Day 1 Linfen - Hukou Waterfall

Today, you will be met by your local tour guide at Linfen West Railway Station, and then be escorted for about 2 hours to Hukou Waterfall by a private and comfortable vehicle.

Hukou Waterfall is the largest yellowish waterfall in the world and the second largest waterfall in China. When Yellow River cleaves Shanxi province and Shaanxi province at the point where riverbed abruptly narrows down, the thunderous water splashes on the rock form spectacular Hukou Waterfall naturally. Hukou Waterfall gets its name of Hukou (meaning kettle spout literally) because the it seems pouring down from a huge kettle. As the water stirs up a mass of smoke and clouds, the scene of Hukou Waterfall is extremely overwhelming. In the sunny days, the mist is refracted by sunlight to create a rainbow like a beautiful bridge spanning river. You will have enough time enjoy the magnificent waterfall and take nice photos.

After the sightseeing, transfer back to Linfen West Railway Station to catch your train to Pingyao or other destinations. (Currently you can take high speed train to Beijing(6hrs), Xian(3.5hrs), Taiyuan(2.5hrs), etc.)

Notes: 1) May to October is the best time to see the powerful waterfall but you can see calm glacier fall in cold winter; 2) you can pay an optional visit to the Dragon Cave (CNY 20) beneath Hukou Waterfall to get a different view.
