璧ゆ按鍗佷笀澶х戝竷
By Nikita Jaeger

TP 202007 CHINA 01Chishui Falls is a picturesque location in the Chishui scenic area, in the northwestern part of Guizhou province, China, and is the top attraction in Zunyi city. It is a subtropical zone blessed with several scenic spots, including more than 4,000 waterfalls, bamboo forests, creeks, ancient towns, tree ferns, rare animals, etc. The Chishui Falls is the second-largest waterfall in China after the Huangguoshu Waterfall.

 

The scenic spots in Chishui are exceptionally enthralling for the presence of Alsophila Spinulosa, a species in the Cyatheaceae family that grows up to 4.5鈥5 m, and dates back to the Jurassic period. Most of the scenic spots in Chishui are Danxia landforms and are included on the UNESCO natural heritage sites list, and the area is well-preserved because of its endangered flora and fauna.

 

The Danxia landform comprises red cliffs, and red beds of land spread over more than 1,000 kilometres. Chishui Danxia has two sectors; western and eastern. The western sector is large and has scenic spots, a national park, etc., while the eastern sector is famous for Buddha rock, scenic areas, bamboo forests, etc..

 

During the summer, the relatively cooler climate of the area attracts people from nearby towns to buy or rent vacation homes in Chishui. The best seasons to visit Chishui are autumn, spring, and summer. The scenic spots in Chishui charge visitors less than CNY100.
