Guangdong Grand Canyon lies in Dabu Town, 68 kilometers southwest of Yao Autonomous County of Ruyuan, Shaoguan. The canyon, one of the quartz sandstone canyon landforms, is 15 kilometers long and more than 300 meters deep with its width varying from one hundred meters to over a thousand meters. The bottom of the canyon is smooth at some point and the Hukou Waterfall rushes 200 meters from the disconnected precipices down to the valley bottom, breaking the smooth mirror at the bottom.
