Huang Guo Shu Waterfall is the biggest waterfall in China and the third biggest waterfall in the world, it is amazing. The ticket is at CNY180 plus the shuttle bus ticket at the price CNY50. The area is wonderful and natural, the only thing which not perfect was there were too many people, probably because August is the high season... More

There are many beautiful waterfalls in the area, you can enjoy them all via relatively easy trail hiking. The main fall is spectacular and it is interesting to look at it from under/behind it. Since this is one of the main tourist attractions, it can get real crowed if you go in the summer.

The 3 most famous waterfalls in China, are Hukou upon Yellow River, one in the Lushan Mountai, and Huangguoshu. The Huangguoshu itself is not very grandeur in scale, compared to the Niagara Falls. Depends on the season and weather, the Fall may seem greater or much thinner. Huangguoshu literally means yellow-fruit-tree, a kind of local fruit looking like a citron... More

We arrived here at Anshun by train from Kunming at around 0530hr. Approached by a driver who offered to take us to Huangguoshu Fall for RMB100 return trip n including taking us to 3 sights. It was a deal. Reached the Fall at 0730hrs and it was great as hardly any tourist around. Visit the three sights took us almost... More

This is being rated a 5A tourist spot in CHINA; and the biggest waterfall in Asia. Many tourists both Locals and Overseas will visit Guiyang or Anshun just to view the FALLS. The infrastructure is still being built, and improved. There are many tour agents offering packaged day tour from either GUIYANG or ANSHUN. The price is about Chinese yuen... More

The fall is one the famous waterfalls in PRC. It locates in the Zhenning County, Anshun city of Guizhou. It took about 2 hours of drive by highway from Guiyang. However, the traffic condition in Guiyang city was usually jammed, specially the peak hours. It is not recommended to travel the fall during the months from December to March because... More

A visit to Guiyang would be incomplete without an excursion to Huangguoshu Falls, perhaps the largest waterfall in China. The park with the falls is very nicely organized with trails all around the falls, both top and bottom, front and behind. The falls produces a large mist, which apparently often has a rainbow, but this was not present on the... More

When I visited the Huangguo Tree Falls 25 years ago, I was really impressed. This time I went there with my family again. It has been completely transformed into a very commercial place. It is said to be the highest falls in China with 78 meters height, so attracts a lot of Chinese tourists. You need to take a bus... More

We were impressed by the many falls on the river, but the last one was the most impressive, specially because over the past weeks we had so many rain the river was width and loaded with water, we wonder if it will cause problems as we have seen already many flooded roads. Very much recommended.
