Huangguoshu Waterfall

Updated: 2016-09-28

Huangguoshu Waterfall is Guizhou's most spectacular attraction. Located in Zhenning county, Anshun city, the scenic area can be found about 45 kilometers southwest of the city proper and 128 kilometers away from Guiyang, the provincial capital.

The waterfall, the largest waterfall in China and one of the most famous in the world, is the only waterfall on the planet that can be viewed from above, below, front, behind, left and right. It is 77.8 meters high and 101 meters wide. The main waterfall is 67 meters high and 83.3 meters wide. Water Curtain Cave, a 134-meter natural corridor behind the waterfall, allows visitors to watch, hear and touch the thundering water streaming down. A colorful rainbow arching across the waterfall from time to time turns the splendid waterscape into a real feast for the eyes.

The waterfall, along with 18 minor but equally beautiful waterfalls, such as Luositan Waterfall, Silver-Chain Waterfall and Dishuitan Waterfall, is also known as the Huangguoshu Waterfalls Cluster. It was included into the Guinness Book of World Records in 1999 as the world's largest waterfall cluster.
