Welcome to Guoliangcun


Today, the village attracts legions of artists, who journey here to capture the unreal mountain scenery on paper and canvas. Joining them are Chinese tourists who get disgorged by the busloads. For a true rustic mountaintop experience, come on an out-of-season weekday when it’s more tranquil. New buildings have sprung up at the village’s base, but the original dwellings – climbing the mountain slope – retain their simple, rustic charms. Long treks beneath the marvellous limestone peaks more than compensate for the hard slog of journeying here.

Highlights in Guo Liang Cun: 1: Grand Gorge with Red Rocks: Grand Gorge seems being cut by a sharp axe and shows a unique kind of landscape of beautiful red rocks, waterfulls and green plants. Looking the north side of this gorge, you can see a long road through the rocks and its 36 windows. This is the most incredible Guoliang Tunnel. In the south side, you can find some houses and some sturdy elm grown in the cliffs. There is a waterfall pour from the cliff in to the small lake lying in the bottom of the gorge. 2: Sky Ladder: Sky Ladder is one long stone ladder with a long history of more than 600 years, made up of scruffy rocks and the stone pit on the cliffs. It acted as the only road to leave Guo Liang Cun until Guoliang Tunnel was constructed. The hardship of climbing this ladder hinders the communication between Guo Liang Cun and the outside world, so people call it Sky Ladder.  3:Guoliangcun Tunnel: Without one electric equipment or large machinery, the villagers carved a 1300-meter-long Guoling Tunnel along the side of and through the mountain.
