It is 81 metres wide, with a drop of 74 metres. Like the Milky Way descending from heaven, the Huangguoshu Waterfall rushes into the Xiniu pond. Its roaring sound can be heard several kilometres away. The cave behind the Waterfall is 134 metres long. Still intact inside the cave is an age-old carving of four Chinese characters, meaning “snow reflecting cloud”. Watching sunset from inside the cave offers a mirage-like view.
