Scenes From China’s Guizhou Province (28 photos)

Mountainous Guizhou province, in southwestern China, is home to more than 34 million people.

From remote hilltop Buddhist monasteries to ancient villages, to the skyline of the capital city of Guiyang, gathered here are a few glimpses of Guizhou and its residents.
