Huangguoshu Waterall is located in Guizhou province Anshun city Zhenning Buyi and Miao Autonomous County Shuihe on white.Atlas. Local legend says that in ancient times the sky suddenly cracked open, causing part of the Milky Way to smash to pieces on the ground. The largest piece hung on the verge of a cliff and became the Huangguoshu Waterfalls, which, in the process of crashing down the cliff, broke into several dozen cascades. 


The best time to visit the falls is June to early October after the rains. Huangguoshu Waterfalls are ideal spots to appreciate the beauty of nature The scene of Huangguoshu Waterfall changes while you are standing in different places. One place is Waterfall-Viewing Pavilion (Guan Bao Ting), from which you can see the whole fall in distance. Next is Water-Viewing Pavilion (Guan Shui Ting), where you take a bird's-eye view of it. The third one is Waterfall-Viewing Stage (GuanBao Tai) beside Xiniu Tan, in which you raise your head to see the splendid scene. The best place is Little Moon Stage (Xiao Yue Tai) behind Water-Curtain Cave (Shui Lian Dong) where you could see it, touch it and enjoy it. Between nine o'clock to eleven o'clock every morning in clear days, you may see a rainbow sometimes you may see two.

There are mainly three National Parks in this waterfall national park: Waterfalls Cluster, Water-Curtain Cave and Rhinoceros Pool (Xi Niu Tan).
 

Waterfalls Cluster: Huangguoshu is the best known of some 18 in a cluster of waterfalls. Its flow is seasonally adjusted. A reservoir behind the waterfall holds back some of the water. Doupotang Waterfall, one kilometer (less than one mile) up the river to Huangguoshu Waterfall, at 105 meters (344 feet) across is the widest. It is 21 meters (69 feet) high. Other waterfalls like LuosiTan Waterfall, Silver-Chain Waterfall and Dishuitan Waterfall all have their distinct features.

 

Water-Curtain Cave: The Water-Curtain Cave dissects Huangguoshu and provides visitors view ports on the waterfall. The total length of the cave is 134 meters (440 feet), including windows and halls. A road on the mountainside leads into the Water-Curtain Cave, where the fall can be heard, watched and touched. On a sunny day, a rainbow arches over the falls.

 

Rhinoceros Pool (Xi Niu Tan): Eleven meters (36 feet) deep, the pool is Rhinoceros shaped and stays submerged year round. Standing inside Water-Viewing Pavilion (Wang shui Ting) beside the Rhinoceros Pool to enjoy the flowing-down of the Huangguoshu Waterfall, you may feel bunches of pearls and silver chains are falling upon you. What a grand and peculiarly attractive scene!


Due to its charm and unique style, Huangguoshu Waterfall group can be called the world's most typical and spectacular waterfalls in Karst, and its surrounding has developed a lot of Karst cave, forming the famous Guizhou underground world, which possess a great tourism value.
