The Huangguoshu Waterfall was a filming location for the 1986 television production Journey to the West. It gets its name from the “huangguo trees” that grow along the riverbanks. The waterfall is surrounded by lush vegetation, gorges, limestone caves, stone outcroppings, and rock pillars in a classic karst landscape. Centered around Huangguoshu Waterfall, 18 unique waterfalls line this stretch of river. Known for their power, strength, treacherousness, and beauty, they comprise one of the world’s great groups of waterfalls.
Dragon Palace Cave (Long Gong)
4.4/5
2,645 Reviews
Cave
Dragon Palace Cave is located on the southern outskirts of Anshun City, adjacent to Huangguoshu Waterfall. While the scenery is mainly famous for subterranean streams and karst caverns, it also has peaks and valleys, waterfalls, clusters of karst peaks, and other scenic features unique to the karst topography. Stalactites of every form and shape in the caverns will amaze you, and the multicolored lighting will heighten the effect. Dragon Palace Cave is divided into three sections: the central Dragon Palace Cave Scenic Area, Xuantang (“Whirlpool Pool”), and Qunfang Valley (“Valley of Many Fragrances”). The Dragon Palace Cave Scenic Area is the essential portion, while Xuantang primarily offers agricultural scenery. The Qunfang Valley between them offers a stretch of rolling hills and mountain valley.

4.5/5
672 Reviews
Geological Sites
Tianxingqiao Scenic Area is located in the lower reaches of Huangguoshu Waterfall. It is divided into three major areas: Tianxing Bonsai Area, Tianxing Cave and Water Stone Forest. It is a wonderful place to appreciate the stunning union of the water stone forest, surrounded by natural stones, trees and waterfalls. If the Huangguoshu Waterfall is characterized by its majestic grandeur, the Tianxingqiao Scenic Area is absolutely exquisite and beautiful.
Doupotang Waterfall
4.5/5
813 Reviews
Waterfall
Doupotang Waterfall shows two different sides. When White Water River is at its normal level, the water is clear. Doupotang Waterfall flows down slowly, looking like a veil — it was therefore dubbed as a bride's veil. When a rainy season comes, White Water River pours down, carrying sand and soil. It no longer gentle and becomes a strong and forceful wild horse.

Hukou Waterfall: a thousand miles of Yellow River poured from a teapot # 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.
