评级标准 Rating System


每座瀑布都有其特点,所以都值得您的留意。

 

我尝试给每个瀑布来个评级,从1到5,共5个要点。惊艳指数评级越小也就意味着这瀑布缺乏特点,相反之,瀑布就越特别。

 

世上没有任何一个评级标准可以准确的把瀑布给分级。这里每一个评级都是以我当天的历程作为参考,而且大都是在天气良好的情形下前往。由于天气和环境会不停的转变,例如下雨带来洪水摧毁桥梁或发生土崩堵着去路,可让原本容易抵达的地点变成遥不可及。

 

当然,这里的评级都是我个人的感受,所以也只能当个参考而已。请大家要多加留意。

Every waterfall are unique in their very own way. Each and every waterfall in this site deserves your attention. 

 

I'm trying to rank all the waterfalls on a scale of 1 to 5. A total rating of 5 indicate a waterfall is lacking in many aspect. On the other hand, those waterfall with high rating, you can expect a photogenic waterfall or an extraordinary tough trek . This purely subjective and based on my personal preferences. This rating system is strictly for reference only.

 

No rating system can accurately describes trails for all visitors in any weather. The following ratings are based on my visiting experience on the day, mostly are under good weather. The effect of rain can alters the terrain greatly, from easier to impassable. Please choose your trip wisely, with honest appraisal of your equipment and experience in this terrain.

 惊艳指数 WOW Factor
1-5

这个标准是最为主观的。1至5分的等级,会基于瀑布的特点和环境给予评级。不算特别的瀑布就少过2分,当然这不意味着它不值得参观。您可把这个景点当成您行程里的配角,让您的行程更为丰富。

This rating is the most subjective, and 1-5 points will be given based on the beauty of the waterfall. It is decided by surrounding and unique of the waterfall. Those not impressive nor scenic waterfalls will be rated below 2 points. Of course it doesn't meant a low rate waterfall is not worth to visit, suggest that you can add the particular waterfall with other main attractions of the area to make your trip more exited.


注意: 请别认为行程的状况永远都是一样。这里的评级只是提供参考,并不是给予挑战。请时刻为您的旅程准备,并取得最新的资讯。切记,“折返” 永远都不是最坏的选择。

 

NOTE:  DO NOT EXPECT TRAILS OF THAT LEVEL ALL DAY. The rating is not meant to be a challenge, but is often as a warning about one or more difficult places on an otherwise easier, scenic trail. It is always wise to obtain the most up-to-date information prior to departing for a trip, and be prepared. Remember, “turning back” is usually an option as well.
