Here, more than 1,000 ancient ginkgo trees grow into a forest within an area of less than 3 km2. Ginkgo is an ancient tree species dated back to the glacial period, renowned as the “Gongsun Tree” (indicating longevity in Chinese) and a “living fossil”.

Jiabang Terraced Field, reputed as one of the most beautiful terraced fields in China, is located in the hinterland of the Moon Mountain in the west of Congjiang County in the southeast of Guizhou Province. It is built along the mountain, and its shape varies with the changes of the landform. In the terraced fields are strewn with some wooden stilt houses of the local Miao ethnicity. The Jiabang Terraced Field is a masterpiece of the local Miao people from generation to generation.

The “Golden Avenue” in Huaxi, Guizhou Province, was built in 1956, with a total length of 560 meters. As early as that time, 115 oriental plane trees were planted alongside the Huaxi River. In late autumn, when leaves of the oriental plane trees gradually turn yellow, the whole avenue looks like being covered with gold as you view it from distant mountains, hence the name. If you step on the leaf-clad road, you may hear the crunch of these fallen leaves. So welome to Huaxi to enjoy the picturesque “Golden Avenue”. Don’t miss your date with the autumn.

The Osmanthus Fragrans Terrace is a 40-meter-high cliff terrace on the bank of the Bazhou River in Liping County, Guizhou.

In autumn, when flowers are in full bloom with widespread fragrance, it is renowned as “a sweet-smelling Osmanthus Fragrans Terrace with the fragrance wafting far, far away”. Local villagers also pick Osmanthus fragrans to make pastries, honey, and other desserts, making the whole village immersed in the fragrance of Osmanthus fragrans.

The Shexiang Museum, located in Dafang County, Guizhou, is a unique pseudo-classic building with the traditional architectural characteristics of the Yi ethnic minority.
