Located in the west outskirt of Guiyang, Guiyang Red Maple Lake covers an area of 200 square meters, a key national scenic spot in China integrating the sights of a plateau lake, karst formations, and ethnic cultures.

Guiyang Red Maple Lake is a typical karst plateau lake dotted with over 170 islets of various sizes and surrounded by grand and beautiful mountains. Guiyang Red Maple Lake is an ideal place for ecotourism. Sailing on the lake, you can enjoy the cliffs, the bends, the flying gulls and egrets, and the fishes jumping in the rapids. Traveling in the surrounding mountains, you can enjoy the twittering birds and lush trees. The natural karst caves together with the lake and the mountains form amazing sights featuring islets in a lake among mountains; caves hidden in the islets and the lake running through the caves. The karst caves at Jiangjun Bend are the most famous.

With the Miao, Bouyei, Yi and other ethnic groups living around for generations, ethnic culture tourism is an indispensable part of the Guiyang Red Maple Lake. In 1991, the Dong Village was open to the public, being the first village built for ethic culture tourism in scenic areas of China. Afterwards, the Miao Village and the Bouyei Village were completed successively. The ethnic culture tourism is the most dynamic tourism project in the Guiyang Red Maple Lake. The Guiyang Red Maple Ethnic Villages has become an important window displaying the customs and cultures of the ethnic groups in Guizhou Province.
