Guizhou is abundant in tourism resources. Distinct Karst Landform endows it with grotesque mountains, limpid rivers, and fascinating caves. There is not only beautiful natural scenery, such as the Hongfeng Lake Scenic Area (the Red Maple Lake) and Baihua (Hundred Flower) Lake; but also cultural landscape, such as Qingyan Ancient Town, Xifeng Concentration Camp and Yangming Cave. Besides, the colorful minority customs and festivals add more charm to it.
