  The waterfalls appear in groups. Big ones interlink with small ones. Such a pattern gives the waterfalls a changeful feature. From the formation to the disappearance of a riverbed waterfall, it must experience a lot of changes. Under the action of head ward erosion, the regeneration and aging of a waterfall as well as the occurrence or disappearance of a waterfall may take place and finish within a short period of time. The waterfalls are only the present manifestation in the process of such fast changes, so to speak, the waterfall recorded by the British explorer F-M Belly and the waterfall recorded by the British botanist, F.K ward, have all disappeared by now.
