks in it) so it’s an easy walk up with river shoes.
The waterfall is a gorgeous 8 metre fall. There looked to be a lovely large pool at it’s base but we didn’t get a close look. There were a few smaller pools up a narrow gorge just above the falls. Rat and I explored the gorge a bit. I would like to explore it more.
In all, it’s a splendid area and we likely won’t see another person as the trail is completely overgrown, making the river the only way in and out.
Chris and Kitty have a car and can take 5. After me, that leaves two more. They can decide who they will take. If people have a scooter they can take it. It’s about 1.5 hours from Muzha along the 106 and then a lovely mountain road that sees almost no traffic.
If we can’t get more than one car people can take a train out to Daxi and we’ll pick them up. The trailhead is only a few kilometres from the train station.
Looks to be a great day out in pristine nature. Don’t miss out.
