Hukou Waterfall in NW China embraces spring flood
By Meng Qingsheng

Hukou Waterfall in northwest China's Shaanxi Province has embraced its first spring flood as snow and ice on the upper reaches have melted away.

The flood usually comes between March and April from the Yellow River section in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. When the water travels downstream to Hukou Waterfall, it comes across blossoming peach flowers. Therefore, the spring flood at Hukou Waterfall is also named the "peach blossom flood."

Hukou Waterfall, known as the largest yellow waterfall in the world, is located at the intersection of Shaanxi Province and Shanxi Province. It is divided into two parts by the Yellow River. As the two parts are not connected by a bridge, you must visit them separately.
