The Yellow River Hukou Waterfall is located in the channel of the Yellow River where it passes through the Qin Jin Grand Canyon. To the east of the falls is Shanxi's Linfen region, and to the west of the falls is Yichuan County, Yan'an, Shaanxi Province. The section of the falls in Shaanxi is located 35 kilometers east of Yichuan County, Yan’an. Because the Yellow River carries so much sediment, this is one of the few places on earth you can see a yellow waterfall. The scenery of Hukou Waterfall changes through each of the four seasons.
