When the sun lights above the fog, gorgeous rainbows show up. To the left of the waterfall are the old revoked funeral places. The waterfall falls into a 50-meter-wide deep pool area, which is the origin of water ways in the gorge and underground streams in the cavern. These rivers and streams again shape a huge underground river leading to a new waterfall. Four huge caves are at the entry of the underground river. The caves are deep and bent. If tourists rise 30 meters up the climbing ladder alongside the cliff, they will find out an underground river flowing, falling down along the cliff, and developing into different levels of smaller but crystal clear waterfalls. On the top of the first-level waterfall there are large and various-shaped stalactites. The scenery made of calcareous rock is particularly wonderful.
