    Judging from the mountainous terrain and the river in the last picture, i guess it is Sichuan province, southeast of China. Not very sure, though.

    There is no HSR train runs directly between Beijing and Guanghzhou so far, because HSR line which is going to connect Beijing and Guangzhou directly has not been finished yet. Besides, no one will take a HSR train from Guangzhou to Beijing, people would rather take a flight.

    However, if people insist on taking HSR from Guangzhou to Beijing, they can take a HSR from Guangzhou to Wuhan first, then tranfer to the HSR from Wuhan to Bejing. The cost is estimated to be 771RMB.

    From Guangzhou to Wuhan
    Available train: G1022, G102, G102, G102, G1030, ..., G1100, G1102, G1104, G1106, G1108.
    Ticket price: 490RMB for second class

    From Wuhan to Beijing
    Available train: D124, D126, D122
    Ticket price: 281 RMB for second class

    It is En'shi Prefecture, Hubei Province. It is the poorest and most lonely prefecture in Hubei Province.

    En'shi city, the capital of En'shi Autonomous Prefecture,Hubei Province

    En'shi Prefecture is 24,061 Square KMs large and has a population of 3.8 M. 50% of its population are ethnical Minorities such as Tujia and Miao.So,it is a autonomous prefecture.

    Due to its moutainous terrain, En'shi has always been the poorest and most lonely prefecture in Huibei Province. And I think it is also one of poorest prefectures in China .

    The Miaos are indeed poor and it is not because of the mountainous region that they are poor.

    They are mainly distributed across Guizhou, Yunnan, Hunan and Sichuan provinces and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and a small number live on Hainan Island in Guangdong Province and in southwest Hubei Province. Most of them live in tightly-knit communities, with a few living in areas inhabited by several other ethnic groups.

    The construction of railways between Guiyang and Kunming, and between Hunan and Guizhou apparently has boosted the development of the Miao areas along the routes. In the early days there were not even bus services.


    A large majority of Miaos are Christians.

    This is how a Miao village appears to be:

    [​IMG]

    Because timber resources are plentiful in most Miao areas, houses are usually built of wood, and roofed with fir bark or tiles or are thatched. In central and western Guizhou, houses are roofed with stone slabs.

    Houses vary greatly in style. In mountainous areas, they are usually built on slopes and raised on stilts. Animals are kept under the stilted floors. In the Zhaotong area in Yunnan and on Hainan Island, most Miaos live in thatched huts or "branch houses," made of woven branches and twigs or bamboo strips plastered with mud.

    Miao are also in Laos, and Viet Nam (Hmong). In USA also lots of Hmong refugees.

    Thousands of years ago their ancestors scattered in reaches of Yellow River. In legends King Chi-You was defeated by Han's ancestors Huang Di (Yellow Emporer) and thereafter Miao started their migration southward continuous for thousands of years.

    well, Miao is closely connected with Han. Most Miaos except those in lonely villages are in fact completely Hanized.

    The Miao youth have some affinity to Marxism, but the older generation continues to believe in their ways, custom and are not quite as Hanised as maybe thought to be.

    They are a fiercely independent minded people and because of the mountainous area have to some extent maintained their identity.

    That is what I was told by some Miao people I met.
