Booming water can be heard and the road seems to tremble slightly about 1.5 kilometers west from Xiaodieshui Waterfall. Bajiang River jumps from a sheer cliff. And the watercourse breaks and forms a waterfall. This waterfall falls over 90 meters, which is 18 meters higher than Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou; and its width in rainy season can exceed 60 meters. It is the largest waterfall in Yunnan Province and the first waterfall in the Pearl River. Grand and magnificent, the waterfall looks like falling clouds with mist reflecting a rainbow under sunlight.
To enjoy the full view of Dadieshui, round-trip cable car is recommended for comfort, safety and convenience. Cable car fee is 10 RMB for one way and 20 RMB for round trip. Visitors can also go up and down along with the stone steps along the mountain. Hundreds of steps winding between cliffs present different fun.
