Guizhou Province is a hidden gem in the southwest of China. Its unfamiliarity to travelers and tourists kept most of its landscape and local minority culture relatively untouched. As a mountainous province, it has abundance of peculiar natural scenery, aboriginal, and mysterious landscape.

Guizhou is home to more than 15 major ethnic minority groups and it’s a wonderful experience to visit various minority villages and discover the rich and distinctive folk customs and cultures. In many of the local villages built during the Ming Dynasty, local people today are still living and dressing in the Ming Dynasty style. Guizhou is also famed by the 250ft drop Huangguoshu Waterfall, known to be the biggest waterfall in China and eastern Asia.

Departure

Private tour with daily departure.

Pickup from Guiyang airport or train station.
