Photographer's Note

There are many waterfalls in Jiuzhaigou. Pearl Shoal Waterfall is one of larger and better known in the Park, located in Jiuzhaigou, at an altitude of 2,433 metres (7,982 ft), the top of the waterfall is 162.5 metres (533 ft) in width. It has a fall of 40 metres (130 ft). The waterfall exists on one of the tributaries of the Bailong Jiang (White Dragon River).

It is not easy to take a good shot of it because there are so many visitors, they bump into you while you try to take pictures, they want to be inside the picture so they take up the space. On the wooden viewing deck, the tripod doesn’t work because of too many people walking around. One really needed to be patient and or fine spot with less people which is not easy if you want a good POV. I found this place away from the people and still have really good direct view of the waterfall. There are many Chinese movies filmed at this waterfall because of its incredible beauty.
