We headed off from the hotel at 8am…our usual time with Vulcan in the lead. Morning tea stop was at the Xingyl gorge. We walked down into the gorge for some lovely photos and then continued onto the Huangguoshu waterfall for lunch.This is the largest waterfall in China and to equate it with Niagara Falls would be appropriate.
The waterfall was interesting. of course we attracted attention as we parked and then had to catch a bus to the smaller of the waterfalls. That was a walk down and stroll around the circuit. We boarded another bus and went to the main waterfall. Lots of people there and interestingly we were the only non chinese we saw. Some wonderful Bonsais were up the tip of the hill and the walk down was interesting. We caught the escalator up from the waterfall…well worth the ride!
Arrived at the hotel about 6 and Ian and I chose to have a quiet evening in the room instead of a chinese meal out.
A wonderful day!
Hi Ian and Lindy,
we are Enjoying your posts. We went to this waterfall when we were in Southern China. The scenery in that province is amazing. Like you we were the only non Chinese and this continued during the whole 2 weeks we were in three provinces in southern China .
Hope your leg is improving Ian. Great that you had a good experience accessing a doctor.
