There are various waterfalls and treks in this area all of which are fantastic. Recommend the 9 Dragons Falls walk in particular.

Hike was fairly easy, typical of China.....paved path, maybe about a mile or so. Lots of photo opps. Nice ending at the waterfall....note photo only shows top half. Much more water cascading when we went (Sept). Beautiful town, less touristy than Fenghuang.
