Tianhe Pool Scenic Area

Tianhe Pool Scenic Area is located in Shiban Town, 23 kilometers (14.3 miles) away from the southwest suburb of Guiyang City of Guizhou Province. It joins the greatness of Huangguoshu Waterfalls and the beauty of the Huaxi together. Tianhe Pool is a typical naturally sunken pit of calcified rocks. The waterfalls, crystal springs, water wheel, deep pools, unusual caves, the stone bridge, strange rock formations, and the farmhouse, all of these make the pool an outstanding tourist destination.

Covering an area of 15 square kilometers (5.8 square miles), this scenic area is a typical Karst cave that features a stone curtain plus a great number of stalagmites, stalactites, and stone pillars. The Scenic Area was originally a large crypt. As water accumulated at the bottom, the pool formed. The area consists of three parts: the Water Cave, the Drought Cave, and the Outer Scenic Area. Visitors can admire clear rivers, hidden caves, silos, cliffs, and stone bridges.

Step into the scenic area, there is a naturally formed stone bridge in spanning two mountains. Go through the bridge arch, the water in the river is like falling down from the sky and formed a deep pool. Hence the name Tianhe Pool means the water in the pool is coming from the sky.

The Water Cave is 1,000 meters (0.6 miles) long, 80 meters (262.5 feet) across at its widest, and 20 meters (65.6 feet) across at its narrowest. It can be reached by boats. It is an interesting experience to row a boat to enjoy the journey from the outside brightness to the inside darkness, and then returning to the sunshine. Considering it is very dark in the inside of the cave, visitors can take an electric torch (flashlight). Outside, below the water cave, is Crouching Tiger Lake, where visitors can see many farm equipment, such as a water mill.
