Experience the Vitality of Guizhou
5-Day Guizhou Spring Tour
Guizhou Province has long been an underachiever in economic development. However, its unique landscape has preserved much of its original ecology and traditional culture.
Let's visit her this spring! Walk among the incredible azalea flowers, witness its nationally-famous waterfall, experience camping in a limestone cave, learn the heritage crafts of its local minority people, and discover China's great projects hidden in the mountains and how they have changed the fate of Guizhou.
Tour "wow" Points
Dive into the Ocean of Azalea Flowers (for tours in April)
Visit the biggest 'natural garden' in the world. Walk in the colorful azalea forest. It is just like wandering in a fairyland.
Be Embraced by the Lovely Colors of Spring — Greens and Pinks (for tours in middle March)
Walk on a big farm with a cherry forest and tea plantation. When your right-hand side is light pink and the other side is fresh green, you may feel like you are delightfully sandwiched by two flavors of cake — cherry and matcha tea flavors!
Feel the Power and Gentleness of Guizhou's Magnificent Waterfalls
Enjoy the magnificent view of the Huangguoshu waterfall. It has a powerful “melody” created by water and land. Its spray on your face feels like a veil of silk.
Hike among the Peak Forest
Follow a local ethnic minority villager to explore his/her remarkable homeland. The quirky landscape, peaceful villages, and optimistic people who make their living there are all highlights.
Experience Camping in a Limestone Cave
Stay in a vaulted masterpiece of the karst landscape. Enjoy a meal cooked by local Buyi people (one of China's official ethnic minorities) and listen to their stories.
Marvel at the World's Largest Radio Telescope Inlaid into the Mountains
You may fail to feel how advanced Guizhou is (in places) until you pay a visit to FAST (Five-hundred-meter-Aperture Spherical radio Telescope). It might help us to connect with extraterrestrial intelligence one day!.
Learn to Make Traditional Handicrafts with Local Minority People
Dye a handkerchief with wax in a beautiful traditional pattern designed by Guizhou's Miao people. Or learn to make a bird cage with a beautiful Miao girl.

What Our Customers Said
Lhasa Tibet Adventure
Coco helped us plan our ideal trip to recent trip Tibet. She was informative, patient, and helped us tailor the trip to our own needs. She made excellent suggestions and supported us with the permits, travel itinerary, and even flights. She is an incredible asset to the China Highlights Team! Our local guide Tenzin was also excellent and flexible with us each day. I was hit with some altitude sickness and Tenzin helped me get oxygen and medicine needed. He worked with us each day to help us eat local foods and recommended ideal times to visit sites to minimize wait times. We were able to see everything on our list and eat excellent food. Thank you Coco and Tenzin!more

Top of the World!
From our welcome at the airport with the traditional Tibetan scarves to our departure 3 days later, out time in Lhasa was nothing short of fabulous! Our guide, Tenzin was exceptionally energetic, knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure our time was spent experiencing the many wonderful sites as well as learning about the history and culture of this exciting place.Thank you to China Highlights and their local partners, in particular our fabulous guide Tenzin for organizing and executing a most wonderful trip!more

Great time with the Best Guide Norbu
I can’t say enough good things about China Highlights as they organized everything for us - the visa, guide and itinerary. When I asked for changes to make sure we saw the debates (none on sundays) they made the change. When my daughter was suffering from altitude sickness itinerary was adjusted to give her more time to recover. We had a fantastic guide - Norbu. His background was as interesting as Lhasa. While all of the guides we have had so far have had good English command, some are harder to understand than others making it hard work at times. Norbu’s English is embarrassingly good (as I have no capability in any other languages and am dependent on others learning English). He was very kind to my daughter while she was struggling. I highly recommend you ask for him as he will add to the enjoyment of your tripmore

LHASA - TIBET WITH KELSANG FROM CHINA HIGHLIGHTS
KELSANG was our Guide Tour in LHASA - TIBET. His English was great and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Since he picked us up from the airport till we left LHASA, KELSANG had always a smile, showed us his heart and soul and accommodate all our needs. We had a great time with KELSANG! All places mentioned above are unique and very special! Our experience in Tibet was stunning and we will not forget it for the rest of our lives! We will highly recommend KELSANG as your local guide tour in TIBET and ask for ALISA when contacting China Highlights as she will organize your tours as no one else will! Believe me!more

china highlights is well organized(Tibet and Beijing)
I could say so many wonderful things about China Highlights; they have great qualified, knowledgeable guides and drivers, they understand the flight in and out and work around it beautifully, the prices are good, and the correspondence is top notch. Bit tops I would say, is they are efficient and organized. It can be a little worrisome planning a trip to the other side of the world. My agent through the whole process was Coco and she couldn't have done better. She answered every question, before and during the trip.more

Itinerary Quick Look
Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.
Your personal guide and drive will meet you at the airport. You will have a 2-hour drive from the airport to Dafang, where the azalea forest park is.
Walk in the azalea forest park before the day-tour tourists arrive. Enjoy the different colors and different species of azalea. Cross a suspension bridge to reach a pavilion on the top of a hill for an incredible view of this "azalea ocean". Your guide will help you to find the best places for pictures.
Head for Anshun in the afternoon.
Visit Huangguoshu Waterfall in the morning. It's the largest waterfall in China. Enjoy the magnificent views created by the tumbling river and karst formations. Walk into the cave behind the waterfall, which was the home of the monkey king in the famous Chinese novel "The Journey to the West", making Huangguoshu the earliest Waterfall in Chinese literature.
We'll drive to Ditang in the afternoon, where you will camp in a limestone cave overnight. The local Buyi people will come to cook for you. Enjoy a special "cave dinner" with a mountain view at nightfall.
Be woken up by the birds'singing. Follow a local Buyi villager to explore the nearby peak forest, passing rice paddies and Buyi villages. Let your local villager guide unveil his/her hard but happy life.
Drive to Danzhai in the afternoon. Visit the site of the enormous FAST telescope on the way. Witness the world's largest aperture and understand how it is a world-leader. The 'sky eye' of China is a milestone in Chinese people's quest to plumb the mysteries of the universe.
Stay in a hot spring resort for the night. It is like a Guizhou-ethnic-culture theme park. Some items of intangible cultural heritage are displayed and practiced there. It might be a little bit too commercial, but currently it could be the best way to protect and pass down traditional arts, crafts, and practices.
Have a relaxing walk in the resort to appreciate the buildings and their ethnic minority style. Learn and experience batik or birdcage making.
Visit an authentic village surrounded by terraced fields. Be moved again by the incredible landscape and the hard work of the people of Guizhou.
We'll finish the tour by driving you to Guiyang's airport for your flight back home.
