Guizhou Province is unfamiliar to many travelers and tourists. However, the peculiar natural scenery, remarkable national customs, brilliant history, culture and the pleasant climate condition form a unique, aboriginal, unsophisticated and mysterious landscape which is attracting more and more tourists, both domestic and international.
The area is mountainous, and there are many opportunities for hiking. The paths can be slippery due to animal excrement and the bushes can be thorny. There is much beautiful scenery including valley views and distant horizons. One of the greatest attractions to Guizhou is the Huangguoshu Waterfall, known to be the biggest waterfall in China.
Guizhou in general is pleasant to visit all year round. However, due to the changeful weather on the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, it does have more rainfall than any other part of the China, specially between Mar and Aug. In order to better experience the colorful minority culture, the best time to visit is during early spring when many local festivals are taking place.
