Taiwan: Golden Waterfall

Golden Waterfall, which is located along the Jinshui Highway near the Jinguashi mining area in Taiwan, also appears a golden-yellow in color due to the large quantities of iron in the stream water. The iron minerals have been oxidized to a golden-yellow sand, which accumulates in the stream bed. This sand sparkles like gold in the sunlight, giving the waterfall its name.
