Your day trip starts when you are picked up from your hotel in Guiyang by the guide (our guide will contact you in advance to confirm the pickup time) and taken on a 2.5 hour drive to reach the spectacular Huangguoshu Waterfall, the largest in China and the largest in the cluster of falls on the Baishui River. Viewing platforms enable you to capture different views of this natural phenomenon – from the pavilion in front of the falls and from a viewing aisle in a cave behind the curtain of water. A long escalator carries you to the exit.
Gain a sense of the military culture in Tianlong Ancient Castle, where residents are descendants of the army in the Ming dynasty Hongwu period (1368-1398). Residents still adhere to the Ming dynasty’s way of life, language, costume, houses, religious faith and lifestyle. As you stroll the streets taking in the atmosphere of this piece of history, your guide will share interesting information and anecdotes about the village’s history and attractions. Of particular note is the type of architecture, especially the distinctive forts resonant of defense capability, and stone houses in military color built around a courtyard. Take time out for a cup of herbal tea before attend the local Ground Opera performance of one of the oldest plays that combines a worship ceremony with entertainment.
You will then be returned to your hotel in Guiyang.
