Tuole Ancient Ginkgo Scenic Spot is in Tuole Village, Panzhou City, Guizhou Province. There is gurgling water, small bridges and flowing water, beautiful scenery, rolling old trees, small bridges reflecting rainbows, and odd peaks beside temples.

Ginkgo branches stretched out in all directions from paths, ridges, under house foundations, and on stone steps, supporting the entire Tuole Village on the tree roots. The layers of green leaves in the summer are now all golden yellow, and the fallen leaves are covered with slate paths, black-tiled houses, and rice fields after harvest. Even the clear and transparent creek in the village and the small stone bridge on the stream are decorated with scalloped ginkgo leaves in gold.

There are more than 1200 ancient ginkgo plants; the chest diameter is generally 50-150 centimeters, and the maximum is 220 centimeters. The tree’s age is more than 300 years, the longest is 1500 years, and the trunk is tens of meters high. It is the world’s oldest ginkgo growth density and best-preserved place. Every autumn, this is a paradise for photography lovers.
