Went here in peak season. It was jammed packed but climbing the waterfalls was worth it.. Very clean water. 6/10 ability needed to climb the falls. You will get wet on the first climb (which is the hardest) but on a hot humid day was a nice relief from the weather.. Getting there can be tricky.. You can take a... More

Located about 40min-drive away from Guilin downtown,Godong Waterfall is a main scenic spot there.Not only famouse for its multiple waterfalls coming out from underground spring,but also its environment-friendly oriented culture. Also,there're much local culture,like Guilin dialect translated into mandarin carved in every downhill stonestair.Every visitor will imitate the pronunciation and laugh because they quickly speak another interesting language. What's more,this... More

It was really exciting to climb up the waterfall, and it's not just one waterfall. It's a whole series of waterfalls. Also, even though it's exciting, it's very safe. They have special grass shoes and safety helmets as well as a chain to hold on to. I highly recommend it especially in the hot summer months.

good for families, company/school outing, Gudong offers different activities. But the walk is definitely worth it.

We were in Guilin and weather was cloudy. This place was on in our itinerary but somehow we were not too far from it and decided to visit. After all, there was no sunlight to enable us to take good photos of the karst hills. Li River Gudong Scenic Area was a failure in my opinion. It was a complete... More
