The Baishuizhai Scenic Spot consists of several mountains, the main one being Baishuizhai Mountain at a height of 828 meters. The Baishuizhai Waterfall, with a drop of 428.5 meters, flows down from the Baishuizhai Mountain like a giant white ribbon.
Located in Paitan town in the mountainous northern region of Zengcheng district, the area boasts a rich variety of natural resources, including bamboo forest, ancient trees and a 200-square-kilometer riparian forest. It is regarded as an "emerald" of the Tropic of Cancer.

In spring and summer, clouds and mist blanket the mountains. In autumn and winter, the lush greenery, including some rare and protected species, provide spectacular views.
In order to provide visitors with the best possible travel experience, the scenic spot consists of several routes for visitors to enjoy their time at Baishuizhai. They can choose to climb the "foremost ladder in South China"—a hiking trail with 9,999 steps – or take a sight-seeing bus.
At the foot of the mountain, people can also visit the first greenway in Guangdong, a mountain park, distinctive local restaurants and other entertainment facilities.
