Guizhou, located in southwest China, is a province known for its mountainous terrain and stunning natural landscapes. It is often referred to as the “Province of Mountain Parks” due to its abundance of mountains and national parks. The province’s land area is dominated by the unique “Karst landscape,” which covers around 62% of the region.
Guizhou’s natural beauty continues to attract foreign tourists who are fascinated by its odd-shaped mountains, picturesque waters, and rich ecological environment. It has been described as a place of “80% mountains, 10% waters, and 10% farmland.”
In the short video series “Be My Guest · Modern Guizhou,” foreign visitors are invited to experience the real lives of locals in Guizhou. In one episode, two visitors, Tarada Valeriya and Dimitrieva Tatiana, were taken by outdoor adventure photographer Zhou Yuanjie to explore Shuanghe Cave in Suiyang, Zunyi, Guizhou.
During their visit, Valeriya and Tatiana not only learned outdoor adventure skills from Zhou Yuanjie but also received valuable knowledge about caves and geology from Jean Bottazzi, a renowned cave explorer. They were amazed by the variety of activities available in the deep mountains of Guizhou, including descending from the outside of mountains and “flying over cliffs” from the inside. The continuous mountains of Guizhou reminded them of the Chinese idiom, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”
This spelunking trip left a lasting impression on Valeriya and Tatiana, who were deeply attracted to Guizhou’s unique landforms and beautiful landscapes. They expressed their desire to explore more of Guizhou in the future and experience its natural scenery in other areas.
Guizhou’s natural wonders and adventurous spirit make it a must-visit destination for tourists seeking outdoor exploration and stunning views.
