As one of the most fascinating ethnic minorities in China, Miao ethnic groups are everywhere in southwest China, mostly in Guizhou Province. Exploring Chinese Miao minority villages in Guizhou, one will be fascinated by the locals' exotic dress, daily life and the unique architecture of their wooden stilted houses. Xijiang Miao Village is one such place that researchers call a a national open-air museum for the study of Miao people's history and traditional culture.

Xijiang Miao Village is located by the valley and surrounded by overlapping mountains, with terraced fields rising along the slopes to the clouds and the Baishui (White Water) River flowing through and cutting the village into two. Miao hillside wooden stilted houses stand tier upon tier along the two banks to the mountain. Thick bamboo groves are dotting before and behind the houses. Beautiful maple leaves cover the villages on the top and at the bottom of the mountain.

The village is also featured by grand festivals and celebrations of Miao people. They have many traditional festivals all year round, such as Lusheng Festival, Sisters' Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, and the Harvest Celebration, during which the Miao people worship their ancestors and celebrate the autumn harvest.
