Nestled in the remote mountains of Guizhou, the region’s colorful minority cultures were, until recently, cut off from the outside world. Today, their timeless heritage lives on, from their music to the histories stitched onto their clothes. Explore the Forest of Ten Thousand Peaks, hike to the summit of Guizhou’s highest mountain, and meet people who are worth stitching into your own memories.
Guizhou may be one of the poorest provinces in China, but it is remarkably rich in minority culture and natural beauty. This southwestern province is home to several minorities, including many types of Miao as well as the Yi and Buyei people, each with their own special clothing, customs, and language. Guizhou’s natural beauty ranges from jutting karst peaks and gushing waterfalls to river gorges and azalea gardens. On this trip, discover the hidden side of Guizhou: wander inside a cave village, visit a floating stone forest, enjoy a Buyei musical performance, and indulge in some bird watching at a nature reserve.
