Huangguoshu (Biggest Waterfall in Asia)

If you are on backpacking trip in China and didn´t have a shower in a while, or your clothes ought to be washed rather soon, you should go to Huangshou. This is for the one reason, that there is no chance that you will get out this place dry. The largest waterfall in China will show you what kind of force large amount of water can develop. It will rain from aside and from the top. From below and from within. This nature spectacle is eighty meters wide and an impressive site to watch. Also interesting is the way the Chinese make business at tourist-site, a very special kind of capitalism under the red flag. Ok, first you have to spend some yuan for the entrance ticket. You walk in and you see a sort of open-air-lift. Sure you have to take it and there is no other way to the water. And surely this is to be paid. Once you do your walks at the waterside you will have to walk through the caves.

Once you do your walks at the waterside you will have to walk through the caves.

Most certainly you have to pay once again to pass the cave. Like the congestion charge you have to pay in London downtown. The one difference is, there is no pollution coming out of your rear end. But what the heck, if you don’t take the passage through the water you will not come to the end and will not leave the place and will not have the opportunity to pay once more for your lift up the hill with the elevator. Well, yeah, it is expensive but you will have to suck the pill and bite your tongue!
