Located at 17 kilometers south of Guiyang, Huaxi scenic area is endowed with dense vegetation, crystal-clear waters and mountains. It's a famous tourist scenic spot for being exquisite, meandering, quiet and secluded yet at the same time, rough, open and broad.
There are 108 islands of various size and shape on the lake. The islands resemble numerous brilliant stars embellished upon the transparent sky. Layer upon layer of reflections of the surrounding mountains on the lake are so vivid and clear. The lush mountains rising one upon another and the luxuriantly green forests around the lake enhance its beauty and grace.
Called "the flower of Guizhou plateau", Huaxi Park belongs to the Huaxi scenic spot area, which is 350.5 square kilometers in total. The most beautiful feature is the clear streams winding through hills and the flowers providing beautiful displays throughout the four seasons of the year. The water of Huaxi River is clear and clean. Huaxi is home to over 1,000 varieties of cultivated flowers which bloom year round.
Scenic attractions of the park are centered on the four small and exquisite hills: Unicorn, Phoenix, Turtle and Snake. The Unicorn Hill is the major one of the four. It resembles the shape of a prancing unicorn. On the top of the hill, stones of various shapes stand upright like the horn of the unicorn. Yitianting pavilion is built up there, pointing up to the sky and provides a panoramic view of the park.
The Huaxi River serpentines along exquisite small hills which are abound in limestone caves with gurgling underground streams. The clear and graceful waters of the winding Huaxi River flow through hills, over cliffs, under bridges and dash against rock walls, giving rise to myriad little torrents, mini-waterfalls, small poods and tiny shoals. Along its two banks orderly arrayed are houses, terraces, pavilions, towers, villas, hotels, stairways etc. built with superb workmanship. All these add up to its fascinating beauty. A river tour from Dajiang Hill to Biyunwo offers views of beautiful landscapes along the entire river. Jitian Pavilion atop Unicorn Hill provides a panoramic view of the park.
Viewed from afar, the nearby Linshan Hill, less than a hundred meters in height, looks like a natural miniature potted scenery. It's covered with tiers of green rocks, circumscribed by zigzag trails, and penetrated by limestone grottoes. The Tower of Drifting Clouds nestles adroitly within the Hill. Ascending to the Hill top, one has a panoramic view of Huaxi: on the mountain sides, small bridges span the churning streams, waterfalls crash down upon the blue waters, and the rolling river slows down to merge with the belt-shaped small lake. Tourists can enjoy the beautiful sights along the riverbanks in a boat.
All of these make the scenery elaborately and naturally designed. Meanwhile, there are many villages sitting outside the park where you can enjoy the local customs. After climbing to the top of the Kylin Mountain, you can enjoy the entire wonderful scenery of the park and the surrounding countryside. Summer is the best time to visit this park owing to the fresh air and comfortable climate.
The park is really an ideal tourist destination all year round. Crystal-clear streams run like a mirror, bouquets of flowers and peaceful rurality will feast the visitor’s eyes. Therefore, it is considered as a "pearl of the Central Guizhou".
