Stone Forest Tour

Stone ForestTourists can visit some 80 hectares of the 26,000-hectare Stone Forest in Lu'nan Yi Nationality Autonomous County 120 kilometres southwest of Kunming. From a distance, the area does indeed look like a stone forest with its peaks and odd-shaped rocks standing straight up from the ground. A closer look takes visitors along natural stone chasms, corridors, grottoes, caves, bridges, terraces and pavilions. Spring and lake waters wind among the pinnacles to add to the unique beauty of the Stone Forest.

The strange shapes of some of the rocks - some resemble wrestlers locked in fight, or a baby leaning against his mother, others look like sharp swords, animals and birds - have given rise to legends such as the one about Ashima, a beautiful and talented young woman of the Sani people, which can be told by travel guides.

Though both Stone Forest and Guilin are located in karst areas, the Stone Forest pinnacles are much rougher than those of Guilin. According to archeologists and geologists, the limestone peaks-sculpted by weathering and corrosion over the centuries - were formed 280 million years ago.

Most of our Yunnan and Kunming tour packages include the visit of Stone Forest, the two day trips to the Stone Forest below are private guided, we will be glad to customize a package per your specific request.
