Experiencing Guiyang in Qianling Park

2013-03-20 13:24     Web Editor: Wang YuXia comment

Qianling Park is located in the northwestern of Guiyang City, Guizhou Province. The name "Qianling" was derived from Qianling Mountain inside the garden. Qianling Park was listed as a 4A National Tourist Attraction, covering a large area of 426 hectares. The whole park consists of eight main scenic areas including Hongfu Temple, Qianling Lake, Kylin Cave, Sanling Bay, Macaque Garden, the Zoo, Two-Dam Wind-Rain Bridge, and the Winding Mountain Path.

Walking in the garden, visitors always go to Hongfu Temple at first. Besides, Qianling Lake is a perfect place to take a seat and enjoy leisure time. It was made by the damming of Daluo Spring in 1954. Water in the lake is pure and crystal clean. There is a monument standing in front of the lake for the memory of heroes who died during the war of liberation of Guizhou Province. Sitting around the lake, time flies like gentle breeze. No doubt it's a good choice for holidaymakers who are longing for quiet and leisure atmosphere.   

Another interesting place to go in the garden is Kylin Cave, which is down along the 382-step Nine-Twist Path. Kylin exists only in the old Chinese legend. Chinese people regard it as a beast symbolizing auspice and believe it could bring peace and lucky. Among stalactites of various shapes hanging inside the cave lying a huge weighed stone kylin, giving the cave its present name. In front of the cave there flowing a tiny spring which has a history of more than 400 years. 

Visitors who love sport could choose to climb Qianling Mountain, which is not high but enough for some daily exercise. After climbing the mountain and arriving at the top, a panoramic view of Guiyang city lies under the feet. Modern buildings, old residential community, and a busy city…

A lot of local people do exercise, take a walk or just spend their day in Qianling Park. Here visitors could taste the real Guiyang life style and meet Guizhou people. If speaking Chinese, surely an interesting talking with the local could be a good choice.
