Hukou Waterfall

Hukou River, the largest yellow waterfall in the world

Largest waterfall on Yellow River, 2nd largest in China. When the Yellow River surges towards the Hukou Mountain, blocked by mountains on both sides, its width is abruptly narrowed down to 20-30 meters. The water speeds up with increasing water power. Then it rushes down from the narrow mouth, forming a grand waterfall of 50 meters high and 30 meters wide, as if water is pouring down from a huge teapot. Hence it gets the name Hukou (Flask Mouth) Waterfall.As the color of the waterfall is yellow, Hukou Waterfall has also been named "The largest yellow waterfall in the world."the first for the Yellow River Falls, is second only to China Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou"s second largest waterfall.
