The Huangguoshu Waterfall is the center of the scenic spot. It is the biggest waterfall in Asia, spanning 68 meters high and 84 meters wide. In flood season, it looks just like the Milky Way pouring down, making the precipitous cliffs tremble while fine mists of water droplets rise from the plunge pool. It is particularly superb when a rainbow arch appears from the plunge pool of the waterfall under the shining sun. In dry season, the water separates into several streams falling down from the cliffs like a fairy maiden’s elegant hair, charming and graceful. On the top of the precipice opposite the waterfall stands a pavilion, from which visitors can enjoying the waterfall. There is a 134 meter long water-curtain cave behind the waterfall. Inside it, you can see the plunging water like numberless strings of pearls flying down over your head and reflecting rainbows in the drizzle. It is really an amazing view.
