Few in The World have Seen The Golden Waterfall

Hukou Waterfall, located in Yan'an City, Shaanxi Province. It is a national scenic spot with 4A rating. The upstream width area of the Yellow River is 300 meters, but within a distance of less than 500 meters of the waterfall, it is compressed to a width of 20-30 meters. The river pours 1000 cubic meters per second from a steep cliff that is more than 20 meters high, hence forming "a thousand miles of Yellow River poured from a teapot." Every summer, owing to changes in the flow of water above the mouth of the teapot, everyone can see the wonderful sight of multiple waterfalls.
