This place has definitely had some help with its 'natural' appearance. Yes, the waterfalls are picturesque and obviously popular with local couples getting married. It is easily accessible on your way down from Jade Dragon mountain. I'm not sure it compares with Pammukale in Turkey...More

We were brought here by our guide after going up the Jade Dragon Mountain, and the peaceful river provided a contrast to the high mountains. The water flows down man-made crescent shaped terraces, reminiscent of scenes from Yellowstone Park in USA. There were prayer flags...More

Agreed with the previous reviewers its just mainly for a nice photoshoot with the terraced water fall backdrop. Other than that not much to do. It's also part of a tour after a visit to the Jade Tiger Snow mountain into the leapoing tiger gorge.

Crowded with tourists, but a scenic place. Good for photo fanatics, nothing to buy there but good for nature lovers. Need to take a bus to get there.

Marvelous waterfalls that are part of the Blue moon Valley. There are quite a few waterfalls on your stroll, so don't worry that you'll miss that perfect shot. By the end of your walk, you'll have plenty. Touch the water, since the Chinese say it...More
