China Part 10 - Guang Xi Region : The Border within China and Vietnam
中国篇 10 - 广西 ： 中国 越南边界
Arrived at Nanning at night and we proceed for another 3 hours drive to another attraction on the second day.
Detian Waterfall is a transnational waterfall in the Sino-Vietnamese border, ranking the largest transnational waterfall in Asia and the fourth largest transnational waterfall in the world.
From China, it was called De Tian Waterfall. From Vietnam, it was named Ban Gioc Waterfall. In China, De Tian Waterfall is known as one of the most beautiful waterfall. Well, the beautiful of it cannot be compared with Canada's Niagara Falls.
Located in Shuolong Town，Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the Detian Waterfall originates from the Guichun River which passes Vietnam and winds back Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. When the Guichun River arriving at the bluff in Detian Village, Daxin County, then the Detian Waterfall formed. Up on the about 200-meter wide bluff, the waterfall pours down with the drop of 70 meters. Visitors can the resonant roars kilometers away. If who visit the waterfall early in the morning, he would enjoy the rainbow when the rising sun shining on the mist upon the waterfall.
The Detian Waterfall is divided into three layers: the upper layer, the gradual slope, and the lower layer. In the upper layer, the water rushes along the almost vertical bluff, and pours down into the deep pool with silvery spray splashing upon the pool. Then the waterfall comes to the gradual slop, in which the waterfall has an opportunity to relax after the onrush before and gather momentum for the grandest lower layer. In the lower layer, the water rushes down and open a marvelous natural picture with wide water screen and surrounding green trees. In summer, the Detian waterfall has the largest water flow.
That's all for the introduction, the following are the photos taken during that visit. Great experience to feel the breezy air when we walk up to the hills, drizzling waterfall splash along the way.
