Zhenshan Village in SW China offers culture and captivating scenery

Can't decide between hitting the coast or hiking up a mountain? In the village of Zhenshan in Guiyang City, southwest China's Guizhou Province, nature lovers don't have to choose. The community majestically perched atop a mountain is surrounded by water from three sides.

It was built between 1573 and 1620 and its residents are mostly members of the Buyi ethnic group. In 2000, an ecomuseum was sponsored by Norway to preserve the Buyi culture.
