Huangguoshu Waterfall is 77.8 meters high and 101.0 meters wide. It is the largest waterfall in China and one of the world famous waterfalls. More than 300 years ago, Xu Xiake, a famous Chinese geographer and traveler, described his water as "flowing from a stream to a stone, such as smoke, is powerful. The so-called bead curtain hook is not rolled up, and the practice of hanging a distant peak is not enough to imitate its shape". The galloping river flows down the Rhinoceros Pool from the cliff cliff over 70 meters high, making a tremendous noise. Huangguoshu Waterfall is divided into big water, medium water and small water. The annual flow of medium water is 20 cubic meters per second, which lasts for nine to ten months. Flow is different, landscape is also different. In heavy water, the flow rate is 1500 cubic meters per second. Waterfalls trigger droplets that fall on Huangguoshu Street Market, even in sunny days, but also to carry an umbrella, so it has the reputation of "Silver Rain Sprinkles on Gold Street". The waterfall falls are divided into four branches, each with its own shape and characteristics, from left to right, the first branch has the smallest water potential and spreads freely; the second branch has the largest water potential and the upper and lower branches are generally thick; the third branch has the second water potential and the upper and lower branches are large and small; and the fourth branch has the third water potential and the upper narrower and wider branches.

When the water is small, the waterfall is divided into four branches and spread over the whole rock wall. The unique feature of Huangguoshu Waterfall is the water curtain hole hidden on the waist of the waterfall. The water curtain cave is located at the height of 40 to 47 meters of the Great Falls. It is 134 meters long. It has six cave windows, five cave halls, three holes and six water curtain caves. In the water curtain cave, we can see the rainbow on the Rhinoceros Pool from the windows. The rainbow here is not only full of colors, but also dynamic. As long as it is sunny, it can be seen from 9 am to 5 pm, and it changes and moves with people's movement. The predecessors said, "The rainbow in the sky is set off by the sky, and the rainbow in the Rhinoceros Pool is set off by the snow-white waterfall." So the title "Snow reflects the clouds of Sichuan".
