Hukou Waterfall, Ji County

(4.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Feel the sheer force of nature at Hukou Waterfall, China's only waterfall with yellow water. Crushing through the Jinxia Grand Canyon, the powerful Yellow River drops from 20 m (66 ft), sweeping across 30 m (98 ft) of limestone sediments (or up to 50 m [164 ft] when floods hit the area), crashing into a large stone-strewn pool. Narrowing like the spout of a kettle, the mighty river breaks out with a thundering of muddy foam. Railed observation decks take you very close to the falls, so bring an umbrella if you don't feel like getting wet. You can also take a guided donkey ride on a fairly secure path. For Hukou Waterfall and beyond, use our Ji County itinerary planner to get the most from your Ji County vacation.

  • 第一次来壶口瀑布,感觉非常震撼,刚好去的那天在下雨,水量很大,那个要另外收钱的龙洞不建议去,没什么划算。那里的苹果好好吃。 
  • We didn't see this one coming! When a friend told us that we must see the Yellow River we gladly agreed but it was not what we've expected. The Yellow River you see on tv is this super wide slow movin...  more »
  • Went to attend trips from the West. Coach's Office went to the South Street station, and was also near the bus station, the drum tower. 19 was returned to Xi'an, morning 7 am departure from Xi'an and was guided by 550 km one way. Arrived at the jar mouth waterfall and walk. Free time is about an hour and a half is enough. Yellow River across the River (the water of Hwang Ho) look at flows left-to-right, the front is located in Shanxi province of Shaanxi Province, on the opposite bank. Very large scale but take on the Yellow River waterfall Cascades from both sides killed in the River Center in Shaanxi Province and Shanxi province side look at both, in water, is impressive enough to have. In heavily falling spray rain was flying to moisten the body so good after you have rain gear. I was visiting from Yichuan County, Shaanxi Province.

  • amazing masterpiece.
  • 因为元旦在家闲着没事,就跟团来壶口瀑布一日游。第一次来壶口瀑布,以前都是在视频中感受壶口瀑布的震撼场景,第一次亲临现场,却没有电视中的那一泻千里的壮观,只因为是冬天。 冬天的壶口瀑布有别样的风景,只是那么窄窄的一道,就可以带给你一种莫名的压迫感,河岸上有未融化的积雪和冰挂,也是一道靓丽的风景。从龙洞中近距离感受瀑布的独特,黄色巨流气势磅礴,冲击岸边激起无数白色飞浪...因为冬季黄河结冰,壶口瀑布像是一个深陷铁笼的猛兽,无法展现它原有壮观景色。有机会,一定要等到黄河水暴涨的时候再来一次,来感受一下万马奔腾的震撼场景。
  • Advertising went as tourists look high amid a landscape view of the advertising due to differences in power; the weaker.

  • 前几年去的时候正值丰水期,站在瀑布脚下,感觉瀑布十分的壮观,唯一遗憾的是交通相对还不是很便利哦,通往那边的路是二级公路。
  • 如果是丰水期去的话还不错,可以看到气势磅礴的水流,就是如果去那的话挺坑坑洼洼的,比较麻烦吧。
