Huangguoshu Falls_Anshun_Guizhou_china waterfalls At just under 80 meters tall and a little over 100 meters wide, stunning Huangguoshu Falls are the biggest in China and are the centerpiece of a scenic that includes a total of 18 falls, ranking it as the Guinness Book of World Records largest "family" of waterfalls. A cave runs behind them, allowing visitors to stand mere meters from the awesome force of the cascading waters. Huangguoshu Falls are  located in Guizhou, a province whose karst mountain scenery rivals neighboring Guangxi. Guizhou's impoverishment and poor infrastructure have meant it has always flown fairly low on the western tourist radar, but a wealth of fascinating ethnic minority cultures and their colorful festivals make visits to Guizhou a truly unique, if not always easy, experience. For more pictures and travel tales from Guizhou, join the Grooms, a pair of backpacking old age pensioners on their trip through Guizhou in 2008....
