A beautiful 78-metre tall waterfall with a width of a little over 100-metres, surrounded by an enchanting mountain landscape. It is the largest waterfalls in China. The falls itself is not as grand as those of Niagara Falls, Canada, and Iguassu Falls of Brazil, but...More

We put up 2 nights in Guiyang and drove from here to Huangguoshu waterfall for about 2 hours drive. You cannot drive in to the scenic area but take the shuttle bus. Go early because you easily need about 4 - 5 hours minimum to...More

I admit I went there with abit of expectation hoping to see a big waterfall. Maybe it’s the off peak or Low season like what the locals says the waterfall seems to lack the “amazing” element. Since it’s off peak, there isn’t much water. Just...More

I was first there during National Week in 2009 and I thought it was crowded then. But you ain't seen nothing yet. In those days it was just a walk to the waterfall, go behind, and walk back. We headed there first and queued for...More

I'm a National Parks junkie at home, but this was a lot different from what I'm accustomed to. You can only take their buses and trams, so our tour bus dropped us off at a pickup station a few miles out of the park. The...More

Huangguoshu Waterfall (黄果树瀑布), is one of the largest waterfalls in Guizhou province, China. It took me less than two hours to go there from Guiyang City.

Waterfalls are plenty in the world but few allow you to walk through them unscathed. The Huangguoshu Falls allows you to just do that. You must not go during peak season otherwise the crowd will be impossible. There is also some risk as you could...More
