Introduction to Doupotang Waterfall

Located 1 km from the upper reaches of Huangguoshu Waterfall, Doupotang Waterfall is 105 meters wide in the top and 21 meters high. It is the widest in the top among all the waterfalls in the park. On the top of the waterfall is a large water-eroded pool covering an area of 15,000 square meters, and the waterfall is formed on the calcified bay that is over 100 meters long. There is another special phenomenon in the scenic spot, that is, the waterfall will produce a rumbling noise every year before the flood comes, hence the name “roaring waterfall”.

“Upon hearing the rumbling noise of the waterfall, I looked northward from between the mountains and saw suddenly a river dashing from the northeastern peaks along the cliff and pounding into the deep pond below. The upper part of the waterfall is dozens of meters wide misted with foams and sprays, while the lower one I could not see, for the cliffs on the opposite obstructed my view.” This is the description of Doupotang Waterfall in Xu Xiake’s Travelog by the famous traveler.

In 2005, Doupotang Waterfall was added with fishing and bird-viewing (of peacocks) facilities, etc, and the “Phoenix Garden” was built into the resort zone featuring numerous beautiful flowers and birds.
