Mong Village, Guizhou, 2006
The backwater province of Guizhou in China's south-west is not a top tourist destination and therefore offers the intrepid explorer an authentic peek into traditional lifestyles of a rich variety of minority people living in serene mountain landscape.
I took the photo above as our small group of four was approaching a Mong people's village. On the right you see what is called a Wind & Rain Bridge. Traditionally these elaborate bridges, long covered corridors made of wood, were built by the Dong people, but the concept was adopted by others over time.
Here is a close up of the covered bridge:
