Hukou Waterfall 壶口瀑布

 

Hukou waterfall is the largest waterfall on the Yellow River, China, the second largest waterfall in China (after the Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou province), and the world's largest yellow waterfall. It has a height of over 20m. When the Yellow River approaches the Hukou Mountain, blocked by mountains on both sides, its width is abruptly narrowed down. The water were like pouring down from a huge teapot. Hence it gets the name Hukou (literally, "flask mouth") Waterfall.

壶口瀑布是黄河上的最大瀑布,是中国第二大瀑布,世界上最大的黄色瀑布。黄河奔流至此,两岸石壁峭立,河口收束狭如壶口,故名壶口瀑布。瀑布上游黄河水面宽300米,在不到500米长距离内,被压缩到20-30米的宽度。1000立方米/秒的河水,从20多米高的陡崖上倾注而泻,形成“千里黄河一壶收”的气概。
