Detian Transnational Waterfall Scenic Spot (5A)




Updated: 2020-09-10

The Detian Transnational Waterfall Scenic Spot is located between Daxin county, Chongzuo city, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region and Trung Khanh district in Northeast Vietnam's Cao Bang province.

The waterfall is the biggest cross-border waterfall in Asia and the fourth-largest in the world. It is usually divided into two separate waterfalls but sometimes merges together during the summer rains.

Located on a 200-meter wide bluff, the waterfall is about 70 meters high, and its thrashing waters, which rush down a three-tiered cliff with tremendous force, are audible from quite a distance.

Surrounded by karst formations, lush green vegetation and fiery red kapoks, the waterfall is truly a sight to behold for any lover of nature.

The scenic spot is recognized as a Chinese Characteristic International Tourism Destination, National Ecological Tourism Demonstration Area, and one of Guangxi's Top 10 Tourist Attractions.
