  The charm of Guizhou lies mainly in the province's southeast and southwest and is highlighted by the Huang Guoshu Waterfalls and "red" revolution-themed tours.

  But not many people know that northern Guizhou contains a mysterious place like a natural emerald studded in southwest China. It is called Chishui.

The Kingdom of Waterfalls

  There are hundreds of various sized and shaped waterfalls in Chishui. The waterfalls are called "dong" by the locals, literally meaning "opening," to describe how they hang on the cliffs in the valley.

  The famous Sidonggou Valley means "a valley with four openings" and is 17 km from Chishui. It features four exceptionally beautiful waterfalls of varying heights.

  About 37 kilometers from Chishui, the Shizhangdong scenic spot is a beautiful valley where visitors can enjoy a multi-stepped waterfall and a wide variety of ferns and some exotic plants unknown to most people. Because it is well-covered in thick virgin ferns, Chishui's magic had not been unveiled to the world until it was discovered in 1986. Be prepared for the thundering roar of the waterfalls as you approach Shizhangdong. You will find its magnificent rip currents pouring down like writhing dragons or galloping horses.
