Qianling Park Guide

-Travel to Qianling Park

Qianling Park is located only a few kilometers away from Guiyang and one of the few parks located in an urban area that is more than 300 hectares. It is named after Mt. Qianlingshan which was awarded the title of  "The first Mountain in South China". The park is home to old trees, Qianling Lake, Seven Star Lotus Pond and many other scenic spots. Along Nine Winds Path there are ancient engraved calligraphies that are drawn by several calligraphy masters, including Zhao Dechang in the Qing Dynasty. There are eight predominant scenic locations: Sanlingwan, Macaque Garden, Hongfu Temple, Kylin Cave, the Zoo, Qianling Lake, the Wind-Rain Bridge, and the Winding Mountain Path.

Qianling Lake was made by damming the Daluo Spring in 1954. The crystalline surface mirrors the green and gentle willows and omately decorated and finely built pavilions.On the western bank stands a memorial to the martyrs who died during the war for the liberation of Guizhou Province. Qianling Park, with 98% forest cover, is the perfect habitat for macaques and more than 500 of them live in the Macaque Garden. Qianling Cave is taking the 382-step Nine-Twist Path Leads. In front of the cave flows a 400-year-old spring. Amongst stalactites of various shapes hanging inside, there is a huge one weighed down like a kylin, a beast symbolizing auspice in China, giving the cave its present name. The cave is noted for its reputation that Chiang Kai-Shek, the leader of Chinese Nationalist Party at that time, captured the patriotic generals Zhang Xueliang and Yang Hucheng at the cave during the War of Resistance against Japan.

Another fascinating thing to see here is the Macaque Park, home to more than 500 wild macaques. Here, you are able to get up close to these animals and observed their behavior. Besides these above, there are also other attractions like the new Xiangwang Mountain, Ancient-Buddha Cave, and Kanzhu Pavilion, etc. All of them have their own picturesque charm.
