You should visit this waterfall before the Huangguoshu Waterfall and this is the appetizer. Otherwise this may not be too exciting. It is a beautiful fall and the walks are nice and less crowded. Enjoy the birds in the area too.

The Doupotang (Steep Slope Pond) scenic area has a waterfall smaller than that of Huangguoshu Falls but it is equally beautiful. It is located close to the Huangguoshu Falls hence most people will visit both. I went there almost at closing time (gate closed at...More

We went in late October and the water wasnt strong. Its wide and nice to look at but you cant feel the power in contrast to Huangguoshu. Average Falls.

We bought a ticket that allowed us to take a shuttle bus to three waterfalls in the area. This one is the widest one. Very spectacular although it was crowded due to the mid-autumn holiday.

Wide waterfall made famous by the end credits of the show "Journey to the West". The small park itself is a wonderful stroll.

Easy to reach once in the Huangguoshu park. Best to go in Jun to Aug as water level highest. better to take all your pictures before crossing the bridge as full view of the falls disappears at the middle of the bridge.

It's a quite small park with waterfalls and statues from the tale 'Journey to the West'. The waterfall is the main attraction, and while it is quite impressive, the viewing spot i far away from the waterfall. Since you're looking at it from a distance,...More

We came here as part of the three sights of Huangguoshu Fall. Nice view but not spectacular. The whole sight took us an hour. It was a nice walk to the fall in the morning as its spring.
