Guizhou Province, also called “Qian” or “Gui”, is located in the southeast part of Southwest China. It dates back to the Song Dynasty when an indigenous lord of clan yielded (along with the land under his control) to the emperor of Song Dynasty – namely Juzhou, the predecessor of today’s Guizhou Province. Guiyang, the capital city of Guizhou, is dubbed the “the Summer Resort Capital” thanks to its very favorable climate even in the middle of scorching summer heat in other parts of China.
With great potential still untapped, Guizhou is a scenic land with rich natural resources, where a variety of ethnic groups live harmoniously. The old saying of ìGuizhou, a land comprised by eighty percent of mountain, ten percent of water and ten percent of fields is an apt description of Guizhou’s plateau-mountain-dominated topography.
Guizhou locals are proud of their world renowned Huangguoshu Waterfall, scenic spots like the Dagon King’s Palace, Chishui, Zhijin Cave, Malinghe Gorge, and national conservation areas like Tongren Fanjing Mountain, Maolan Karst Forest, Chishui National Cyathea Natural Conservation Area, and Grass Sea in Weining.
