Shilin Yunnan China Shilin-Stone-Forest by CEphoto, Uwe Aranas

The Stone Forest, near the welcoming city of Kunming, is another of China's huge collection of natural wonders. A sea of towering powerful limestone pillars rise side-by-side amid lakes, ponds, forests, caves, underground rivers and waterfalls, to create a powerful spectacle. The area is explored on a series of winding paths, leading from one breathtaking vista to the next. The entire area was believed to have once been submerged below the sea, but as the waters receded and the ground rose, the extraordinary karst landscape revealed itself, exposing it to the elements that have carved its bizarre rock formations over centuries. The park is split between the Greater and Lesser forests, as well as the quieter Naigu dolomite rock forest.
Kunming is known as the City of Eternal Spring thanks to its temperate year-round climate and attractive blooming flowers. The highlights include the attractive central lake park and some impressive temples.
