Our driver will pick you up in the hotel lobby in the morning, and drive to see the Loess Plateau. After 3-4 hrs drive, you will arrive at the massive Loess Plateau area to view the special landscape at the north Shanxi Province. Afterwards pay a visit to Hukou Waterfall to see Yellow Rivers marvelous scenery. It is the 2nd largest waterfall in China, next only to the Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou Province.
The Yellow River bed in here suddenly shrinks from some 300 meters to around 50 meters, girdling the pools of the Yellow River water into a narrow gorge and rushing abruptly down from some 30 meters high into the gorge below, while the torrential water runs along a water-channel of some five kilometer long to the lower reaches. As the water-channel looks very much like the mouth of a pot hence the derivation of the name Hukou which means mouth of a pot. Bearing a magnificent momentum the Hukou Waterfall enjoys a marvelous natural landscape all round, being listed as a famous scenic resort in the country. After the tour you will be back to Xian hotel around 9 pm.
Please prepare some food for lunch because it is not easy to find a good restaurant in Hukou Waterfall Scenic Area.
