The Baishui River tumbles over nine sets of rocks, creating nine waterfalls over a course of 2 km (1 mile). At the highest point, Huangguoshu Falls drops an eye-popping 230 feet. The largest in China, these falls are set in lush countryside where you'll find numerous villages. You can enjoy them from afar or by wading across the Rhinoceros Pool (Xiniu Jian) to the Water Curtain Cave (Shuilian Dong) hidden behind the main falls. Seven km (4½ miles) downstream
is the Star Bridge Falls (Xingqiao Pu). The falls are at their best from May through October. To avoid switching buses en route at the city of Anshu, book a tour with a local agency or at your hotel.
