The Yufeng Spirit Pools (中文版：玉峰溪碧潭群) are a series of 8 pools on the banks of the Yufeng River, in Hsinchu, Jianshi Township. Although they vary in size throughout the seasons, satellite imagery shows that these pools have persisted for many years. Cars and motorcycles can reach the bottom of the riverbed, where it's only an easy 5-minute walk to the first pool. Both the first and second pools can be reached without having to cross the river.
There are an additional six pools further up the river. These pools are deep and great for swimming in. Getting to them requires crossing the river several times. The Yufeng River is a major river and the water level varies greatly throughout the year. Please don't attempt to cross the river when the water levels are high.
This path also passes Shuangfeng Waterfall along the way.
