  Within the county, there are two main rivers and they are Wu River and Zhuoshui River. Wu River originates on the west side of Hehuanshan of the Central Range. The flow discharge of the river is abundant and the branches flow through Puli, Guoxin, Renai, Nantou, Zhongliao and Mingjian. Zhuoshui River gained its name as the water is muddy. It originates at Zuojiujian Saddle which is in between the main peak and the eastern peak of Hehuanshan. It is the longest river in Taiwan. The branches flow through Zhushan, Jiji, Shuili, Xinyi, Lugu, Yuchi and Renai. It is the river with the highest potential water power in Taiwan.
