When talking about Guizhou, it is the famous Huangguoshu Falls that immediately come in people’s mind. However, there is still a must-go attraction in Guizhou: Seven Small Arches (Xiaoqikong), which is not familiar to people, even some locals.
Located at Wang Meng Township, Libo County in Guizhou Province, Xiaoqikong scenic spot covers an area of 10 square kilometers, and known for its delicate, beautiful, quiet. The United Nations Organization expert groups had once visited Xiaoqikong and regarded it as “the world’s last emeralds on the same latitude”.
There are 68 drops of waterfalls on the Xiangshui River, which is extremely rare in China. Cascading waterfalls run down along the river, wrapped around rocks, trees, forming beautiful and delicate landscape volumes.
Qiannan Buyi and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, located in south-central Guizhou Province, is inhabited by more than 37 ethnic groups, including Han, Miao, Buyi, Shui and Yao. It boasts a lot of karst stone forests, canyons, primitive forests, waterfalls and many other unique natural scenic spots. Its charming waters and mountains together with strong ethnic minorities’ flavors make this region greatly attractive.
The scenic area boasts boundless mountains, crystal creeks, cascading waterfalls, various plants and animals. Xiaoqikong Yuanyang (mandarin duck) Lake Scenic Spot is the only aquatic forest in Karst landscape at that latitude in the world, where grow over 10 kinds of precious trees.
