Beautiful waterfall
Mar 2017 • Family
It's a lovely walk to get to the waterfall, with a path you can easily follow. I was glad to see that the place had not been over-commercialized like some other nature attractions in China are. I would take a hat or umbrella if it's a very sunny day as it can get quite hot (a water bottle too). On your way back you can buy yourself a fresh coconut or sugarcane to munch on. It was a nice quiet walk when we went, with not that many people besides us (can't imagine what it must be like if it's very busy as some of the rocks can be a bit slippery so take care).

Nature Made Easy...
Apr 2015 • Family
This, like a few other places we visited in China, has been modified from it's natural form to make it very visitor accessible. So you are in the heart of a rain forest, high up a mountain visiting the largest waterfall in Hainan - and it's all very easy - even for an 8 year old. Once you come to terms with that it is enjoyable (if not very adventurous). We visited this place en route from the Hilton Double Tree in Baoting to Seashells Guesthouse in Sanya and accessed it by taking a taxi from the hotel, having it wait 3 hours for us, then taking us to Lingshui train station. Not cheap - 600 CYN - but really the only option if you don't have a car because there is no public transport and the start of the waterfall is a long drive up the mountain. There is a car park (no hotel or restaurant so maybe we were in a different spot from the previous reviewer?) then a short walk to the top of the steps. There are 1700 steps and these lead to the waterfall. Myself and my daughter were a little bemused after a 30 minute descent in humid heat to find at the end simply a viewing platform and a rather small trickle of water! We went in April so maybe that's not the best time as it does look much more impressive in other photos I've seen including the ones on here. So all in all a pleasant day out - hard to say more than that really - will post photos - they might help...! PS Many attempts later still unable to get the photos to post - sorry

Diaolou Mountain Park
Mar 2014 • Solo
The park is located just north of Lingshui, Hainan. You head north from Lingshui on the road to Wushishan and there is an exit with a sign after about 10 km. Then after about another 15 km you will come to a yellow village. Every building is yellow. This is the entrance to the park. At the end of the village the road appears to turn into a driveway but this is still the main road, now one lane. It heads uphill another 4-5 kms and there is a gate where you pay a 20RMB entrance fee. Foreigners need a passport copy. The road keeps climbing up another 13 kms and up to 5,000'. Finally you arrive at a hotel, restaurant, lake and mountain rain forest trail. There are fish in the lake. The trail is concrete and goes back through the jungle more than 1 km, through babbling brooks and over hill and dale. It seems to go on forever. Maybe it does. By 4pm I could hear the thunder getting very close and I was on a bicycle with a 3 1/2 hour ride in front of me to get home so I turned back without finding out what was at the far end of the trail. If you go by bicycle as I did, bring rain gear in your back pack. At 5,000' the temp is 10C cooler than Lingshui and when it rains the rain is heavy and comes from 15,000' so it is very cold. If you want to get out of the city and into the jungle with no one around, this is the place. Rained so hard on the way down the mountain that the water killed my I-Phone so no pictures I'm afraid.
