-Qingman Miao Village: Located 23 kilometers southwest away from Kaili city. One of the biggest characteristics here is that a guest who visits a household at will may have witnessed the entire process of traditional Miao clothes-making. The main traditional clothing material is the homemade cloth span, woven, and dyed all by the Miaos. The widespread local song "Cotton Song" states the entire process of looking for the cotton seed, seed selection, land reclamation, sowing, harvesting cotton, getting rid of seed, bowing cotton, spinning, reeling thread, dyeing, and sewing. In each household you can see dye vats used for dying cotton material. This kind of dye vat is made of the cedar plank, approximately 2 and half feet high, one meter in diameter. The dye vat must be raised because it takes about one month to finish dying a bolt of cloth by indigo dying water and this process is called “raising vat”.

We recently returned from the Guizhou minority tour and had a great time. We could have easily missed the museum in KaiLi but our visit to Qingman and Shiqiao Miao villages was one of the highlights of our entire China trip. One of the great things about this tour was these are real villages and not geared so more..
