Last updated by chinatravel at 2015/5/3

 1 km away from the county, Waterfalls of Dieshuihe is a part Tengyue tourism culture garden and is one of the twelve scenic spots of Tengchong— "Screen of Dragon Cave". The waterfalls are 46m high which is the only volcano barrier waterfalls in the city of China. Along the walls of the cliff arranges strange column-shaped joints clusters.

 Water of Dayingjiang river flows across Tengchong Bazi from north to south and suddenly falls down from the huge fault cliff and forms the grand waterfalls. Above the momentous waterfalls there's a Taiji stone bridge built by governor of west Yunnan ZhangWenguang in September of the second year of Republic of China.

Standing on the bridge, appreciating the waterfalls, they look like the milky way flows down the sky or like thousands of horses gallop, sounding like great thunders, which make tourists feel soul-stirring. Opposite the waterfalls, on the only peak is the waterfall-viewing balcony built by Yongchang prefect YanShitai in Jianjing year of the Ming dynasty and it had been expanded once by famous general Zilong in Wanling year of the Ming dynasty.

Li Yuanhong, President of Northern Warlords government wrote three Chinese characters—Longguangtai. There are many caved stones in the yard, most of which are excellent works of celebrities and scholars. The famous ones include a 206-character couplet written by Jinshi (successful candidate in the highest imperial examination held in the palace under the emperor's supervision) of the Qing dynasty, Jun people—Cunkaitai.

Standing in the water-viewing balcony, enjoying the landscape, reading the long couplet and reviewing the history of important town—Tengchong, it may arouse your poetic mood and exuberant spirit.
