Dadieshui Waterfall

Last updated by david at 2015/11/7

Dadieshui Waterfall is also called "Flying Dragon Waterfall" which is the tributary of Nanpan River. It is one of the most biggest and famous waterfall in China. Dadieshui Waterfall is about 90 meters high and 30 meters wide. And when it stands its full water capacity, it could reach the width of 60 meters at least.

 During the dry season, the waterfall seems to be covered by a piece of misty gauze, full of mystery.While during the rainy season, the water pours down with great velocity, sending out a thunderous noise audible for several kilometers like a howling dragon, whose sound shocks the whole valley. In the sunshine, colorful rainbows often appear. These colorful rainbows, jagged rocks, the sparkled water, and the mountains associate a picture which is so beautiful and spectacular.

 The pool under the waterfall is clear and shining that many people like disporting here very much. All in all, Dadieshui Waterfall is a ideal place for people to relax.
