Kunming Stone Forest is an awe-inspiring collection of limestone groups that represent the south of China and its karst era.
Known as the first wonder of the world during the Ming Dynasty, this still is one of the most highlighted attractions in Yunnan. People even go as far as saying that if you ever visit Kunming and not see the Stone Forest, you just wasted a trip.
270 million years ago, this part of the world was a sea and over the years, the waters retreated and gave way to the limestones to rise above and be a landscape. After years of carving by nature, winds, rainfall, and erosion, the Stone Forest became what it looks like now.
The Stone Forest is within travelling distance from Kunming and places like Grand Park Kunming. You can find other attractions close to the site too.
The Greater and Lesser Stone Forests, the Naigu Stone Forest, Long Lake, Zhiyun Cave and Guishan Mountain are some of the sites close to the Stone Forest. If you take the time to drive or go to the Stone Forest, don’t miss out on these pretty places located not far from it.
