One thing that makes the Wa Nationality culture famous is the rock painting discoverd in 1965. More than 3,000 years’ history makes it one of the most historical rock paintings of China.
A Wa-styled village. The art works are hidden in the cliff mountains behind it.
At the top of the mountain, there is a huge Tiankeng. Tiankeng refers to an extremely large and deep hole that only can be formed in karstis area when certain contiditions are satisfied. The word “Tiankeng” is actually from Chinese because the spectacles were firstly and intensively found in China.
Humans are hard to reach Tiankeng, so it is a relatively closed environment. A lot of unique and precious species are being saved in it. The trees in the picture are Caryota urens L.
Unknown plant on the mountain
Fungi on a old tree. Looks like something edible.
At last we found the painted rock in the jungle. Actually most paintings are difficult to identify. This one has been repainted. The paintings are about ancient Wa people’s daily life, e.g. grazing, war, hunting etc.
