A visit to China involves various explorations and one such is the natural heritage it boasts. And for some of the most unique landforms in the world there is no better place than South China. Considered a World Natural Heritage by the UNESCO, the Wulong Karst in South China is an amazing sight and it is one of the best examples of this unique topography. Wulong Karst spreads across 500,000 square kilometres and is made up of three typical types of Karst: Libo Karst in Guizhou Province, the Yunnan Province’s Shiling Karst and the main part, the Wulong Karts located in Chongqing Municipality.
The most spectacular are the Wulong landforms which are located near the lower Wujiang River side of Chongqing. It is the most amazing sight, especially when considering the unusual landscapes it features: the Furong Cave, the Houping Tiankeng, also known as the Houping Giant Doline, and the Three Natural Bridges.
The most interesting aspect of this particular landform is the several different types of landscapes it consists of. Eroded dolines, underground streams, gorges, caves, shafts and naturally formed bridges, are all part of this special landform and all have evolved over time through the normal carbonate rock of the terrain.
Each natural landscape also features its own splendid wonders. The Three Natural Bridges are the largest such cluster of bridges in Asia, and the Furong Cave features various Karren sediments affording the most beautiful sight. The Houping Giant Doline is one of the longest of its kind in Asia and it is also the best example of a large naturally formed tiankeng cluster. The Karst of Wulong still remains and retains its glorious natural beauty and significance simply because it is located in a remote area.
For those exploring these amazing landscapes Chongqing features a range of lodging options. From hotels to apartments to guesthouses, visitors can book any accommodation type which suits their budget and needs. Any Chongqing hotel apartments with various facility options, and even budget hotels can be reserved online. Long staying guests prefer a Chongqing serviced apartment and for those keen on a luxury holiday the best option is Somerset JieFangBei Chongqing.
