Guiyang
\
Guiyang is the capital of Guizhou Province, located at an elevation of 3,000 feet in the very center of the southwest province. It is dominated by mist-shrouded hills that surround the Wujiang Valley. 
 
The climate is mild throughout the year, much like that in Kunming, the capital of neighboring Yunnan Province.
 
The most interesting scenic spot in the city is the Southern Cave, or the "Underground Park" as the locals call it. About half a mile in length, the cave contains spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.
 
A three-hour journey west from Guiyang will take you to the Huangguoshu waterfall. It is one of the biggest falls in China, reaching 316 feet in height and spanning 346 feet in width. Water pours down the cliff into the Xiniu Pool and as sunlight is diffracted through the drops of water, glorious rainbows are produced. There is a natural cave behind the waterfall, 131 feet above Xiniu Pool. Standing inside and watching the water pouring down is an unforgettable sight. Around Huangguoshu are 18 smaller falls and 30 karst caves.
