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.

Fairly impressive waterfall. You can climb many stairs and enter a cave on the backside of the falls, which is worth doing. In looking at both main waterfall areas, it amounted to about 10 miles of walking and climbing the equivalent of 55 flights of stairs, so good exercise. The bonsai garden entrance through the national park to the largest... More

We took a bus from Anshun East Bus Terminal to 黄果树瀑布. After we purchased our ticket, we were swarmed by taxi drivers. Apparently, 黄果树瀑布 National Park is very big and required transport to drop us to different waterfalls. Together with a Chinese couple, we hired a taxi for RMB400 for a day. 黄果树瀑布 is one of the largest waterfalls in... More

The falls and area are beautiful. I came expecting a great day away from the hustle and bustle of cities, but that expectation was foolish. Being a Chinese tourist destination, the crowds are tremendous, pushy, rude, and overwhelming. The falls, walk, and garden area are all beautiful, but that wasn't enough to make it worth my time to visit again.

An exhausting day trip from Anshun to a site with minimal english. This place took a little navigation but at least you could walk behind the falls if you were happy to elbow people and do the Chinese penguin most of the way. I would not want to be visiting at peak time.

After getting here you have to then figure out how the park operates. Minimal english everywhere and you could easily get lost. The one plus for this place was you could walk behind the falls if you were happy to elbow your way through the masses who continuously stop making the small path impossible to walk on at times.

The HuangGuoShu Falls scenic park consists of 3 attractions: the big falls itself, the smaller DouPoTang cascades; and the TianXinQiao karst area. First, some tips from my experience: (1) The admission is 180Y, whether you choose to visit just 1 or all 3 places. If you are 60 or older, you can show your ID and get 50% off the... More
