As a mountainous region, Guizhou situated at South China and boarded beautiful Guilin in South. The high mountains and crisscrossing steep canyons help form a relatively close geographic environment. For centuries, people here live in harmony with nature but with little communication with the outside world. Therefore their ancient cultural traditions and life styles are well preserved. Different ethnic groups , different villages are so varied in life style, tradition and belief. They are “ cultural islands “, no matter how close they are from each other in geography. Behind these “cultural islands” there exists a broad spiritual world, rich in history’s mystery and magic. Guizhou has thus become a live nature and a “nature and bio-system museum” .
