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

Our tour bus took us to the top section / source of this waterfall and we followed the boardwalk to watch the various sections of this interesting waterfalls. This is a very popular spot and always crowded with tourists and locals who walked and took photos of the scenic waterfalls.

Waterfalls like you will see nowhere else in the world. Just stunning scenery in a supper clean national park. Very organized with busses transporting you every where. Loved it if you are into nature, not to be missed.

These falls are truly beautiful. Very wide, they just keep on going even beyond what you can see at first. It is a very popular spot so you can expect crowds.

The pearl shoals is a 500meter broad steam, very shallow and flowing through pale rocks and stubby vegetation. It ends in a waterfall which is accessible by crossing to the opposite bank along the broadwalk. Dont miss the waterfall. (Involves climbing up and down 50 or so steps.)

The frozen Pearl Shoal Waterfalls in December are amazing, they are like mini glaciers with water streaming through the ice that make the entire setpiece come alive. Loved it.

We proceeded to Pearl Shoals after visiting 5 Flowers Lake. We could see shallow waters rushing over the 160m wide travertine shelf, creating a noisy bubbling cascade which when seen from a distance, looks like a shawl of pearls draped across the hillside. We proceeded down the walkway, which was just next to the waters, making the walkway wet and... More

This was one of the highlights for me, in my visit to Jui Zhai Gou park, I can see why it is the most photographed attraction. Standing at the top of the waterfall you can feel the force and energy building as it releases the water down to the river below. A very pleasant walk down the steps next to... More
