Pearl Shoal Waterfalls is located within Jiuzhaigou National Reserve. It's breathtaking! Just be mindful of selfie-loving local tourists, they really want to get that perfect shot. Don't jostle for pictures, just let them take theirs first :)

Itwas very nice and peaceful place, ensure to walk the top part, it is lovely! Then you can continue and take the next bus stop. On your way down you can get the pics fro the waterfall, is a small one but cute

Definitely make time for this one. These were my favorite waterfalls in the park. They seemed to go on forever and were simply gorgeous.

Pearl Shoal Waterfall, as well as this entire park is spectacular. It can be very crowded (there were 30,000 tourists the day we were there). Watch out for selfie sticks - they are everywhere. But still, one of the most beautiful places I have been.

Excellent and worthy oneday trip inside the Nature Reserve. Convenient bus routes connects to all the beautiful and exhilirating spots. Your day ticket includes all the scenery points. Excellent bus routes connects to each of the point of interest and you can drop-off and get on the bus in your own schedule.

From the pearl shoal bus-stop, we walked on a wooden board path along a wide beautiful stream with magnificent view of snow capped mountains and changing-color leaves.

Fantastic view of the waterfall. very crowded. Gushing waterfall and the sound was amazing. Be prepared to cover your expensive cameras as there's lots of moisture around.

We started at the top where a beautiful stream with vegetation is flowing towards the cliffs. The view changes as you descend down the stairs and the amazing waterfalls come into view. The waterfalls are pretty wide and we could get pretty close to them. It's a popular attraction, so expect lots of local crowd but you'll get your turn... More
