There live the Miao and Buyi in the park, if you are capable of walking,
you can see the Miao and their residence in the cave, probably this is
the last den residence in China. The Miao here still spend their annuallly
festivals such as " March 3rd", " April 8th", "
June 6th" and " Ancestor Worshipping Festival".
In a word, the scenery here
is particularly beautiful, and it's worth a visit.
Furthermore there are several different Miao in Ziyun county, so if
you have a chance to go to Ziyun, you may make a tour to those villages
and see their traditional festival dress. But just you let know, few foreign
tourists have been to this region, and few tour operators are familiar
with the region, so you need to find a professional tour operator and
guide for your tour for a good trip.
