Pearl Shoal Waterfall, as well as this entire park is spectacular. It can be very crowded (there were 30,000 tourists the day we were there). Watch out for selfie sticks - they are everywhere. But still, one of the most beautiful places I have been.

Excellent and worthy oneday trip inside the Nature Reserve. Convenient bus routes connects to all the beautiful and exhilirating spots. Your day ticket includes all the scenery points. Excellent bus routes connects to each of the point of interest and you can drop-off and get on the bus in your own schedule.

From the pearl shoal bus-stop, we walked on a wooden board path along a wide beautiful stream with magnificent view of snow capped mountains and changing-color leaves. It's a mere few hundreds meters until we arrive at the Pearl Shoal Waterfalls which was crowded with visitors but I managed to take quite a few shots. There a toilet facility by... More

Fantastic view of the waterfall. very crowded. Gushing waterfall and the sound was amazing. Be prepared to cover your expensive cameras as there's lots of moisture around.

We started at the top where a beautiful stream with vegetation is flowing towards the cliffs. The view changes as you descend down the stairs and the amazing waterfalls come into view. The waterfalls are pretty wide and we could get pretty close to them. It's a popular attraction, so expect lots of local crowd but you'll get your turn... More

Nothing special except the topmost part & the downstream of the falls are more captivating. Too much of tourist taking selfie blocks the view

If you wish to see this site of the park, it is better to walk it through. It's pleasant to in and out to the bus stop. If you wish to walk the whole way from bamboo arrow lake to Nuorilang Waterfall, you will need to start early and walk faster in order to do it within one day.

Lovely walk to the waterfall and a nice suprise as how big it is once you get there. Plenty of photo opertunities along the way. Entery as part of park fee. Buses run up and down the mountain all day so easy to get around. Plan what you want to see before you go. Our guide recommended start in the... More
