This is supposedly the second tallest waterfall in China and it attracts a lot of Chinese visitors. Seeing the site as well as the many people from different parts of the country was very enjoyable. The stairs down are many, but there is an escalator to climb back up.

Biggest waterfall in Asia. Impressive breathtaking views if you managed to do the circle hiking to and from the waterfall. Too much local folklore at some of the photo points, better to look for alternative location to have some decent pictures. Do not forget to take rain protection for you and camera. The trail takes you under the fall and... More

I fully enjoyed my visit of the waterfall. It has been a memorable experience indeed. As soon as you enter the place from the main gate there is a path to follow. You will firstly visit some small waterfalls which look nice. After that you will keep walking for a good half an hour before arriving to the real waterfall... More

My name is tony. I lead a family group from Canada in the summer in 2012 when Tibet was closed and I still remembered every moments we went there. It was too crowded and touristy, entrance tickets are not cheap, the waterfall itself is good to see, please prepare rain coat and or umbrella, and packed food/fruits.

Huangguoshu falls are a most sight in Guizhou! You can go there by bus from Anshun or Guiyang or like we did by car. The ticket is 180 rmb and includes all the entrance to the different spots! If you go by bus you will need to pay 50 rmb more for the transport inside the park or around 10-20... More

The park to go to the waterfall is well organized. The waterfall is big and amazing and there are plenty of spots to see the waterfall. You can also go behind the waterfall through a cave tunnel and that is amazing. The ticket for the entrance allows you access to other places which are nice too.

Huang Guo Shu Waterfall is the biggest waterfall in China and the third biggest waterfall in the world, it is amazing. The ticket is at CNY180 plus the shuttle bus ticket at the price CNY50. The area is wonderful and natural, the only thing which not perfect was there were too many people, probably because August is the high season... More

There are many beautiful waterfalls in the area, you can enjoy them all via relatively easy trail hiking. The main fall is spectacular and it is interesting to look at it from under/behind it. Since this is one of the main tourist attractions, it can get real crowed if you go in the summer.
