The scenic area mainly consists of the Xiaoqikong (Small Seven-hole Bridge) Scenic Zone, Daqikong (Large Seven-hole Bridge) Scenic Zone, Shuichun River Scenic Area and Zhangjiang River Scenic Area. The former two, dubbed "Little Jiuzhaigou", unveil a wide array of waterfalls, streams, lakes, forests and fantastic caves.Libo Zhangjiang Scenic Spot is located in Libo County, southern Guizhou, covering an area of about 273 square kilometers. Dubbed a "green gem", this national scenic area features wild karst forests interwoven with beautiful waterscapes and striking valleys and mountains. The area, together with the Maolan National Nature Reserve, an amazingly beautiful karst forest rarely seen in the subtropical zone along the same latitude, was named a World Natural Heritage site in 2007 for its fine examples of karst scenery.

Of all these attractions, the 12-kilometer-long Xiaoqikong Scenic Zone stands out as the most popular one, highly reputed as a life-size miniature garden. Visitors will marvel at the spectacular sights of the ancient stone bridge where the attraction got its name, a 68-layer waterfall, Laya Waterfall, Guibei Mountain, Yuanyang Lake, as well as the water forest.
