Introduction about the Senic Spots

Libo Zhangjiang Scenic Spot

Libo Zhangjiang Scenic Spot mainly consists of the Xiaoqikong (Small Seven-hole Bridge) Scenic Zone, Daqikong (Large Seven-hole Bridge) Scenic Zone, Shuichun River Scenic Area and Zhangjiang River Scenic Area. The former two, dubbed "Little Jiuzhaigou", unveil a wide array of waterfalls, streams, lakes, forests and fantastic caves. 

Libo Zhangjiang Scenic Spot is located in Libo County, southern Guizhou, covering an area of about 273 square kilometers. Dubbed a "green gem", this national scenic area features wild karst forests interwoven with beautiful waterscapes and striking valleys and mountains. The area, together with the Maolan National Nature Reserve, an amazingly beautiful karst forest rarely seen in the subtropical zone along the same latitude, was named a World Natural Heritage site in 2007 for its fine examples of karst scenery.

Xiaoqikong Scenic Area is along the Xiangshui River and is where the Miao ethnic minority of China live.  The Yao’s village still maintains their traditional way of life within their autonomous area.  The Southern Karst, a UNESCO world heritage site, the landscape created many scenic sights along the way and also many recreational areas for boating, rafting, and caverns to explore.

Of all these attractions, the 12-kilometer-long Xiaoqikong Scenic Zone stands out as the most popular one, highly reputed as a life-size miniature garden. Visitors will marvel at the spectacular sights of the ancient stone bridge where the attraction got its name, a 68-layer waterfall, Laya Waterfall, Guibei Mountain, Yuanyang Lake, as well as the water forest. The water forest provides great views of bizarre plants growing in the water.

Xijiangqianhu Miao Villages

The village cluster, known as an open-air museum, displays the authentic and well-preserved distinctive culture and customs of the Miao people. Visitors can take a peek at original Miao dances, customs, rites, costumes and silver ornaments.Known as the biggest Miao village in the world, the One-Thousand-Household Miao Village of Xijiang is located 36 kilometers northeast of Leishan County in the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, southeastern Guizhou. It consists of more than ten naturally formed villages that have been long inhabited by nearly 1,300 Miao households (hence the name).

The Miao people have their typical architectural characteristic: wooden houses built tier upon tier on the hillside, dotted with bamboo groves. Lying amidst green mountains, the village enjoys beautiful settings, with the terraced fields rising up along the slopes and the crystal-clear Baishui River flowing through. It offers a more spectacular view when it's lit up in the evening.

Huangguoshu Waterfall

The waterfall, the largest waterfall in China and one of the most famous ones in the world, is the only waterfall that can be viewed from above, below, front, back, left and right on the planet. It is 77.8 meters high and 101 meters wide. The main waterfall is 67 meters high and 83.3 meters wide. The Water Curtain Cave, a 134-meter-long naturally formed corridor behind the waterfall, allows visitors to watch, hear and touch the thundering streams making their way down. A colorful rainbow arching across the waterfall from time to time turns the splendid waterscape into a real feast for the eyes.Needless to say, the Huangguoshu Waterfall is Guizhou's most spectacular attraction. Located in Zhenning County, Anshun City, the scenic area can be found about 45 kilometers southwest of the city proper and 128 kilometers away from Guiyang, the provincial capital.

The waterfall, along with 18 minor but equally beautiful waterfalls, such as the Luositan Waterfall, Silver-Chain Waterfall and Dishuitan Waterfall, is also known as the Huangguoshu Waterfalls Cluster. It was included into the Guinness Book of World Records in 1999 as the world's largest waterfall cluster.
