Wuyang River Scenic Area, famous for its beautiful landscape, historic sites, and dense minority ethnic customs, is located in Zhenyuan, Shibing, and Huangping, three counties of Kaili City in Guizhou Province. Wuyang Scenic Area is geographically divided into Upper Wuyang between Huangping and Shibing and Down Wuyang from Shibing to Zhenyuan. Within these two sections, the most sight-worthy and impressive scenery could be enjoyed in Zhenyuan Ancient Town.

Flowing through the Miaoling Mountains, the charming and lively Wuyang River runs 95 kilometers from Huangping to Zhenyuan, finally into the Yuanjiang River in Hunan Province. Whether you walk along or take a cruise on the Wuyang River, it will bring you one surprise after another. Grotesque gorges, challenging peaks, and crystal-like waters present an excellent picture before you as if you were entering a wonderland.

Wuyang Three Gorges, a 35-kilometer waterway, is the most beautiful section of the whole scenic area. It consists of Dragon King Gorge, East Gorge, and West Gorge. Secluded caves, gurgling springs, rugged rocks, dangerous passes, and spectacular waterfalls interspersed on the mountains of both banks along the three gorges endow the Wuyang River, along with the dangers of Yangtze River Three Gorges and the elegance of Li River in Guilin.
