It was built in 1957, and is a uniquely large park that has been designated as a 4A National Tourist Attraction. The name was derived from the Qianling Mountain that lies in the park, which is the most famous mountain in southern Guizhou, and it boasts clear waters, green slopes, tranquil forests and old temples. There are six predominant scenic locations: Sanlingwan, Macaque Monkey Garden, Hongfu Temple, Kylin Cave, the Zoo, Qianling Lake, and the Winding Mountain Path. We stay the night in Guiyang.

Taking a kayak to drift down the rapid river is a must-do activity here. We stay the night in Guiyang.
Day 4: Guiyang – Rongjiang
In the morning, we head to Rongjiang to enjoy the wonderful Moon Mountain rice terraces. The vegetation of Moon Mountain has been well preserved along with its biological diversification. As a gem of ecology and ancient Chinese culture, the mountain has a warm and humid climate, and wide varieties of rare animals and plants. This area has seen few tourists until recently because it lies in a hidden corner. For sure it will be busier in due time as the views of the rice terraces are simply fabulous.
