Ghost Waterfall got its name because it is said that the sound of the waterfall can
... be heard yet it can not be seen. This is true in a way. Most visitors can only see the waterfall from its top rather than its whole shape from the bottom. To get to the bottom, you need to take a detour on the trail to the mainstream(Dahan River/ 大漢溪), and then river trace to the bottom of the waterfall from the fork.
Shuiliandong Waterfall has a hole behind its water curtain, and you can swim to it. The waterfall is actually a giant dam. Its big size and rectangular shape make it a nice tourist spot. Shuiliandong is a term in Mandarin for any holes behind water curtain of a waterfall, so there are shuiliandongs or shuiliandong waterfalls everywhere in Taiwan.
A common mistake is that Ghost Waterfall and Shuiliandong Waterfall are usually mixed up. The mistakes can be found on Google Map and local news. The former got its name for the saying that it is unable to be seen, while the latter is a giant dam with a hole in it.
