If you go in October, I would like to suggest that you visit Detian Falls in the morning as much as possible, because it is sunny in the morning, and the photos taken are much better, and it will be backlit in the afternoon. Along the way, we came to the waterfront. The first thing we saw was the Banyo Falls on the other side of Vietnam, where many Vietnamese bamboo rafts would secretly cross the border to our shore to peddle things. We suggested not to buy them. There was no guarantee. Second, there was a large Vietnamese commodity market on the upper border of the back waterfall. There were more choices and more lively ones. The closer we get to Detian Falls, the louder the sound of the waterfall will be. There are many trees blocking your sight on the deviated road, which adds to its mystery. Finally, the protagonist comes out. Detian Transnational Falls have a larger amount of water than imagined. The bamboo raft you can see on the water surface can cross the other bank by taking a bamboo raft. Then you can go through the bottom of the waterfall and circle back, not only get close contact with the waterfall, but also get close contact with it. To cross into Vietnam, just like this bamboo raft propaganda slogan - "20 yuan for a dream of going abroad", haha. Of course, the bamboo raft is usually 20 yuan/person, the National Day rose decisively to 30 yuan/person, there is no way, in order to contact the waterfall, decided to volunteer to do a big water fish. Later friends in Detian, ah, strongly suggest that you do not save the money on the bamboo raft, the experience from the waterfall is absolutely very exciting. Haha, a word, cool. Continue up to the waterfall. Above, as mentioned above, is a flea market in Vietnam. It belongs to a friendly area along the Sino-Vietnamese border, with a wide range of East and West. There are many Vietnamese specialties in the Vietnamese market on the Sino-Vietnamese border. I recommend Baihu ointment for 10 yuan and 3 bottles. It is said that it can be cheaper and more convenient to send people back carefully.
Detian Falls is located on the Sino-Vietnamese border. There are two waterfalls here. The magnificent one is the Detian Falls in China, and the smaller one is the Vietnamese Falls. Walking along the mountain road, you can sit on a bamboo raft under the waterfall and enjoy the momentum of the waterfall at a close distance. It feels very shocking. Then climbing to the top of the mountain, you will see the boundary tablets on the Sino-Vietnamese border. Vietnam is full of shops. You can buy some favorite things here, such as cigarettes, slippers, handicraft, etc. And as long as you cross the boundary tablets, you will receive mobile outbound text messages. There are indeed outbound texts, but there will be many people who speak Mandarin more standard than the mainland people who are armed with live ammunition to drive you out. Vietnamese face to face, very interesting scene.
The scenery is awesome and magnificent. Totally worth the 4 hours one-way ride from the city.
On the one hand is China, on the other is Vietnam, the famous transnational waterfall, with its broad and magnificent, green and beautiful, white, smooth and silky overlook, the sound of waterfalls roaring near by bamboo raft, water vapor transpiration, can cross the sea to see the ancient boundary markers, can cross the coast to see Vietnam's pastoral scenery, can also go to the border line and purchase Vietnamese characteristic goods, it is really a good trip.
On November 11, 2016, get up early and go to Detian Falls. From Nanning to G7211 Nan (Ning) Youyou (Yiguan) Expressway, turn left through Chong to S60 He (Pu) Na (Slope) Expressway. Along the way, the illusion of endless karst landforms makes people unable to see, feeling - "cars traveling in the painting, people flying with fairyland. It deserves to call itself "China Highway Wonderland Road No. 1". Crossing the Zuojiang River, I gazed intently at the cliffs on the shore, but could not see the fantastic elves'Huashan rock paintings. The economic plants on both sides of the road are mainly eucalyptus and sugarcane. Triangle plum is blooming everywhere. There are some unknown yellow flowers and safflower, which make up the land of Bagui without cold. After the Bumeng 3 Tunnel, 380 kilometers down the S60 Highway, about 15 kilometers to the Daxin Shuolong Town Scenic Area Service Area. Purchase tickets and scenic bus tickets, and drive along the border highway for about 10 kilometers to the Detian Falls scenic spot. On the left side of the road is the Guichun River, which is not wide but steep on both sides. This is the border with Vietnam. Get off the bus, walk three or five hundred meters, pass a small market and then enter the scenic area, and immediately see the waterfalls. It's a dry season, with only a few small streams. It's my first suggestion to come to Germany. Naturally, I can't write my disappointment on my face. I'm still in high spirits. Under the waterfall, the custom is a pool, flowing continuously into the Guichun River. Because it is a transnational waterfall, both sides of the Strait have their own scenic spots, there are bamboo raft tourists to feel under the waterfall. However, there are many Vietnamese girls and young women who speak Chinese here selling Vietnamese cigarettes, Cat Shit coffee and other goods to the Chinese people. Ha ha, be careful to be slaughtered. From the top to the third level waterfalls, small water also has the advantage of small water, which can be examined at close range and can touch the rock behind the waterfall with one's own hands. It is also a different feeling. Another one or two hundred meters, to reach the No. 53 boundary marker, for the Qing Dynasty established, has a history of more than 300 years. The vicissitudes can also be seen from the traces on the stone tablets. Less than 10 meters from the No. 53 boundary marker is a new boundary marker reconstructed by the People's Republic of China in the late 1990s, which also pours out the hard sweat of our surveyors and mapping people. Beside the boundary marker, there should be an open-air market about five acres in Vietnam for Vietnamese goods, which seems to be more formal and non-bargaining. It is said that slippers here are better, made of rubber, soft and durable. Walking around the bazaar and walking back along the sightseeing road, I always feel something wrong. It seems that I heard a buzzing sound. Suddenly wake up, look right, haha, I don't know when the flow of water increases sharply, flying straight down, like a curtain hanging directly in front of me. This is the real Detian transnational waterfall. Within two hours, seeing two different waterfalls, going once equals going twice, which is beyond the value. To sum up, we must also thank the Vietnamese people for their friendship, which must be the reason why the upstream sluices are opened and the water is released.
Detian Waterfall is the first large-span waterfall in Asia and the fourth largest in the world. Its annual average water flow is about three times that of Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou Province. It is 120 meters wide and divided into three cascades with a vertical height of more than 60 meters and a full width of 208 meters. It is the largest natural waterfall in Southeast Asia. Ten o'clock in the morning, the water flow of the waterfall is not too big... After a few hours, Detian Falls magically restored its original momentum, but saw the mighty Guichun River, pouring down from a cliff more than 50 meters high, the roaring sound of water hit the eardrum, shocking!
It's not too bad to give Detian Falls a big compliment of 5A. We just went to Hukou Falls in August this year. Let's compare the two scenic spots: Hukou Falls is a cross-province waterfall, which separates Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces. The shape of the non-waterfall is single-stage and falls directly from a pot mouth. Because it is the water of the Yellow River, with high sediment content, there are many mud spots on the body in close view. Detian Waterfall is a transnational waterfall, which separates China and Vietnam. Waterfalls are actually composed of more than 20 waterfalls. Photographs can be taken from multiple angles. Waterfall water is clear, close-up not only will not be dirty clothes by water mist, but also high negative oxygen ions absolutely make people relaxed and happy. Both scenic spots are 4A, but the level of infrastructure construction and management is far from the same: Hukou management is extensive, because there is no vegetation on the Loess Plateau, parking lot and waterfall road have to endure the sun exposure, and there is a lot of garbage around the waterfall. Detian management is very delicate, parking lot visitors are very good trails, shady trees, the ground is spotless, and even the toilet repair is like a scenic spot. In a word, Hukou Waterfall is a national symbol and a face to look at. Detian Falls is a pure natural beauty, looking inside.
The water is not too big. There is a lot of water at noon. It's very beautiful. Many people are drunk when they buy Vietnamese slippers. The things at the boundary markers are more expensive and the boating is cheaper. Vietnam is really dirty and messy. China has a very good governance on this side. It's very different.
On the fifth day of the first year, the second stop of self-driving tour is Detian Transnational Falls. The largest waterfall in Asia and the fourth in the world. It is like landscape painting, riding on a bamboo raft, standing in the painting, close to the waterfall zero distance, feeling her momentum, although the water volume is not the largest, but can be closer. Here, China and Vietnam are separated by the Guichun River. The Banyue Waterfall in Vietnam has only three water pillars, which is less magnificent than the Detian Waterfall in China. Vietnamese tourists paddling bamboo rafts on rivers near Chinese bamboo rafts sell Vietnamese specialties. It can even dock on the coast of China. The 835 boundary marker was erected in 2001, redefining the Sino-Vietnamese border. Nearby, there is the national cultural relic No. 53 boundary marker. It was erected in the 14th year of Guangxu in the Great Qing Dynasty, but it has lost its defining significance. In Detian Transnational Falls scenic spot, besides the first waterfall in Asia and the fourth waterfall in the world, there is also an interesting feature of transnational markets. At the peak of Detian Waterfall, the border trade fairs on the 835 sides of the Sino Vietnamese border, which are formed spontaneously by the Sino Vietnamese border residents, sell Vietnamese snacks, cigarettes, perfume, red bull, and famous Vietnamese rubber slippers.
There are more than one hundred tickets, and 45 people have to take their ferry to get to the scenic spot. Along the way, the scenery is good, the waterfall is not big, the main feature is "transnational". You can see the Vietnamese people on the other side, as well as many Vietnamese swimming in bamboo rafts to sell goods under the roadside guardrail. Walking up the hill, you can see the Vietnamese market. It's very busy and has a lot of things. I recommend plastic slippers and Vietnamese yogurt. It's very good. I bought a lot of them and took them away.
