The Largest Waterfall in Asia is the breathtaking Huanguoshu Waterfalls, located in Anshun city, Guizhou province, with the waterfall standing a remarkable77.8 m tall and 101m wide.

You can go inside the naturally formed cave behind the waterfall to see the biggest waterfall in Asia from a different angle and feel the power of nature.


Where is Guizhou? Not many people have heard of this place as it is unknown to travellers outside China. Guizhou is a mountainous province in the southwest of China between Yunnan and Sichuan, famous for its waterfall, natural caves, and indigenous culture.  This area has gained in popularity over recent years due to the rapid high-speed train development in China.

Anshun, where the glamorous Huangguoshu Waterfalls is located, is near the mid-western part of Guizhou and situated to the east of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau. The Huanguoshu Waterfall National Park has many more natural wonders, including a further 18 astonishingly beautiful waterfalls like the Luoshitan Waterfall, Silver-Chain Waterfall and the DiShuTian Waterfall.

The Dragon Palace Cave is another must-see attraction in Anshun city, as the area set in an amazing karst limestone region.
