Huangguoshu Waterfall the largest waterfall in Asia

Huangguoshu Waterfall Anshun Guizhou
The one of the must see attractions in Guizhou is undoubtedly the Huangguoshu Waterfall. Lost amidst a beautiful natural park, we hear the rumble of distant waterfall. The deafening noise is a more extraordinary backdrop formed by water flowing at full speed in the pond. The cave of the water curtain is a unique way to approach the fall and go to the other side.

The Largest Waterfall Asian

It is fifty kilometers away from Anshun that is the main attraction of Guizhou, Huangguoshu Waterfall. Huangguoshu Waterfall is so powerful that its roar is heard well before arriving at the fall. In a natural park of 450km², this cascade beats all its neighbors by its height and beauty. At the height of the rainy season, the waterfall is over 70 meters high and 100 meters wide! Mist created by this tumult will even form rainbows in the sky.

Different Landscape, Different Season

Huangguoshu waterfall can have two different faces. From November to April, the dry season enters and the stream decreases gradually. In March and April, they are not as small streams flowing peacefully in the Rhinoceros pond, below the waterfall. Instead, from May to October, there are just four days of rain in a row, which easily get a raging torrent going. The rushing water flows at full speed from the top of the cliff in an incredible din. Cascade extends in width from 80 meters to 100 meters!

An Impressive Ride

To appreciate the best view of waterfall, a cable car will lead you to a nice place. Otherwise, the park offers a 6 kilometer-long trails for a pleasant hike. One of them leads to the cave of the water curtain, also accessible by escalator. 134 meters long, this cave can get to the other side of the waterfall and then be closer to the waterfall. The cave consists of natural windows that allow admiring the waterfall from the inside. Be careful though, it also means that one hardened spring cave.

TianXing Bridge

A few kilometers downstream Huangguoshu Waterfall is a green park with an area of 3 km². For a few hours, it is possible to walk in the middle of karst peaks of up to 20 meters high. Riding on the Tianxing Bridge and enjoy a magnificent panorama of a unique countryside.

Doupotang Waterfall

Further upstream is a smaller but equally beautiful waterfall. Doupotang indeed rises only about twenty meters high but extends over 100 meters wide. The waterfall of the steep slope, translated from the Chinese name on which they are located. The water flows into it from a huge pond of 15,000 m², which is just above it.

Note: Bring good walking shoes, mist settling on the stone paths and caves may cause slippery walking and sometimes even a little bit dangerous.
