Hua­gao Creek of Xuy­ong County

China Scenic - - GEOLOGY -

Hua­gao Creek runs through the na­ture re­serve named af­ter it. Its Chi­nese name means “sketch”or“draft,”re­veal­ing the fact that land­scapes along it form scenic views just like a tra­di­tional Chi­nese paint­ing. In south­ern Guizhou and south­ern Sichuan, peo­ple call a wa­ter­fall “cave”“(dong”in Chi­nese), be­cause usu­ally there is a cave hid­ing be­hind the wa­ter­fall. Hence, you may find many scenic points with a“dong”in the name, such as Si­dong Val­ley, Shizhang Dong, Pan­long Dong and many oth­ers.

The path con­structed on the ring-shaped cliff serves as a path for tourists and also as a play­ground for lo­cal kids.
